Current status: RFC
Initial Discussion



Description

This indicates that an artist is, or was, a choirmaster for an artist. A choirmaster (or choirmistress) directs a musical performance by way of visible gestures. They are responsible for knowing the music in depth and conducting it appropriately. In addition to conducting responsibilities, this position may include composition, research, and musical education for the group.


The titles typically used to describe this position are:

Choir Director [1]
Choirmaster / Choirmistress
Kapellmeister
This title, in the classical era, typically indicated a choirmaster. Caution: In the modern era, this title typically indicates a music director, not a choirmaster.

Attributes

  • start date
This indicates the first date that the artist held the choirmaster position.
  • end date
This indicates the last date that the artist held the choirmaster position.
  • assistant
This title indicates a less experienced, or first-time choirmaster, who works under the direction of a more experienced choirmaster.
  • associate
This title indicates a less experienced choirmaster who works under the direction of the principal choirmaster.
  • emeritus
This title indicates that a choirmaster has at least partially retired, and no longer plays an active role with the group.
  • principal
This indicates that the group had multiple choirmasters who were led by this choirmaster. This may be indicated by either the title of "principal choirmaster" or "first choirmaster".
  • vocal
This can indicate either the type of choir conducted, or that only a specific voice section of a choir was conducted.

Guidelines

  1. The position (and any attribute used) should be documented; it must not be assumed.
  2. At any one time, an artist may have more than one choirmaster, but never more than one principal choirmaster.
  3. A choirmaster must be a person artist.
  4. The artist conducted by the choirmaster must be a group artist.
  5. Only one of the attributes 'assistant', 'associate', 'emeritus', or 'principal' should be used at the same time.
  6. This musical position specifically involves the training, leading, and/or conducting of a choir or chorus. If the position did not involve a choir, then Conductor Position Relationship Type, not this relationship type, should be used.
    In some cases, both an orchestra and a choir coexist, and are conducted by the same artist. In such cases, both this relationship type and Conductor Position Relationship Type should be used.
  7. This relationship type describes a choirmaster position one artist holds with another artist. Conductor Relationship Type, not this relationship type, should be used to describe the fact that an artist was the choirmaster on a track or release.
  8. Do not infer attributes. The use of any relationship attribute to indicate a specific position should be documented, and not assumed. An inexperienced choirmaster is not automatically an assistant or associate choirmaster, nor is a very experienced choirmaster automatically a choirmaster emeritus. Likewise, 'guest choirmaster' is a specific position title; simply because a choirmaster is credited with "guest conducting" on a release, that choirmaster does not automatically become a 'guest choirmaster'.
