(3) The MIDI (*.MID) practise files for the various individual parts from “Learn choral music.co.uk”.

If you are a dab hand with a computer or want to try these with your latest high tech mobile phone, visit this site where you can either play directly  or download and save to your device the appropriate files for your voice whether Soprano, Alto, Tenor or Bass, see:http://www.learnchoralmusic.co.uk/Faure/Requiem/Requiem.html

– then you can play them on your MIDI equipped keyboard or carry them around on your midi equipped mobile device.

(For those who don’t know, MIDI stands for “Musical Instrument Digital Interface” – an electronic version of the pianola concept and one that’s been around since about the mid 1980’s.  These computer files contain instructions (eg instrument voice, pitch, volume, ON, OFF etc) – which allow the sound card of your device to play the items using the internal instrument voices within its sound card. Computer programs are also available which allow this to be manipulated (eg voice, tempo, notes ) and which may also reverese annotate the file back to a useable score. MIDI files may be sent as digital information from a file player device such as a computer to an instrument device such as an electronic piano, or sound expansion box using a MIDI cable. For further information see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIDI)
