At 80 dotted quarter notes per minute I run into two problems: Fingers getting twisted up and Loosing count of the repetitions. As a skilled amateur, after a few minutes of practice, I played 12 bars before getting tangled up. After a fingering adjustment, I played 20-or-so bars before losing count. I don't see fatigue as being an issue, even in an ...

The arranger almost certainly added some sustain pedal to maintain the sound of the low G and F.

As a sideways answer, consider one of my favorite pieces: the seventh movement of Ligeti's Musica ricercata. (See a faster performance here.)

yo, I agree, you can have your 'standards' that have good technique meaning healthy singing and also experiment with ya voice. Did you record yourself? It is more important how you project, then how 'nasal'/soulfull it sounds to yourself. Mostly the tone should come out clearly and then is 'styled' within this projection (be it nasal/soul-ish) imho. Have fun!...
