Rehearsal Resources

Here are some links to various sites that will enable you to hear your part and sing along. Cyberbass seems to be the favourite for the tenors but you may well prefer one midi file over another because the “voice” used sounds better/nicer to you.

Most of these sites allow you to download the midi file. You may well then be able to run it on your smart phone and be able to carry it around with you.

Puccini

  1. http://www.cyberbass.com/Major_Works/Puccini_G/puccini_messe_di_gloria.htm. Cyberbass is generally reliable and has some good facilities
  2. http://www.learnchoralmusic.co.uk/Puccini/Messa-di-Gloria/messa-di-gloria.html. The files work well enough for me despite warnings about Windows Media Player
  3. http://gasilvis.net/  You will need to search for Puccini

Brahms

  1. http://www2.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Geistliches_Lied,_Op._30_(Johannes_Brahms). Click on the loudspeaker entry in the third item
  2. http://bit.ly/1jSPfvf. SCoreSe page allowing download of an mp3 or midi version

Casals

Unfortunately this is still under copyright so cannot be made available. However, there are performances available online and I will prepare a similar post with links to performances of the works
