Gabriel Fauré - Requiem

Choral Music Practice Files

https://choralmusicpracticefiles.bandcamp.com/album/requiem-faure-satb

Forty four synthesised tracks in alphabetical order (not the order of performance).  Each voice part is recorded at normal volume and all other parts are recorded at half-volume to enable the listener to hear their own part louder than all others, while still being able to hear the others in the background.

Choralia

https://www.choralia.net/fr02mp3/fr02mp3en.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. 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.

John's Midi File Choral Music site

http://www.learnchoralmusic.co.uk/Faure/Requiem/Requiem.html

This site gives a complete set of Midi Files for this Work.  You can download and save the tracks to your computer, and can then play them without having to be online. John points out that there are several different versions of this Work, and several different Scores - which broadly follow either the Novello scheme or the Rutter/OUP scheme. The version we are singing is closest to the Novello scheme, so click on the above link to see a "clickable" table of the available "Novello-type" Midi Files for this Work.

Please note that in sections 2, 3 and 6 the Tenors or Basses have not been divided.

The Silvis Woodshed

The MIDI files were sequenced by George Silvis and have only the choral parts (ie, no accompaniment) and are constant velocity.
