sorry I shouldn't laugh but the vision of a red and white life quaver has me in stitches.

Oh Cali,am very envious that you can sing.I sound like I am strangling a cat.To be musically talented must be lovely.My dp is very musical and gets so caught in the moment when playing/writing stuff.I am useless.I haven't got a clue about quavers and so on-it sounds cool though!!

also PMSL at red and white life quavers - can't do you a link sadly, but love Mozart Req - one of my all time faves to sing (alto), even despite the excessive use of G (not as bad as Handel, tho, is he?)

I would love to start singing again but damaged my vocal cords in my early twenties. If I sing for more than 15 minutes in any hour, I can't speak properly for hours after. I loved it, such a community feeling of singing in a choir.

heh heh - the best Tuba mirum is from Berlioz Grande Messe des morts - virtually no alto part (except in the Gloria) so I sang Tenor 1 throughout - best Lacrymosa and Tuba mirum going! <sigh> not often done because of lack of alto part and needs 16 timps to do it justice (we had 8, that was enough in our concert hall!)

Fond these links - don't know how much use they will be to you but it's a start.

he clearly hated altos, though mamalovesmojitos - we decided he must have been crossed in love by one, which is why he only allowed them into one section. It IS a fantastic work though, and my favourite too (Mozart Req is second fave)

Sorry Califrau - couldn't find anything more useful. I find one-fingered note-bashing works quite well though.. wink
