On Consonants

"The consonant is not the natural enemy of the vowel. A quickly occurring consonant need not interrupt the legato any more than a twig cast upon a flowing mountain stream impedes the current."

Richard Miller, Solutions for Singers: tools for performers and teachers, Oxford University Press, 2004, pg. 119
