What a lovely piece! Just a reminder that one of the things my computer program is really bad at is long held notes (To be fair, it’s a piano thing. I’d be happy to explain it to anyone who is actually interested in knowing.) If you see a note held through three measures in your score and you don’t hear anything in the rehearsal file, just pretend that you are still listening to a nice, long, sustained tone.
Tenors and altos have a very brief split just after measure 40. I did not make separate files since the split is so minor. I trust you all to figure it out.
We’ll do a Latin pronunciation track closer to the start of rehearsals if you all feel you need it. Truthfully, most of the song is the same six words sung over and over so I’m not sure we really need it. I would appreciate feedback on this point.
Trying something new here. I have added lyrics to my musescore file and I am uploading a pdf here so you can start learning the song before we distribute music. Also, if you are away from your score and you have a sudden desire to practice, you’ll have words and music anywhere you can access the internet. It may not look exactly like the printed score you’ll get at rehearsal, but it has all the notes and words.
For playback, click the line you are interested in hearing. To “fast forward” or “rewind” just click and drag the end of the moving line. Click the pause button on the album cover to stop playback. If you’d like to download a track to your own computer, right click on the track line and follow the pop up menu instructions.
