Learning Resources – Autumn 2022
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.
Choraline – only has 4 voice parts available however (paid, BARTS10 is a 10% discount applicable to online downloads/CDs only, but not the app’s files.)
Finzi In Terra Pax
McDowall Christus Natus Est
Choral Tracks (paid – not verified as to quality as yet but seems satisfactory from the sample)
Special Note: JohnF Rehearsal Files site has been used by our members – both in Main and Chamber Choir – for some years to access digital files and the catalogue is comprehensive. Out of copyright files are free to access however a reasonably priced individual membership for various time periods is available. Both the Finzi and the McDowall works we’re singing this December are available.
Please note there may be inaccuracies on some of these learning files as we do not have any individual voice parts verified by members of the choir. Please let firstname.lastname@example.org know if there are any significant discrepancies or if you would like to help by sourcing and/or checking learning resources prior to our coming terms.
