Northshield Choir Webpage

What is this page?
This page is for members and friends of the Northshield Choir. Singers can use the electronic musical files listed below (called MIDI files) to help them learn their parts more easily and quickly. The files listed below are not complete listings of everything the Choir has performed, especially for the earlier performances. All pieces listed have MIDIs for the complete piece (or, a verse and the chorus if the music is the same for all verses). Most pieces also have separate files for each voice part, so you can hear it separately if this helps you learn your part.

If you have trouble hearing any of the MIDI files when you click on them, first troubleshoot your speakers: are they turned on? Are they plugged into the electrical outlet, the computer, each other (if necessary)? Is their volume dial turned all the way down? How about the volume controlled through your computer (click on the small yellow speaker somewhere on the lower right corner of your screen)? Keep in mind it is possible that the computer you're using has no speakers. You may be able to use Walkman headphones to listen to the files. If this isn't your computer, ask the owner or staff about the possibility of borrowing headphones before you crawl under the desk and plug in yours.

The transcriptions listed below, NOT the pieces or arrangements themselves, are ©Jennifer Friedman (unless otherwise indicated), and may not be recopied or republished in print or on the Internet, nor copied to any other computer except as necessary for listening.

Take a look at these photos from our very first performance, at Warriors & Warlords VI, July 1999. Coordinator: Lady Elaine de Beauchamps. Directors: Lord John Chandler Greyfeather and (then) Lady Yasamin al-Hadiyya.
