Ed - Hey, thanks for the clarification. You're right that what I was hearing is actually called a "yod," which is a term I was previously unfamilar with.
However, in my defence, according to Diction for Singers (the text I was taught out of freshman year) a glide is "characterized by a movement of the articulators from from one position to another. The glides in English are [r], the y sound [j], and [w]." Therefore, when I heard the 'y' sound added to the word "knew," I assumed that it was just an innapropriate insertion of the [j] glide. I wasn't aware that there was a term more specific to the dialect and context. Thanks for setting me straight on that.
PS: Suzie, I think MC and Ed pretty much covered it. Please let me know if you'd like me to try and clarify anything else. I hope the review was otherwise helpful for you. Best of luck with your future endeavors.

I have to be honest, if you'd said 'yod' rather than '[j] glide', I'd have been just as clueless!
I suppose it doesn't help that us Oxford folks spend most of our lives surrounded by so-called 'rahs' (people who think that 'sex' is something you put coal in and that 'yes' is pronounced 'ears') cos, y'know, that kind of spoken English is catching. I used to have a fine West Country accent...
I think I understood everything else in the reviews, thanks! Just a question of figuring out how to fix these things! Sadly outside direction isn't a option for the group (unless we found someone willing to work for freeeeeee!) but but but ootb's MD (who is awesome) is going to come and work with the group on an arrangement he's written (yes written especially for ITP! (it might possibly be pink-related...))
As for my own recording skills... well, S2N gave me a pretty good idea of what I need to do there! Hopefully the next stuff you guys get from me will be muuuuch better... hopefully...

Sorry, Rob. That wasn't meant to be a call-out. It's just that I spent so much time in those damn Diction classes and I so rarely get to use anything I learned there....unlike that Introduction to Astronomy class I took that proves to be more and more useful every day of my life.
