Note from the arranger:

There are a few wrong notes in the learning tracks:

Baritone on "and dad-" should be Ab C (not Bb Db)
Baritone on the next ms. "thanks" should hold the Ab across the bar for a beat or 2 and then resolve after other pts.

Also, the Tenor note on "long" should be G natural. It was sung on the track as a Gb
