Sopranos! The list of stuff to take note of are here! I’m exceedingly confident that everyone of us will be able to do them all on stage. Yes?

Both Sopranos: • No breathing in the first 8 bars • Breathe only at the commas and full stops unless you were told NOT to. • Cut away the ses and sts. • Support! • In Elysian plain, feel alone. • And there with joy, feel as though the whole world has stopped. Time has frozen and the only thing that exists is grief/ sadness and sorrow. • The U tongue shape • Don’t rush! It’s a slow, sad, painful… etc, song! • 1st time, its louder than 2nd. Repeat is quieter
Profound sorrow, grief, and heartache – these are the primary emotions of the song. Slow moving greys, deep dark greens, and the deepest blues. The colours of the sea. You stand at a cliff, waiting and waiting, but nothing will ever, ever, come back to you.
To get into the feel of the song, listen to this:
The song is titled Sadness and Sorrow
… and don’t you dare tell me Sasuke is gay.

Ad Dominum cum tribularer
All creatures now
Can you feel the love tonight(LK)
Circle of life(LK)
Crown of roses
Dare to dream
Dashing away with the smoothing iron
Don't let it pass you by
Down by the river side
Find your rainbow
I just can't wait to be king(LK)
In stilly night
Just a single voice
Love changes everything
O magnum mysterium
Oh, no John
Resonet in laudibus
Song Da ge
Take this wings
The Lioness Hunt(LK)
They live in you(LK)
Tiu Tiu Dang A
Weep weep mine eyes
When you believe
Whistle down the wind
Wade in the water
Ya viene la vieja
