The Score - AKA getting your copy As soon as possible

You will need a score in advance to prepare! Many of you have purchased your own already (still possible). 

OPTION A: Borrow/Pick Up - Meet Sari on her birthday, Tuesday September 4 at Cafe Vitta, 4th and Washington in Pioneer Square, between 8:30-10am.  Please let Sari know if you are going to be stopping by the coffee shop. Email Her.

OPTION B: Borrow/Drop-Off - Possible, schedule is wacky. Contact Sari.

If all else fails you can use this online score to do your prep, even though it is the wrong version, until you can get the real thing at our first rehearsal.

In the new classical music style...the appetite for a continual supply of new music, carried over from the baroque, meant that works had to be performable with, at best, one rehearsal.

Recommended Reading

Historical context will make this a far more rich experience, knowing a bit about Mozart at the end of his life, and what was happening with musical fashion when it was written.  You can get started with these articles: Classical Era (this one is particularly good), Mozart's RequiemMozart.

IMPORTANT - So.... this piece is long. Somewhere around 50 minutes of music (The Faure was around 35). Some of you already know it, some of you are excellent sight-readers and Latin whizzes, and some of you will need to do weekly prep work to learn your notes and Latin before rehearsals. That way we can work quickly enough to rehearse the entire piece in only 6 90-minute rehearsals before we combine together with the orchestra on Oct. 22nd. (totally possible!) That means I will not be teaching parts individually, or dictating Latin pronunciation line by line. You will need to arrive to rehearsal already familiar with your notes, rhythms and Latin pronunciation, which you can learn pretty easily using the practice resources in this email.

SCORE TIPS

1. English translation - Please write the English translation of the Latin in at the top of each page.  you will sing much more musically if you know what you are singing about, and the dramatic dynamic shifts will make much more sense.  Here is a translation.

2. Prep your score - The very best way to prepare is to listen to a recording with your score and a pencil in your hand.  There are 1000s of versions.  here is a good one.

3. Learn notes and rhythms - CLICK HERE for help.
