Timing/note durations

Is there any way to get choral voices to sound smoother/more flowing? The are very detached, even with slurs and with timing durations adjusted.

Even set to 98, or slurred, the notes are sung in a very detached manner.

You can load another sound in the HSSE interface, but then also be sure to change the expression map that Dorico thinks it should use for that channel, so that it behaves properly.
