The purpose of this treatise is to provide an annotated list of choral literature from the Serbian Singing Society St. Nicholas, Omaha, NE. These materials are selected from the Singing Society's concert appearances and choral rehearsals. This project will fulfill several needs of the Serbian Singing Society St. Nicholas in Omaha, as well as of other members of the national Serbian Singing Federation such as the Serbian Singing Society St. George, Kansas City, KS, and the Serbian Singing Society Slaboda, South Chicago, IL. A primary need is to provide the necessary information for the choirs, their music committees, and directors to make an equitable choice of literature for preparation and presentation in concert each year. This music must be appropriate for choir memberships and current capabilities. A second need is to increase the repertoire during the choir year which will provide musical and vocal growth to the members. These two needs will help fulfill the main goal of the Serbian Singing Society Federation, which is to preserve the Serbian Orthodox faith and heritage through musical performance. A further purpose of this project is to provide suitable repertoire for Sunday School children of the Serbian Orthodox Church for those churches who wish to form a junior choir to begin learning the Serbian Orthodox musical heritage. This will help support the goal of participation in local concerts and national festivals for young people in the churches.
