Tempo question (Curiosity only.)
I am transcribing a piece for my vocal ensemble, that has through some unfortunate accident, become almost unreadable.
The tempo marking at the start indicates, quarter note = 112 bpm.
About half way through, there is a tempo marking of half note = 56 bpm.
The only difference musically in this section after the second tempo marking, it that it is an instrumental instead of being sung vocally.
Listening to it, there does not seem to be any difference.
