Tenor Notes 11 December 2019
I was optimistic that there would be no more notes to mark! Here are Andy’s collection from last night.
P5 First bar. Pronounce child as Charld
P7. Cross out omitted verses – just in case!
P9. Delete verse 7 (never sung before Christmas Day)
P10 Keep tempo in last two bars; f verse 4 after the ATB ‘oo’ in v3
P11 Coventry Carol has 4-bar phrases throughout.
P11 Verse 1 stave 3 “sing?” becomes a minim with crotchet rest
P11 Verse 2 mark as f and forceful; Stave 3 place “t” of might on second beat
P11 Verse 3 mp (not p); remember no break in “sing by by”; warm sound needed.
P14 Confirmed unison vv1 and 4; harmony vv 2 and 3.
P15 Bar 5 change minim to crochet on num; add crotchet rest.
p23 Pronounce saeculum sehculum
P27 Bar 4 entry mark f “And keep”
P28 All pause marks interpreted as quaver out
P29. Hold notes at end as same chord for start of p30
P38-39 Remember both notes on Christmas the same (second note is NOT a semitone Lower)
Five is 2 beats; Rhythm on Gold is on a quaver followed by a dotted crotchet; Rings is 3 beats + rest.
Final verse, motto ral after the five gold rings: Watch C
P43 Crisp. Watch for Ral in final 2 bars last verse
P45 Now is Nah; last bar grass is crotchet + crochet rest
P49 Tenors ff rather than mf in last bar of page and first of next page.
P50 Watch for poco rit.
P51 Harmony v 1 &2, descant v3. NB unison last 2 bars of vv1&2 as marked.
P61 Watch for accelerando at start of page followed by molto ral.
P61 Last line – Break after final Christmas.
See you all 5 pm on Tuesday.
