A new exercise! This one is about sweetcorn and peas, but also about becoming agile in fast notes. There will be two versions of the song: one with lots of words, one-syllable-per-note and the other with many notes per syllable. The first exercise teaches the notes, the second uses that knowledge. 

These 'runs' are the sort of thing that you get a lot of in Baroque music, but they also require the sort of virtuosity that you might get in jazz and improvised theatre singing, so it's a skill that's worth learning.

There's the secondary requirement of good breath control.
