Colin Harvey Posted June 7, 2006 Share Posted June 7, 2006 Just listening to choral evensong on 3 from Exeter and they sang "Spi-rit" in the Byrd responses - just wondered whether people think it should be "Spi-rit" or "Sprit". I'm tempted to go for "Sprit" - otherwise you get 2 half beats on the same note for the 2 syllables of this word, which - to my ears - sounds less good. But I can't remember whether Byrd gives 2 quavers and splits the word into its syllables on paper. Have to say Exeter sounded excellent - both choir and organ - as far as I can tell on my rather dodgy internet radio connection - and I certainly enjoyed it.
