2.2 Specific Situations 

Unaccompanied works are generally referred to as a cappella works, but one must be aware that some publishers might sometimes include a piano accompaniment that should only be used for rehearsal purposes. Accompanied choral scores could be categorised into works where the accompaniment is a reduction of the choral parts, sometimes meant only to be used in rehearsal, or scores/works where the accompaniment has a completely independent part that is an integral part of the work.

For the novice conductor, choral scores can be a good starting point for initial reading training and for inner-ear development.
