Slur in vocal music

Postby avicitiffany » Tue Dec 19, 2017 4:39 am

Hi all,

I have a choir score and at a certain bar, sopranos divide into layer 1 & 2 (on one staff).

Both layers are a melisma, so should I slur BOTH layers (one slur over and one slur under)? Or just the upper layer?

Slurring both layers makes sense musically, but I wonder if notationally it is overcrowding things? Is there a rule? I have not yet checked Gould chapter, but will do so.

Thanks for any advice!



I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Upper layer. Plus you are right about 'overcrowding' or as we say it in our recording world, 'muddying' mixes.

Here are some resources that might help (Especially with slurring):

1. http://www.vocalist.org.uk/diction.html
2. https://revolutioninthecity.com/how-to-develop-a-strong-singing-voice/
3. https://singingwithmanyvoices.wordpress.com/2013/10/27/portamento-vs-slurring/ (Great advice on slurring here).

Hope it helps. Cheers!
