We need just one more voice for the 5th in this triad
Catherine and Daniela treated the group to some fantastic renditions of classics such as 'Pop goes the Weasel', 'Frere Jacques', and 'All Along the Watchtower' before dinner on our last night. Off camera, John would often join in to add the lower bass notes to complete a classic 1,3,5 triad with the third voice one octave down. Naturally such rich vocalizations drew the attention of numerous citizens of Reykjavik, who responded enthusiastically to the songs. I did sense a little malaise from the gathered crowd with the perhaps overlong version of 'Baby Beluga'.
