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.

These midi files were extracted from originals on the cpdl website. The originals have no part emphasis so are not really suitable for choral practice. John Hooper's Learn Choral Music website is a good source if you want files representing the entire sections undivided (not my preference, obviously). Those files have english names so the rhythms will probably reflect the english text.
