Hi, Bravi and VTG:
Thanks for your work these last two weeks, which has largely been separate from my agenda with Vocalise while Elena has been out of town. Next week, things should be much more like normal… if there is such a thing in Cantabile! 🙂
Here are some notes for your practice this week:
Action Items for next Monday:
We Are a Circle
What I Have Done
Esti Dal (Bravi only)
…as well as this YouTube clip of a Hungarian man speaking the text. Pay close attention to his vowel colors and the energy in his consonants (particularly the doubled ones!).
Evening darkness overtook me near the woods.
I have put my coat under my head as a pillow;
I have put my hands together
To pray to the Lord, like this:
Verse 2 (all)
Oh, God, give me a place to sleep,
I am weary with wandering,
With walking around and hiding,
With living in foreign woodlands.
Verse 3 (mostly tenor)
May God give me a good night,
May he send me a guardian angel,
May he encourage our hearts’ dreams,
May he give us a good night.
Additional Announcements and Reminders:
Many thanks, and enjoy your practice!
Jace, Justin, and Jazmine
