Christmas Music Files

by Director on September 19, 2018

Folks,

First, apologies that these have taken so long.  Second, I decided to put up the ones I have — I’m experiencing a few “issues” with three of the pieces and hope to have them done and up by at least your next rehearsal (hopefully the weekend).  A change from last year — the files are .wav files rather than midi files.  They play very well on the computer and give a true distinction between the piano used for the accompaniment and the English horn used for the voices.  Another change — empty measures at the beginning of pieces have been eliminated on the solo files only.  This means that, on the files with only your individual part, the music starts immediately — no more waiting around for the ghost accompaniment to play!  I’ve also made one more new file for each piece — the accompaniment ONLY.  This means that, once you learn your part and practice it with your part and the piano, you can practice your part without your solo line being played — this really tests your knowledge of the music and I thought it might be fun for you to try.

Here is the link to the GFCC Christmas 2019 folder!

More music files

by Director on March 8, 2018

The links below connect you to a “performance” of the pieces on our Spring 2018 concert.  Many of them are on YouTube and I have made an attempt to match the performance type to the written music (arrangement)– i.e. if the music we have is TTBB, I’ve uploaded a performance by a men’s chorus.  I figured this would not confuse the different parts by listening to a different arrangement.   I couldn’t find one for every piece, but I hope these help.

Music Files for Christmas 2017

September 14, 2017

Ok, everyone, here are the mp3 files for Christmas.  This year I have only created files for each individual voice with accompaniment.  I had hoped that, with the individual work being done at rehearsals, you wouldn’t need files with just the single voice line.  If you end up needing those, please let me know and [...]
