Dear Bravi/VTG Singers,

Thank you for your wonderful hard work on Monday. It was a pleasure to work with you a bit on my own.

Please check the Vocalise blog for details about what we did all together. It is important you also go there and look at that information. Go now! Then come back here!

Alone, we mostly worked on Seven Bridges Road. I have tried to reflect the tweaks we made in Rachel’s arrangement below. Please review them carefully. NOTE: Everything is AS WRITTEN unless noted.

  • M. 5: T2 on a d, Bass on a low B.
  • M. 12: Bass in unison with Bar (g)
  • M. 13: As written in the original score (in new key)
  • M. 43 and 44: we massaged the rhythm a bit (eighth note on “a,” “part” comes on the downbeat

I think this is mostly it. Please be sure you review Rachel’s arrangement carefully and learn it AS WRITTEN. It works if you sing it accurately. A copy is attached here as well:
