October 11, 2017 Rehearsal - part 2

Rossini, Stabat Mater
After a brief discussion, Lynne turned the session over to Arnold Lee for a short time, who took us back to movement 5.  Worked the last 2 pages of movement 5 (m. 25 to end) off book as it is memorized to eliminate the final page turn.  Then worked movement 8 on vowels (and off book, also memorized), then on text.  Returned to movement 5, on text.  At 41 minutes 33 seconds, ran the fugue.

We are to invent stories for ourselves on what the music is trying to convey, for us to keep in mind while the end of each movement is played.
