Berkshire Choral International

Our study CDs are for everyone

Choristers who are accepted into a Berkshire Choral International singing week get a free study CD to help them learn their parts in advance. But the study CDs listed below are also available for sale to anyone else who wants them.

These CDs will help you learn the notes of the choral sections of the works. Details of tempo, phrasing, and dynamics will not necessarily be the same as those for your chorus. On many CDs, the text is also spoken when in a language other than English. The specific edition being used is mentioned. Note too that these recordings are study tools, not artistic products.

About voice parts

Please note that only CDs recorded in recent years are available in voice parts. Otherwise, piano accompaniment and singers on each voice part are recorded in stereo; the soprano and tenor are on one channel and the alto and bass on the other. You will notice, however, that in some cases, under format, it says "Sop/Alto, Tenor/Bass." In these cases, you can get a disc with just the soprano and tenor parts on it or just the alto and bass parts.

Purchase

Study CDs can be purchased for $30 each and may be copied (multi-disc sets may cost more). Call 413-229-8526 with credit card information or send a check to:
