Homework!

Many choir members will have obtained Music Dynamics Choraline (see Links) rehearsal CDs/downloadable MP3 files, and now their brand new three-step learning method for practising at home. To get a choir discount enter SCC in the appropriate box on the order form.
Cyberbass is an American alternative which provides, via its web site, rehearsal CDs, by voice part, and, more conveniently perhaps, a free on-line service for major choral works (but not many English!).  Choraline and Cyberbass each have their merits.  While Choraline CDs give you helpful voice cues for each entry, Cyberbass (best accessed via Internet Explorer) allows you to adjust the tempo so you can rehearse at a lower speed if you need to, which is quite useful.  See Links page to find out more. You can also listen to most works by downloading Spotify (around 5 per month subscription) and, of course, there's always YouTube.
