As well as attending rehearsals, we would appreciate it if you dedicate some of your own time to learning the notes. This ensures that the time spent in rehearsal with our conductor is productive in terms of blending the voice parts well and concentrating on making the overall sound more 'musical'.

Learning CDs or on-line resources, which play your line prominently with the other parts in the background, are a good way to learn if you don’t read music or don’t have a keyboard.

Our coming term - Monteverdi Vespers

Ivor has recommended the John Eliot Gardiner/Monteverdi Choir recording to listen to (Please note this video link's visual does not feature our score version - although it will be similar).

A lot of the following online voice part files/resources have not yet been fully checked for accuracy compared to the score - Clifford-Bartlett (blue cover) - we are using. There are many score versions of Monteverdi Vespers, some movements of which have been transposed and have a slightly different structure.
