Hence Stars will be SSATB. That's why I have two soprano parts for people to select. So First sopranos, please learn the Cantus part, and Second sopranos, please learn the Quintus part. Everyone else should learn their appropriate line - Altus, Tenor or Bassus.
That said, Altos, I know your part on Hence Stars is VERY low in a few spots. If you're more comfortable with the high F than the low D, feel free to switch to the Cantus part. If neither of those notes is in your range, don't worry about it - that low D is the 5th of the chord and thus not vital, plus the Cantus has a D two octaves above that, so it won't be a big deal if it's not very loud. Of course, by the time the concert rolls around, the combination of the smoky Pennsic air and fatigue from too much partying may give some of us low notes we don't normally have. :-)

|Great! Now for one more question: How do you foresee dividing the voices on Hence Stars? SSATB? Soprano, 1st Alto, 2nd alto/female tenor,male Tenor, Bass? We'll know when you see what you have? As a female tenor, I have been going over both possible parts.|
