Monteverdi Midi Files

Russell our lovely new choir master has sent us midi files of the Monteverdi vespers. He says they are a good learning discipline. They may be but I CAN'T listen to them. They are like some form of audio torture. I won't listen to them. I can't.

  1. Found this whilst searching for MIDI of Monteverdi. I have just used MIDI to help me through a couple of Bach Motets; couldn't have done half as well without it.

    It's not supposed to sound nice: you do that with the singing. What it does do is have some machine help with the note bashing (rather than some poor repetiteur), and help develop some muscle memory of singing the whole sequence. On the other hand, if you can play piano and sing simultaneously, then you're made.
