Today at the recording session we recorded Meredith Monk’s “Things” and John Corigliano’s “One Sweet Morning.” As always there was a lot of stress involved because we want to sound as good as we possibly could. It’s always fun being in a recording studio because you get to hear the recording of yourself played back into your headphones. “One Sweet Morning” is one of our favorite songs because of how beautifully the text matches the music. However, it is an incredibly challenging piece of music because of the long phrases. “Things” is quite a different style, being tonal and capturing the essence of new music. Though some parts are melodic others are percussive. It was an incredibly fun and exhausting day and one that we will long remember.
