Melisma for à french choir
Date: February 11, 2015
I'm facing a difficult problem with my french choir: How to sing a melisma clearly.
Since there is no "h" sound in french (as in house or hike), they are totally incapable of "h"-ing a string of notes.
We are singing Mozart Requiem soon and the fugue (kyrie) sounds blurry, sticky, like glissando, no articulation or definition whatsoever.
I've tried to teach them how to "h", but, being an aging choir, the task is ever harder.
Any ideas? Technical advise?
Thanks in advance for your valuable advises!
