It was wonderful to see each and every one of you on Monday night, and on behalf of all of us at Cantabile, we are so excited for another year of exceptional music making!
On Monday, in addition to meeting many new friends, we started three new SATB pieces, and one SSA. Please see your action items for practicing below:
Grace (SATB), arranged by Mark Hayes
Listen to the excellent rendition of the piece on Spotify: BYU Women’s Choir’s CD, “Wondrous Love” which we listened to on Monday.
Learning most of your part for next week. If you’re not sure which part to learn, work on the text and the rhythm throughout.
Here’s the video we watched in rehearsal.
Here’s the video of the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir we watched in rehearsal.
Iraqi Peace Song (SSA)
Here’s the original CD track, of which this choral version is an adaptation.
Other announcements and reminders:
Thank you all for an amazing first week of making music together. It’s going to be a life-changing year for all of us, and it truly wouldn’t be possible without all your focused and passionate work, dedication, and love that you’re going to put into the music. Have a wonderful week and we’ll see you next Monday!
Elena, Jace, and Jazmine
