Jack Campin Reading Lyrics vs Memorization (203* d) RE: Reading Lyrics vs Memorization 02 Jan 21

How many professional performers have you seen in clubs with the words in front of them?

Every single poet performing their own work.

The classical music scene has managed not to get its knickers in a twist about it: some performers memorize all the time, some do it sometimes, others don't do it at all, and it it never features as a criterion of quality. And nobody in a church thinks God objects to hymnbooks (or the modern equivalent).
