Notes about “Without His Cross”:

“Without His Cross” has a beautiful melody and accompanying harmonies, and will be familiar to most of you.

 

As before, you will watch Jeff conduct you on the video while using the sheet music. Please print out the music and place it next to your screen so you can see both the conducting video and the music.

If you do not have a printer at home, we can either mail you a copy or you can pick one up at the church office, weekdays between 9am and 4pm.

 

You can choose the vocal part you want to sing, so follow either the soprano, alto, tenor, or bass link to hear your part. For example, if you choose the alto part you will hear mostly the alto line with the other parts in the background. You can also listen to the one that has all the parts.

 

Sneak a breath whenever you like, this always works well as people sneak breaths at different times and we get a continuous sound. The last note is impossibly long, so again, breathe when you need to and come back in. I will tie it all together.

 

Practice by singing along with the video until you are ready to record.

Relax, enjoy yourself! God loves to hear us sing no matter what.

General Notes about Recording:
  • You can use either earbuds or headphones to hear the music. 
  • As before, you will be watching me conduct you on the video while using the sheet music. Please print out the music and place it next to your screen so you can see both the conducting video and the music.
  • Try to frame your face so that you are about level with your camera, have light in front of you, and a static background behind you. 
  • Film in portrait mode, not landscape. 
  • Be expressive with the words. 
  • It’s ok to smile
  • Just sing your video and send it in without listening to it. They all sound good to me. If you have a moment that does not turn out so well do not worry about it because you have people singing with you. That is the beauty of singing in a choir! Relax, enjoy yourself! I believe God loves to hear us sing no matter what.

  • Feel free to sneak a breath whenever you need one. When I put it all together those breaths will be hidden by those not taking a breath the same time you are.

  • Practice by singing along with the video until you are ready to record.
