Two Italian Classics to learn

For Spring 2018 we are performing two works with an orchestra and professional soloists, Rossini’s Stabat Mater and Puccini’s Gloria.

For those long-established members of the Choir the works will be very familiar.  Even if you are a brilliant sight reader or you have sung these works before, the practice parts are still very useful if there is a tricky bit which somehow eludes you at on a Thursday night!  For those of us who have not sung these works before then the practice parts you can access from these pages will be very helpful.  Remember, practice is what makes the difference; knowing the notes (not like Eric Morcombe – all the right notes and in the right order) gives rise to confidence; we will then delight our audience and have confidence in our ability to perform.

So once again we are putting in a link to Choralia where you will find your own part and a variety of ways to practice.

Listen to Choralia practice parts for Rossini’s Stabat Mater here

Listen to Choralia practice parts for Puccini’s Gloria here

Please remember that Choralia is free of charge to listen to or download the practice parts BUT they survive on donations – so please do make a donation occasionally please.

If you would like to listen to the whole work then try these YouTube versions – please note that all YouTube films now start with some advertising, which you can skip after a few seconds of compulsory viewing.  It’s how they make the free stuff pay – there is no such thing as a free lunch on the Internet.

Rossini – Stabat Mater


Puccini – Messe de Gloria
