Re: Ralph Vaughan Williams: A Sea Symphony

Still, I think everyone does the SSB too slowly and majestically. It should move along so that the phrases can be sung in one breath, yet because it's too slow, choruses always insert a breath in the middle, thus: "O say can you see (breath) by the dawn's early light..." No good!.... Oh, right you ...
