2014/03/09 -- week of March 10: choral balance and blend

Post date: Mar 9, 2014 8:29:54 PM

Hey Singers,

This week we'll focus on balance and blend in the chorus. Getting this right is important: it distinguishes good choirs from great ones.

On Monday, we'll cover "Hostias" (page 52-58), the ending movement "Requiem/cum sanctis" (page 73-80), and time permitting, "Sanctus" (page 59), "Agnus Dei" (page 68), and the homophonic portion of "Confutatis" (page 39).

On Thursday, we'll read through from beginning to end, take a break, and then (possibly) work spots after break.

Thanks for all of your good work!
