NOTICES! (Posted June 17 and August 24)
Additional rehearsal notes for CD corrections on Pseudo Yoik
Comment on Pseudo Yoik "nau"
Several have asked about ambiguity of "nau" in voice track. "Nau" is the spelled–out diphthong Nah-oo, but without the precise pronunciation of the classic language. When we sing the English "no," it is a diphthong also, but pronunciation ranges in speech from short "no" (non-diphthong) to Okie "nah-oo" with fully enlongated diphthong (or triphthong, or quadrithong). Most iterations of the word, "nau" in Pseudo Yoik are very brief. Sing short versions like English "No." and longer pitches as Nah––––––oh using a light unaccented and open o. In other words they are essentially the same syllable, because most occurances are very short in this composition. This is not a composition for splitting pronunciation hairs, because of its dialectal genesis and its joking, satirical quality.
Correction (CD) for Take Me to the Water :
On the second time through ms 19 in the tenor line: CD plays B natural and it should be B flat. (Posted August 24)
