I wasn’t planning to create another video this year, but this brief demo illustrates both the capabilities and the limitations of what can be achieved with Dorico and the EastWest Symphonic Choirs for an excerpt from the Hallelujah Chorus:
Note that the lyrics you see are completely independent from the lyrics you hear. The former are managed by Dorico and the latter are managed by WordBuilder. For example, here are the Votox syllables with English vowels for the phrase “and He shall reign for ever and ever”:
An HE S!Al riEn Fo re vu rAn de vur
If a syllable begins with a vowel and the previous syllable in the same phrase ends with a consonant, I usually move that consonant to the start of the next syllable.
By default, the word ever is pronounced eh-vuhr, which is not how real singers would pronounce it. It is possible to tweak the pronunciation of individual syllables in the Time Editor of WordBuilder, but I didn’t attempt to do that for this demo.
