Some notes (as of May 6, 2022):

  • Work on the text for “Rhythm of Life”.

  • Memorize "Down to the River to Pray" so we can do the clapping part right! (Just like when we premiered in Dec. 2015.)

  • On the back page of "We Will Rest Awhile" - Sopranos and Altos sing the lines with the treble clef and Tenors and Basses sing the lines with bass clef.

  • ** Sing “Irving Berlin’s America” up to the last measure (242) on page 25 then immediately flow over to Roy Ringwald’s arrangement of “God Bless America” at letter “F” at the bottom of page 5. Gail will play a 2-measure transition between the two pieces. To prevent "fumbling" pages during the trasition from "Irving Berlin" to "God Bless America", paper-clip the 1st two pages of "God Bless America" to page 27 of "Berlin" such that page 5 of "GBA" is facing page 26 of "Berlin."

  • Dennis added to the program Gwyneth Walker’s new composition “The Wings of a Dove” which is dedicated to Stanley Curtis.
