Omnes Gentes Plaudite Manibus

All sixteen parts; one featured voice:
The score made for us by David Miller has SATB parts for the St. Louis Choir. There will be another choir plus 8 parts for the brass instruments.
These recordings have all 16 parts. The brass instruments have their own sounds. The human voices are “oh choir,” which sounds like we do when we sing on “doo.” The featured voice is a trumpet, trombone, or tuba. It is louder than the other parts.
Because there are so many parts, it can be difficult at first to hear your part. But if you listen a few times, you will be successful. It helps to look at a score while listening. And you can always start the recording over if you get lost. Adjust the volume. (F2 is softer, F3 is louder.)
Soprano (Sounds like a trumpet)
Alto (Sounds like a trombone)
Tenor (Sounds like a trombone)
Bass (Sounds like a tuba)
Sectional practice for women:
SA (Soprano is a trumpet, alto a french horn)
Sectional practice for men:
TB (Tenor is a french horn, bass a tuba)
All eight choir parts, no brass instruments:
Tutti (Has the 8 parts sung by the 2 choirs)
We sing choir II. That is lines 5 through 8 on this score.
