jessie junior

we sang this in the choir at church :)


just one error on hemiola, it is a rhythmic device that only lasts for a bar or two. the way you wrote it, it sounds like this is how the whole piece is written which is incorrect, and you also spelled it wrong. but apart from that, accurate, concise, and helpful


This is really useful thanks!! :)
