Choralia

http://www.choralia.net/vw01mp3/vw01mp3en.htm

This site offers a complete set of MP3 files of each movement in your voice part, but you have to be online to listen to them. The main technology is named Virtual Singer (VS), as lyrics are also "sung" by electronically-synthesized human voices. It offers each movement in three different levels:

  1. Voice with metronome - that help to learn the "tempo" and to understand the score,
  2. Emphasised voice and other voices - the individual part is emphasized at a higher volume
  3. All voices.

The site recommends that initially, the singer should learn their part using the first two levels, and then to test their knowledge of the music by singing over the third-level audio track.
