Learning Resources

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.


The Bach Magnificat recording Ivor recommends is here on Spotify or YouTube.
This recording doesn't include the Christmas interpolations. If you want to hear those, these are on this playlist on Youtube from the Dunedin Consort - Tracks 15, 19 & 22 respective to Inserts A, B & C.

Learning Tracks

Bach Magnificat (without Christmas interpolations)
Bach Magnificat with Christmas Interpolations - you'll need to register on the website but once you are, accessing non-copyright works is free.

Choraline provides 'pay-for' learning tracks - on CD or via their app - for all of the Bach Magnificat (I'm assured it includes the interpolations). Remember, when purchasing, to claim your 10% discount with the code BARTS.
