Sop (for May Day2
AltoTenorBassNotes from Janet:
The parts relate as they are on the score – Soprano 1 is “This is the struggle, the struggle of a lifetime,” and 2 is “Never ever be afraid.” There are only 3 parts in Stand Up and Be Counted, and 5 in Make Good Trouble

I’m not now going to bring parts out of Make Good Trouble – at a signal from me we’ll all switch to the bass line to finish

everyone sings the bass part at the beginning, and continues to do so until they sing something else, in this order:
Tenor and Sop 2
Sop 1
Once Sop 1 is in we’ll do one more round all together before reverting to the bass line.

ScoreAllSopAltoTenorBassNotes from Janet:
 Notes – structure
The song starts with the choir in two parts sharing the chorus sung over a hum.
into the chant: Which side are you on, I said which side are you on, building up from the bass upwards through the choir
first verse in unison
chorus in the new harmony we learned
verses 2 and 3 in unison
chorus in harmony
spoken bit in parts (will try this in rehearsal and decide whether it’s the whole part or just one or two voices for clarity) over the chant once as before, and carrying on for a second time with all the parts together, but taking it in turns to drop out and speak
chorus in harmony
verses 4 and 5 in unison
chorus twice
