ChoralTech MIDI/MP3 Library
About Our Choral MIDI Library
How to use the files:
The ChoralTech MIDI library contains links to all the music we currently have created rehearsal files for; to get to it, click "MIDI list" in the menu bar (left), or just click here. The MIDI files can be used either directly (just double-click the link), or saved to your computer for use (put into a playlist or a folder, for example). Each method of use has its own benefits and drawbacks:
If you use them from the web page:
If you save them to your computer:
Customize a MIDI list for your choir/concert:
But here's a better way: If you like the files and see how they could pull your entire group through the "woodshed" portion of your concert prep, check out our option for a customized web page that you can link to your group's website, containing exactly the music you're interested in.
Windows Media Player or Real Player will play the files without any problems, but if you want to have more control, you should be able to use most of the commonly-available music software. One piece of shareware that we like is VanBasco Karaoke (link below), which lets you control speed, volume, and which tracks to play.

A word on copyrights:
We believe that copyrights are important. They help creative people benefit from their work, and enlarge the universe of material available to choirs and audiences everywhere. That said, we have not licensed rights to these works. These MIDI files are not performances; they are rehearsal aids intended to make the works available to a wider spectrum of choruses. As such, they should serve to benefit the copyright holder by encouraging sales of scores.
However, if any copyright holder objects to having MIDI files of their work made available here, we will gladly remove the appropriate files (contact ChoralTech support).
In addition, we request that all users have a properly purchased score for each work for which they are using the MIDI files, and that you delete any files downloaded to your computer once your concert date is past.
As you might imagine, it takes time to create these files. A contribution would be appreciated, and would allow more works to be added to the collection. Please use PayPal to make a donation if you find the files useful:
Don't see what you want?
If you would like to request that we create files for music you don't see on the list, please see our "New MIDI file" page. You might also want to check some of the other internet sources of MIDI files.
Can I put these on an iPod, MP3 player, or CD?
In a word, NO...at least in the MIDI format. However, it is possible convert them to MP3 or WAV files. We're not putting this form on the website because the files are much larger than the MIDI format, but we'd be glad, for a small fee, to convert them for you for a limited set of music (your next concert, for instance). Check out the MP3 page for more information.
