About Oxford difficulty descriptions

For each of our choral pieces, we provide information about ‘Difficulty’ levels to assist choral directors in understanding whether a piece is suitable for performance by their choir.

The descriptive levels are characterized in the following ways: 

Very Easy

Straightforward harmonies and rhythms; mostly homophonic with no large vocal ranges; usually with supportive accompaniment.

Easy

Mostly rhythmically straightforward; possible straightforward key changes; limited amounts of divisi in places.

Moderately Difficult

More complex rhythms and counterpoint and/or harmonies; ranges may be broader; key and time changes and possible divisi throughout.

Difficult

Often includes multiple key and time changes; demanding vocal lines; divisi sections; complex rhythms.
