Song 1 : It all begins with a dream - Don Besig & Nancy Price.


    This song should be smooth and care taken with the dynamics. Long notes should be held on for the full value.

    Pages 2 & 3 After the piano introduction the ladies sing the melody, the men then sing the melody a little louder.
    Finally everyone sings the melody slighty louder until the top of page 4 when we gradually get quieter.

    There will only be one recording of pages 2 & 3 since everyone sings the melody.
