The men began our great rehearsal today with incredibly beautiful sounds. Many thanks to Dr. John Ray and his advice about using the "nnnn" sound as a way for the tenors to place their headvoice when singing around a D above Middle C.
The men didn't see it, but I did: the women were swooning. Or, at least, Megan G was. Actually, I swooned once or twice--it was a lovely sound. Tender, yet manly. (grin)
Now . . . if I can just find out who was singing that overtone "A".
The women--were strong. Strong when they needed to be, delicate at other times.
Our goal: get better every day. Today: success at that goal.
Finally: thanks for the warm birthday wishes. I'm not the type that enjoys that kind of attention but I do appreciate your kind words, cards, and gifts.
