SOME GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS ON USING CHORAL LEARNING WEBSITES

Please use all learning sites in compliance with Australian copyright law.

Choralia

http://www.choralia.net

This site offers synthetic voices singing the words, so that you hear where the syllables come. This also makes it easier to get the rhythms correct.

Select VS tab if you are using a microsoft PC and you will be able to use tempo and volume controls. For MAC, iPad and iPhone you will only be able to use the mp3 tab and will not be able to control the tempo.

Scroll down to your part (e.g. soprano2) and the movement you want to practise.
Then click the speaker in the column you want:
a) your own part with keyboard (left column)     OR
b) all parts, with your part louder (middle column)     OR
c) all parts at the same volume (right column)
When the forward arrow (top box) turns bright blue, click it.

NB: You can use this site online as often as you wish. However, if you want to download files to burn a CD, please note the detailed licence conditions on

Cyberbass

This is a very clear piano version. If you click on your own part (rather than Tutti) you'll hear it amplified above the other parts. Tutti plays all parts together at the same volume.

You are free to use the online links as many times as you like under the terms of Cyberbass licensing arrangements with the composer. Some browsers will allow you to change the tempo of the music. Scroll further down the Cyberbass page and you will find the links to do this. This is useful in slowing down the music for learning purposes.
