If you don't see what you want, or something doesn't work the way it should, please email us. Thanks!
To elevate the quality of choral music performance by providing rehearsal/study aids.
Special #1: Handel's "Messiah"
We've created a special page of MIDI/MP3 files for the use of choirs around the world who will be performing Handel's Messiah this season, whether in concert or as a sing-along. Please use them and spread the word! Thanks...
Special #2: Mozart "Requiem"
...and for those who are performing the Mozart Requiem in remembrance of the victims of the 9/11 attacks, you can link to this page.
Anyone who has been involved in a choral or other musical group knows that preparation involves a basic level of learning the notes and rhythm (the "woodshed" period), followed (hopefully!) by a higher level where musicality and craft are the focus. We have found that audio tools built on the computer using MIDI and MP3 formats can be very helpful in getting choirs out of the woodshed and into the more fun aspects of choral performance.
In addition to shortening the "learning curve", these tools also have some spinoff benefits:
We also plan to offer links to other web resources aimed at improving your choir and your choral experience!
How to use the site
It's pretty simple...just follow the MIDI Library link to the MIDI list, and find the piece(s) you want. You can either 1) play them right there by clicking the link, or 2) right-click the link, save the file to your computer, and play it from there.
If you want to get a little more creative and have a web page created with just the files for a set of music you're preparing for a concert (which your whole choir can use), contact me and we can work out the details. I can also create MP3 versions of the files for you to use on an MP3 player, iPod, or CD. There's more info on the "MIDI library" link about these options.
That's about it...enjoy!
