      Thanks guys. No worries. We will go over all pronunciations in rehearsal to ensure everyone is pronouncing things the same way. I feel fairly comfortable

        Thanks guys.  No worries.  We will go over all pronunciations in rehearsal to ensure everyone is pronouncing things the same way.  I feel fairly comfortable with German and the Latin.

        I don't feel quite as comfortable with French.  I avoided it like the plague in college to nasal sounding for me.     

        Is there anyone on the list who speaks french well enough to help out the ole director with the pronouciation of of Chantez a Dieu?

        Thanks!

        My choir has been singing this piece for about a year now, and that was pretty accurate except that the words beginning with S usually don't sound like an English "S", but either a "Z" or an "Sh."  For example, "sein" and "sich" are pronounced "zine" (long i) and "zich" (short i, Scottish ch), while "stein," "stimmt" and "stets" are pronounced "shtine" (also long i), "shtimt" (short i) and "shtets" (short e).

            Master Corun loaned me a really nifty book that may help us "periodize" (I'm pretty sure that's not a real word - - but it gets the point accross) the modern French.

            Your help is always appreciated.

            See you next week!
