When Japan opened up to the world in the middle of the 19th century, considerable effort was invested in completely reorganising and modernising the country in order to make up for Japan’s supposed backwardness compared with Western civilisation. Even the world of music underwent a paradigm shift: Japan began to integrate the west's music system into its own culture.
The “new” education in music was largely based on singing, and choral singing is still a popular activity. The best choirs, amateur and professional alike, have played an important part in broadening the repertoire by commissioning new works, enabling Japan to enjoy a choral literature of high artistic quality.
