Half-note Triplets in 4/2 Meter

This post is for sopranos singing Dallapiccola’s Canti di prigionia, and people who like math.

I’m counting in quarter notes, since the tempo is pretty slow. The half-note triplets are every 8/3 of the bar, which is 2-2/3 and 5-1/3 in fractions, or 2.67 and 5.33 in decimals.

I’m singing it like this, which is not 100% accurate, and watching JO.
