me and my friends asked to act casual for a picture
Tumblr is a place where time is wasted and things are reblogged.
This is that kind of page.
Reblogging, occasionally writings, mostly likely somewhere in a coffee shop drinking coffee. See ya on the frothy side.
okay quick little nerdy rant here.
I absolutely love singing in a chorus because my college chorus did Mozarts Requiem and DAAAANG.
singing it with all the parts with such gusto and strings and my heart was never more overjoyed. All four parts coming together after such work all semester and the bass - oh don’t even get me started on them because in the second movement I literally get chills every time and being an alto and between the basses, I would forget my part because I was so in love with listening to all the basses sing and trying not to sing along with them. its literally one of my most favorite things about this world - basses singing haha. yeah sometimes the rehearsals were terrible and we got yelled at for not remembering when to come in or making it to the note and then crash and burning after because you couldn’t sight read in a quartet as quickly as you could in a group of 20 but example in the confutatis movement where the bases lead and then the women come in with this angelic voice - it was so much fun to have such contrasting dynamics and then the men would come in all full of gusto and vengeance because they were so tired of not getting the vowels right and they would sing it with such brilliance that the women part sounded even quieter and more floaty and it was lovely.
ORR ORR ORR
when the altos have their low notes (shoutout to all my homegirl altos singing out there - you go ladies) and then it goes up a half step to this freaky weird flat that you don’t think you will EVER remember but then you do and then you realize WHY the composer put it there and it makes the song mean so much more when it conflicts and then the words actual make sense your brain when you translate them to realize what you are actually singing and then it resolves a couple measures later and wow. so much coolness that the composers of the early thought this up and it sounds like nothing our age could think up.
yes. this was a nerdy rant. but i just love harmonies - and it needed to be written about.
