MIDI practice files for Handel's Israel in Egypt

Most computer users (both Mac and PC) should be able to click on the links below to hear the chorus (with piano part). The named parts have their volume boosted and appear on the left stereo channel, while all other parts appear on right stereo channel.

The parts below have ONLY the voice parts, and when no one is singing (eg; the intro for "Hailstones") you will hear NOTHING!

The files can be played on most computers by clicking on the links, or they can be downloaded and saved to your local disk using "save link as..." or "Save target as..." (try a "right click" on the item of choice) from your browser, so you can play them "off-line".

If you download them, you can play them unmodified, or change (tempo, instruments, balance) them using any MIDI sequencing program (several are available for free, I use Anvil Studio on my PC -- Mac users might want to check The Macintosh MIDI User's Internet Guide).

The files above were sequenced by K Konradi and came from my friend George Silvis' web site The Silvis "Woodshed", there are MIDI files for MANY MANY choral works. George also offers his (superior) advice on MIDI sequencers to use.
