Mr. Clifford Bair gave an illus
trated lecture for the vocal froum of
the state music teachers ’ conven
tion held in Raleigh, Friday, March
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:, 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.
