Music for the March session
Cole Hunt will be leading us in "Music from the Southern Harmony". He is arranging another piece that will be handed out at the session on Saturday.
Some performance considerations for practicing the pieces:
"Wondrous Love" and "Windham": The melody line is in the second part (which is typical of three part Southern Harmony tunes), so we won't use strict high to low voicing. Basses will take the third line of course, but we can use sopranos, altos, and tenors on the other two lines to have the parts in octaves.
"Soar Away": From the Sacred Harp, this is not a Southern Harmony tune, but a good example of the progression of shape note music. We'll probably use a SATB voicing for this one.
