Corrections to CD for OCDA All-State (Exultate)
Alto: (in the 1996 and 1998 versions these items are already correct.)
Belinda Flynn, Mixed Chorus Chair 2016
September 14) Additional corrections. Exsultate: Tenor line: mm. 100–101 and mm. 104 - 105, the upward stems are missing for Tenors. (It is played correctly on the CD.)(M. 163, Soprano/Alto line is missing the eighth note, G, and the word, "in." (It is played correctly on the CD.)
(Sept. 11) Also, (in Exultate) on page 7, the language track incorrectly pronounces cithara. It should be pronounced as shown below the text, in the octavo: CHEE-tah-rah.
Also POSTED SEPT. 14: BY Madame Flynn. Zum Gali Gali (Soprano 2l) MM. 81 - The pitches should be C# C# C# Cnatural C D D. Currently it reads as all C#s. (It is correct on the CD.)
(Earlier corrections for Exultate: m. 120 and m. 121 should be sung as played on the part CD (G, F#, F#, G, F#,F#)
m 127: the third beat should be an F natural, not F# in the old version this is correct.
m. 130: the word correction is "In" not “Ex”
m. 175 should be a B natural not a B flat - again correct in the old version
Bass Part: m. 155 and m. 156: pitches should be (G, A,A,G,A,A), but again the old version has the same note patterns as measure 33 and 34.
Tenors may sing the lower Cs and Ds in original pitch or one octave above. Omitting the note will result in a score deduction.
