Midi/MP3 Downloads

After downloading, these files should play on a Windows computer just by double clicking them, but you can be far more productive if you load them into a midi editor. Searching on "free midi editor" brings up several possibilities. I have used the free version of Anvil Studio and found it a good program.

Here are some useful things you can do in a midi editor:

  • Mute everthing but your own part to learn it without distractions.
  • Highlight a tricky passage and have the machine play it over and over in a loop.
  • Slow down a tricky passage to make it easier to learn.
  • Find out how well you really know your part by muting it and singing against the accompaniment and the other voice parts.

If you find a wrong note or broken link please email the information to me at peterkerr@activate.net.au, but note that to get the correct address you have to replace the ate in activate with 8.


Choral Practice App

Bronwen has alerted me to an app you can use on your phone or tablet. It is called "carus music" and their web page is here. You get to follow the score on screen with a moving cursor as the music plays (a proper performance). You can also make it play your part "midi style" over the top if desired. You can slow it down too. All in all a tremendous tool. Both masses we are performing are available to download. The only drawback is that you have to pay for each score you download to your device.
