MIDI files

Africa

Aliyah

Banana Boat Song

Sorry, no MIDI files at the moment. The ones I had up here were wrong, will fix soon.

Banks of the Condamine

(Men's part is 'piano' sound, women's part is 'harpsichord')

Bura Fera

(You'll hear the other parts at half volume in the background.)

Carol of the Birds

Canaan's Land

Celtic Blessing

Christmas at Home

Dimna Juda Mamo

Down in the River to Pray

 

(L'eguaglianza is filed as "L")

 

Feelin' Groovy

 

Freedom 90 ending

(These are MP3 recordings)

 

Freedom is Coming

Gaudete

Hamba Nathi

Happy Birthday

Haul on the Bowline

Heroes

Note: I have chosen a piano sound for these parts because it's clear and sharp, but it does not sustain long enough for the long notes in Sop, Alto and Tenor parts. Follow in the music and you'll see the long tied notes.

I have included a click track right through all parts because of the long rests and offbeat notes.

If you can't work out how it all fits together, listen to the "Tutti" version.

Horror Movie

I Wish I Knew How it would Feel to be Free

In Dulci Jubilo

In This Heart

(Note: the fermatas (pauses) are left out in these versions - they just play straight through.)

Here is the original YouTube video.

Istanbul

It's a Long Hard Road

L'eguaglianza

MIDI Guide

Introduction

Any modern computer, tablet or phone should be able to play these files. They are not recordings, they are computer-generated music files. They use pre-set computer sounds that are built into your computer or phone. MIDI has several advantages over recordings - they are generated directly from the music software I use, the files are very small, they are very precise in pitch and timing and they are easy to edit if I make changes... or errors!

File won't play?

There could be all sorts of reasons why, but sometimes you can get around it by simply downloading the file (right-click, Save as). You'll probably want to create a new folder on your computer to keep these files, Then double-click the file you've downloaded and it should play.

I don't know where I am in the song

One disadvantage of MIDI files is that there are no lyrics. So is that the first verse or second verse I'm listening to? Your MIDI player will give you a time-count, so just write down the minutes and seconds at the start of the section you want, they you can go back to that time-point whenever you want.

Changing the playback speed

These instrucdtions are for Windows Media Player. I'm guessing other players have the same capacity, you might have to search the help files or google it.

1 If Media Player looks like this, click the Maximise button (circled here) to expand it.

 

2. Now it should look like this

 

3 Click the black bar at the bottom, select Enhancements, Play speed settings
