Q: Are these actual voices or just MIDI files?
A: These are professional voice recordings. You get the benefit of not only pitches and rhythms, but text, line, dynamics, and more. These are great for ensembles of any level.
Q: How can I use these?
A: Download them and post on your own website, burn your own rehearsal CD, link your students to the site and let them download the files to their iPods, MP3 players, phones, laptops, etc. The use of these resources on websites is limited to non-commercial businesses/organizations. If you wish to use them beyond this description, please contact our Licensing and Copyright department.
Q: Really, how much is it? Is there a subscription fee? Do I have to pay per song?
A: All Part-by-Part MP3s are free.
Q: How do I know if Part-by-Part files exist for the piece we are working on?
A: Just look for the Part-by-Part LOGO on the front of the octavo. Every work published this year is covered!
Q: Will you be creating Part-by-Part files for some of your older works?
A: We hope so! For now, all chorals published from 2008 and onward have the Part-by-Part resource available to you.
