Start of Term - January 2018

Dear all,

Many thanks for your hard work at both the Workshop on saturday and our first formal rehearsal on Monday

What we did:


  •  pp 57. plenty of crescendo in opening two phrases. continue the diminuendo throughout the long 'tis'
  •  bar 7 and 8 quaver off 'tis'
  •  pp58 bar 12. watch for a little slow down
  •  bar 14-15 much crescendo
  •  bar 19 much more bass required (big breath)
  • 21 sopranos really prepare in  advance for you top G

More work on Osanna next time


  •  Much 'K' every time
  •  slightly detached 'eleison' - bar 23,25
  •  slowing down at bar 27
  •  bar 54 onwards - well done on this! Keep every entry strong and light on the 'eleison'
  •  bar 73,75,77quaver out of 'son' 
  •  bar 143 ignore small notes

Qui Tollis (Gloria)

  • always aiming to the 'no' of nobis
  • bar 141 careful of the tuning in this bar - Altos keep the G bright

Next week I hope to be with you for the latter part of the rehearsal. Mark will rehearse you through till the break
