Answers to Voice Questions.

W. E —Tradition sanctions the pronunciation of the first syllable of the word Abraham as if spelt Ah, when sung in Oratorio. In chanting, such a pronunciation would appear forced and pedantic. I should give the first syllable the long sound of a, and the second syllable the ah sound.

C. L. N.—Since the space of the Question and Answer Department of The Etude is not sufficiently elastic to compass an exhaustive treatment of the technical questions contained in your letter of inquiry, I advise close attention to the subject matter of the Vocal Department, which in time will unquestionably cover all of the points suggested by the article from which your questions were quoted.
