Theory of Numbers

Is there a number of students in the ensemble that is needed to create "critical mass" for note learning?  We jumped in choir from 12 to 34 students this year and I am finding we are learning notes much faster.  Having the reinforcement has to help.

On the flip side does it become harder to really rehearse since you can't focus individually as much on tone production, diction, phrasing as you can in a small group?
