Rehearsal June 4

Dear singers,

Two more pieces are added to our Fall program this week and the last.

Couperin - In Notte Placida

Rameau's Dominum is all together a different story. When learning it, keep in mind the unity of tone, holding final notes the full length non diminuendo, as if you were an instrument, not a voice.
