Practice Aids

For almost all of the music we sing there are on-line rehearsal aids.

To use these click on your part; you will hear the full set of parts with your own part emphasised.  If the current music is available on-line you can access it by clicking in the box below; for Midis the relevant file will be downloaded to your device; for MP3s the file will be played on your device.  If you want to download it right click, choose 'Save link as' and select the location your require with your file manager.

Where the rehearsal aids have been developed by the Bach Choir they should be played back using Speedy Midi. Such aids are identified by the symbol: Speedy Midi icon.
