Igraj kolce

Yesterday was an exhilirating rehearsal because of this
This is a 12 measure section of Igraj kolce - our Slovenic piece - where it goes from 3 part to 4 part. Not a tough read, but it wasn't working on Wednesday. Goede heard Wednesday's rehearsal, its problem, then suggested this approach. This a 3 part song - SSA - but in the 4 pt section, divide the choir into 4 sections equally. Instead of thinking of the section as SSAA or as a soprano divisi (as it is written), just think of it as SSA to 1 2 3 4 to SSA. It worked beautifully.
I am so grateful for the shared ideas of choral colleagues. Truly, a treasure in this journey.
