Rehearsal aids for Autumn 2018:

You Tube recordings give the choral works in concert performance. They are good for hearing the context and the full harmonies.

Howard Goodall: Eternal Light. Individual movements on You Tube

Vaughan Williams: Dona Nobis Pacem. Individual movements on You Tube.


Choralia provides free training aids for choral singers. Audio files are provided, which allow singers to gradually learn their individual parts by listening to electronically-synthesized sound.

Howard Goodall: Eternal light. Midi Files ‘Choralia’

Vaughan Williams: Dona Nobis Pacem. Midi Files ‘Choralia’.


ChoraLine sells rehearsal CDs or downloads for individual voice parts. This means that they can also be used for practise in places without internet connection (eg car journeys).

H Goodall: Eternal Light. Buy ChoraLine CD or download.

V. Williams: Dona Nobis Pacem. Buy ChoraLine CD or download.
