Focus on singing the five pure Latin vowels(a=eh, i=ee, a=ah, o=oh, u=oo).Other pronunciation notes:"J"s are pronounced as "y"(Jubilate = Yoo-bee-lah-teh and ejus = eh-yoos).Deo = Deh-oh, without diphthong (not Day-ohw)Laetitia = Leh-tee-tsee-ahTerra should be pronounced with a soft rolled r.It sounds almost like teh-dah, with a really light r and d.introite = een-troy-teh with a rolled r.Domino = Doh-mee-nohFocus on breath control and clear cut-offs.No breath and crescendo from mm 6-7 and mm 59-60No breath from m11 to m12 (connect "last" and " the harvest")Staggered breathing from m 31 to m 37.Use doo-doo instead of loo-loo on mm 17-25.Maintain a pure "oo" vowel throughout.Lips stay in an "oo" while the tongue flicks a soft "d" at each note change.
Focus on rhythm and clean, crisp consonants.Focus on phrasing and dynamics.There are a few spots that have alternative notes for either sopranos or baritones. Use them as needed.Solo- mm 6-13 (3 may try out at Workshop)
Nice recording of this song, but not exactly as we will be singing it.
Another YouTube link--similar but not exactly like the 3-part version
