His discussion considered the tech nique of interpretation that will achive a definite projection of the expression elements contained in the composition which will occasion a definite response from the hearers true to the composer’s intention and as the interpreter or interpreting group feels them. There are three phases in the study of a vocal composition: fir.st, the in ducement phase, the background of the number; second, the embodiment phase, a study of the form of those expression elements that emerge from the background; and third, the projection of that form which in cludes both visual and oral mediums. The oral mediums include consonant sounds which Mr. Bair defined as un realized tone and vowel sounds which are the free expressed tone funda mentals. The object is to project the various word phrases with a defi nite and appropriate tone color. A practical application of vowel sounds and modification to develop ment of a technique for choral sym phonic work was demonstrated in the rendition of “Adoremus te,” “In These Delightful Pleasant Groves,” and “Subsidence,” by a selected group from the Choral Ensemble.
