Notes for Basses

September 20th, 2011

From Section Leader Ray:¬† A couple of small things I’ve meaning to bring up – but have slipped my mind at rehearsal.
Rachmaninov:
1) Chorus 11: P.72, Mm. 11-14 are missing from the bass 1 rehearsal disc.
2) Chorus 13, P.85  Assuming we are NOT singing  the alternative bass line (Ossia), basses split into THREE parts in Mm. 36 & 37.

Response from Dr. Whitmire:
We will not sing the first 4 measures of page 72.
I will assign just 4 basses to the Ossai bass line on p. 85.
Thanks for these good points.
