Rehearsal July 13th 2021

Jerusalem

We were given a little sheet and told to be sure we use that one because there are different versions out there so be careful not to learn the wrong thing on YouTube.

Angels

  1. Give a bit more ‘d’ at the end of verses.
  2. Remember the sniff, which is to ensure there is a break in the sound at that point.
  3. After the sniff is a crescendo (gradual increase to peak volume)
  4. Try to hold the note on the Ah’s rather than going flat (“scooping”)

Anthem

  1. Breathe somewhere without an “S”
