Feb. 2, 2012 Rehearsal Notes

In sectionals we worked on Lamb of God #14a  mm. 32-41 and 14b mm. 60-92. Then we moved on to Cindy and split up into Choir 1 and Choir 2. We worked on mm 1-37 and mm 207-251 with both choirs. It would be wise to go through your score and mark where you are singing so you don't get confused because there are a lot of places that would be easy to lose your place.. We then did a run through of Consider the Lilies. We reviewed mm. 1-47 of My Soul's Been Anchored, paying special attention to the accents and the rhythms, making sure to get them correct. Then we ran through Pilgrim Song mm 30-50. Finally, we started working on the tricky rhythms in It Takes a Village, mm. 85-end.

In SATB we went through Lamb of God #6, Hosanna. We worked on the rhythms and making the phrasing sound fluid. We reviewed #12b, Gloria. And then we worked on #13a, Jesus, My Savior until the end of rehearsal.

Also, just a reminder that next week is our Valentine's party and the Sopranos and Tenors are in charge of treats. Thank you all for a great rehearsal this week!
