wrong (?) note in Kverno's "Corpus Christi Carol"
Date: November 20, 2013
Trond Kverno/Corpus Christi Carol (Walton Music, licensed from Norsk Musikforlag A/S, Oslo; copyright 1985, 1992)
Does anyone know whether the very first Alto G flat is a misprint, bearing in mind that on subsequent iterations it is the second G flat that is flattened? After all, in that first chorus, the flat sign next to the second G is redundant.
Or is it the other way around - should both Gs be flattened each time? (i.e., the repeated chorus has a typo - the flat is missing from the initial Alto G)
A) The Dale Warland Singers recorded it as printed; several others groups do so also.
B) The Oslo Cathedral Choir recording has them singing G flat throughout, treating the G natural as a misprint; again, other groups take this route.
Either version sounds ok: the G flat option is less jarring, but the G natural more intriguing.
I wonder if anyone has access to the original Norsk Musikforleg version?
Thanks for any insights,
