Eyes, eyes, eyes! Look up from your scores MORE! His tempos are different, and that is okay!
ALWAYS look up entrances and releases!
Tenors - solo line, move your air. Don’t let the tone get stagnant.
M. 54 - “ad te” - we all move at different times. Count!
M. 63 - unison line was under pitch.
“Nih” - consonant needed at the end of “eleison”
Final cadence - D natural is under pitch
More alto! More bass! - make your
“Christe” - consonant good when forte, but non-existent when soft.
Bass - m. 75 - “eh” vowel needs to be more rounded
Chorale altos - add to the tenor soli line - m. 20-38
“DO” - no “doh”, “daw”, zero dipthong
“Te” no dipthong
Sopranos - under pitch today. Don’t sing so soft that you are under supported--use your full amount of air. Watch for the tempo. You rushed some spots.
M. 31 - be ready for that entrance! Also, the first two notes of that section are THE SAME, they do not go up until the word “an”.
More alto needed throughout out. Bass part too.
MEMORIZE the last page - don’t turn it. Look up.
M. 48 - he slows down here.
M. 51 - sopranos, watch for your entrance.
Movement 2 (it’s slower)
Tentative singing all over the place! If you are not completely confident on your part, get thyself to a practice room and work on it! Mark your beats. Subdivide the 8th notes!
We’ll be singing this staccato all day long, so get ready.
Altos, G sharp m. 84, the second one is still flat. Most are still singing a G natural.
Basses, m. 81-83 is GROSS! TUNING!
M. 90, add a break between the two Amens, same thing in M. 92. Sopranos, you were jumping the gun early.
Tenor 1 - m. 92, I can’t hear the tenor 1 line.
Accent quarter notes (6/4)

It’s like some of you are just seeing the words for the first time! HELLO?!?!?!
Be certain that you got all of his breath marks and accents and cresc.
M. 58 - The words in this measure are ca-la-mi - we have said this over and over! You need to add the last syllable, because the hole punch took it out.
