This page contains music files for each piece of music to be sung at a particular event. Each music file here plays all voices at equal volume with none enhanced. Once you have practiced using the music enhanced for your voice on the relevant voice page (Soprano 1, Soprano 2 etc.) you can use the files here to get used to the rest of the voices and picking up your entries from the other voices and orchestral backing where provided.

Click on the piece you want to play and the music will start. The small arrow on the left of the play bar will change to two vertical bars and you can click on this to pause the music if necessary. Volume can be changed by sliding the light coloured bar on the right of the main bar just after the small speaker icon.

There may also be a YouTube video for some of the pieces following the relevant play list and these can be played by clicking on the small arrow in the middle.

the Pavane here:

http://www.choralia.net/fr07mp3/fr07mp3en.htm  – BUT BE AWARE that bars 47 & 48 (“Faites attention!”) have migrated from the Soprano to the Tenor in this version.

Sleep here:

and Lux aeterna here:

http://www.choralia.net/ld02mp3/ld02mp3en.htm

 

You can also find the Beatus vir and The Ground (Part of the Sunrise Mass) on the same website should you prefer to use those – just click on the home icon (little house) and then the MP3 icon to access the list of .mp3 files.

If the “Choralia – donate” screen pops up you can ignore it and continue as I make an annual donation anyway.

I also have New College Chorale versions of all of the above should we decide on a New College Chorale arrangement.

Eric Whitacre – Sleep

After discussion with Andy I’ve included 3 videos for this piece.

The first, apart from being a superb rendition of the piece, is useful as, with fewer people singing, it is easier to pick out your voice part to sing along.

The second demonstrates the legato effect best (I had to look it up as well) -basically joining those long phrases smoothly

And this one good for vowel training
