So proclaimed Carl Crosier yesterday, in reminding choristers about the next Mass in B Minor rehearsal which is tomorrow night (March 8 at 7:00 pm). Some people have already found that the “tessitura” (vocal range) of the work is very high and have asked to be put in a lower voice part. “Everyone will be in GREAT vocal shape at the end of all this,” Carl promised.
Here’s the rehearsal schedule so far (Updated 3/9/2011):
March 22 and 29 are blank, because the rehearsal order will depend on how much gets done on March 8 and 15. If you miss a rehearsal, you are asked to check with other singers in your section for the markings.
The Bach B-Minor postcards arrive on Wednesday!
