"The ensemble is slipping because some people are counting and some people are hoping."
-Christopher Betts, Associate Director of Music of the National Cathedral
This quote had all of us in the quintet nodding our heads in approval. After he delivered this perfect line during rehearsal, the fantastic choir at the National Cathedral nailed all of the entrances after long notes. This is great advice that we all need to hear from time to time and reminded me of one of my brief posts on this very subject from a couple of years ago.
More counting, less hoping.
