Birthday Carol

Here is a lovely recording from the Dale Warland Singers although there’s no video. The balance on the women’s verses is just lovely. I like the way they hold that last note although it’s not in the score.

Here’s a competent performance by a group from Plano, TX. Pretty sure they could use some more of those dynamics Mary Lee is always going on about. You can also hear a little bit of a weird problem with this song. It’s simply difficult to say the “gl” sound so many times. You tend to get hung up on the g when you should just glide over it to the l. It’s much harder than it sounds.
