Extra beats

This is going beyond rubato here. This music has the occasional irregular measure, and I am going to have to start thinking of it as a sort of in-measure vocal cadenza, a bit like that wonderful Perry!Journey one in “Sweet and Simple,” where he just hangs up the band for a second and tosses in some ornament before they come back in and the song proceeds. I’ll try to follow the general contour of the original piece when I do it and see how it comes out.
