WORK ON THIS SPEECH:
(Chorus before Act IV)
Now entertain conjecture of a time
When creeping murmur and the pouring dark
Fills the wide vessel of the universe.
From camp to camp, through the foul womb of night
The hum of either army stilly sounds,
That the fix’d sentinels almost receive
The secret whispers of each other’s watch:
Fire answers fire, and through their paley flames
Each battle sees the other’s umber’d face:
Steed threatens steed, in high and boastful neighs
Piercing the night’s dull ear; and from the tents,
The armourers, accomplishing the knights,
With busy hammers closing rivets up,
Give dreadful note of preparation.
THE FIVE FREEDOMS:
Freedom from strain.
Freedom from phoniness.
Freedom from unclarity.
Freedom from jerkiness or false rhythm
Freedom from monotony.
Relax and breathe properly.’
Sustain vowels and n, m, ng,l.
No glottal shock before words beginning with vowels -- elides instead.
In back of each consonant enough pressure to get out strongly.
