Practice for Chichester Psalms – don’t miss this!

Thanks to Mary Stacey and John Dervan who have asked us to let you know about these links to practice resources on the Internet for the Chichester Psalms:

 1. Pronunciation Guide

Bernstein Chichester Psalms Mov.1 Hebrew Pronunciation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2q2rF5_7w8o
Bernstein Chichester Psalms Mov.2 Hebrew Pronunciation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGgUP6eaiII
Bernstein Chichester Psalms Mov.3 Hebrew Pronunciation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KPpM5_M4jk

2. Individual parts to download for practice – rather good actually

You will find these on the NW Choral Society website –  http://www.nwchoralsociety.org/ . They are particularly useful as practice guides because they all feature a real(and good) singer in the appropriate voice parts (inclusding 1st and 2nd where appropriate).

They sing the relevant part with words, with a very nicely balanced choir and orchestra in the background to give you the context. Actually these are amazingly good compared with the ‘midi only’ resources we normally use.

Each link takes you to a page with separate tracks for each chorus at performance tempo, plus also ‘study spots’ which allow you to practise the more challenging passages separately. Your PC needs to be able to play MP3 files. You should be able to play direct from the website, or right-click on the link and download to your computer first (Choose an option like ‘Save link’, ‘Save File’, ‘Download file’, ‘Download Media’ depending on your PC, browser and quirks of fate).
