Clark Co. Choir Workshop Songs

Jubilate Deo

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-ah
      Terra 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-noh 
 

Night Time Whitehill

           Night Time (YouTube link)     
 
     Focus on breath control and clear cut-offs.
      No breath and crescendo from mm 6-7 and mm 59-60
      No 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.
 

Howdidow, Deediddleumday 

   Howdidow, Deediddleumday (YouTube link)

        Focus on rhythm and clean, crisp consonants.

 

O, America

           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.

                Rexburg Childrens Choir Performance (MP3), Video

 

     Another YouTube link--similar but not exactly like the 3-part version
