Trouble with decrescendos
Date: April 23, 2014
Hello all. If there's anyone out there that has any advice on effective choral decrescendos, I would greatly appreciate it! My choirs are good at the crescendos, but when they decrescendo they tend to go breathy and flat. I also have to really coax them into singing softly. I try to explain the need to maintain a pure sound without the breathiness, and to...well, not go flat. It's not a terribly clever way of putting it, and they often have trouble getting it. How can I get my choirs to do a first-rate decrescendo?
