January 4, 2017 Rehearsal - part 2

Bruckner Te Deum
Before working on movement 4, Lynne reminded everyone to memorize p. 22 measure 39 to end (which may turn into measure 37 to end).

Began with movement 4, Salvum fac populum tuum.  First, Lynne went through and told us where to mark all the solo parts so we won't sing them; this is chorus plus tenor and bass soloists.  Measure numbers are in the podcast.  After that, the same process as in movement 1, speaking the text on rhythm, reciting the text in rhythm on a neutral tone, then singing text on notes.

Ended with movement 5, In te, Domine, speravi, same method of working on the text and rhythm.  (begins 36:30)
