  1. Hallo for Tomorrow Will Never Come I am a bit confused. Before only Group 1 were doing the harmony for some of it and the descant now the they’ re only doing the harmony but weren’t Group 1 the high group? If so wouldn’t it be better if they did the descant as that is high?

  2. Hmm – you could be right Hannah! I have reworked the song, trying make it easier and I may have got a bit confused! I think I may have decided to split the group 1 part within the group as the descant will only need about 3 singers. Many thanks for you vigilance!!!

  3. Thanks so much John for writing this great play. I couldn’t have had a better one to introduce me to Dynamo.
