Thanks! I now can accept the instrumental beaming on vocal parts.
Honestly, I also do not like this tradition. >

There is indeed!
Actually, not a mistake (deliberate or otherwise). As Gould says on p. 435, the tradition is/was to beam across syllables within a beat. The second syllable in ‘rising’ goes across a beat boundary, so is not given its own beam. I don’t know whether this makes the convention more logical or less; I do know that, as a choral singer (who can sight-read rhythms!), I loathe this convention.
