2008 Carol Service Practice MIDIs
Here are MIDI transcriptions of the carols we have chosen. Click on the links below to play them, or right-click to save them to your computer. These files should play in Windows Media Player, however I recommend you download Van Basco's free karaoke player, available here.
This player has several useful features:
- Open the Control window to adjust the tempo
- Open the Output window to display the separate tracks. Clicking the red button next to a track will mute it, while clicking the blue button will boost that track while supressing all the others.
Please be aware that the files will give you the notes, but none of Richard's expressions and other embellishments!
