Yes, but live, Fred and Walter sing "One King". On the studio album, I sang both parts. It should sound somewhat different. Sarah sings all the high parts, and sounds very young. Bethany is an alto and doubles the parts that Flo does on the live material.

Yeah, I was paying close attention during the DVD and was kind of weirded out by that. But then again, not everyone can double themselves on the octave for live performance. :shrug: :roll:

So Bethany's an alto? Wow, I always assumed she was a soprano for some reason. What about in WWWY? She looks, by the way she's opening her mouth and all, that she's the one going for that high A. And Susie's singing the tenor melody, and Flo's an alto too. So Bethany's an alto with a big range, right? (I thought Susie was mainly an alto, too, actually... an alto with a big range, once again...)

And one more thing: you know that line "sons of adam, daughters of eve" on WWWY? You told me that on the CD it was somewhere in the mix between the last two verses, sung by Sarah somewhere in the upper ranges. i've never been able to hear it. Did you include that in the NF performance? If so, who sings it, so that I can watch them? It's driving me crazy!

You're right. They are doing the high stuff. I was thinking of Chronos Deliverer I guess. One of the sopranos does the Adam and Eve thing on the DVD, but not NEARfest. On the album "lex rex" it is done by Sarah.

It was supposed to be sort of vague, but not quite that vague!
Can you hear it on the DVD?

I didn't hear it either the first listen (of the actual DVD - I didn't hear it on the online clip either), and I was watching carefully. Now I'll have to go look even more carefully...

Awesome signature, Brian! And I like the buddy icon. ;)

You won't be able to see it because the camera isn't on the girls during that line. In fact, I think I only had whoever did it, sing the line 'daughter of eve', because there was so much to sing there. It is there, I promise. Very high - near the end.
