Opening Rehearsal Notes

It was great to get back together again and to meet some new faces and some old ones who have returned after considerable absence in some cases.

The first piece of important news is that we have a date for the next concert—2015-01-31.

We started on the Beethoven Mass in C. John is going to rehearse this in strict sequence so tonight we started with the Kyrie which went well. One thing to be aware of is that wherever possible we will sing “Kyrie” as three syllables. The phrase marks seems to suggest otherwise but that’s what we want.

In the second half we started on the Credo and reached the bar before A. We will pick up there next week.
