Thank you, all, for your patience with a very tedious exercise on the Jenkins "Tellehim" Monday night (9/25). I think it will pay-off as we work deeper into the piece. I know it was difficult to hear on Monday, and I wanted to share a scan of my score to help clarify any questions you might have. You will see where I have marked breaths, and where I have marked omissions of notes. Any further questions, please let me know before rehearsal this coming week. THANKS for all your hard work and commitment!
Some Chorale members asked me why we pronounce our Latin as we do. The short answer is: because that's the way I learned it, and I am fortunate enough to be musically descended from a long line of well-educated and skilled choral musicians from the Westminster Choir College school of thought. There is a longer answer, that is summed up in this excerpt from a well-respected text by Robert S. Hines, renowned Julliard-educated composer, director, and educator in choral music.
