Start with rhythm part 1. After 4 measures, add rhythm part 2 and so on until all rhythm parts are playing. Next, start the vocal arts with their part 1. Continue adding parts in order through part 6 until all parts are being played and sung. Repeat the "all parts" version for a predetermined number of times (it occurs twice on the P/A cassette, side one). Stop all vocal parts for a four measure rhythm interlude. Start again with all parts going, then eliminate part 6 of the vocals, then 5, then 4, etc., all the way back to rhythm part 1. End on beat 1. Add a fermata to it, if you like.
