The Silvis Woodshed - This very extensive site owned by George Silvis has been developed for the purpose of allowing vocalists to practice at home. The home page is classical, with links at the bottom of the page to a wonderful list of madrigals and a Christmas page. No lyrics are included in this collection.
CyberBass - This website is designed for choral practice. The list of choral works on the "Index of Music" MIDI page is organized by composer. For a given choral work, click the "tutti" link to download the MIDI file. You can also download MIDI files for specific SATB voices for the same work, but there is no need to do that if you are using Notation Musician or Notation Composer. Some works have their own pages, and you just need to click on the title to go to the page for downloading the MIDI file(s).
John's Downloadable MIDI Choral Site - This copious site contains MIDI files of choral works, madrigals, and other Part-music pieces. On this front page, he gives some pointers on using his site. The works are arranged by composer, and you can click the text links near the top of this front page to go to the respective lists of either choral works or madrigals. For the choral works, you will be taken to a page that lists the available works by composer in alphabetical order. Clicking the title of the work takes you to the page where the MIDI files are available. To aid in practice, the files are listed in a grid by which vocal part predominates, and there is an unemphasized version. If you're using a Notation product to download and open these files, you'll only need to download one of the sets of files for a particular work, preferably the unemphasized set, as you can do your own volume adjustments for the vocal parts within Notation. Otherwise, you'll probably need to download each file set for each part you want to hear. If you need to download multiple files, be careful because all files for the same section of each work (each of the vocal part files) have the same name, so either you'll need to rename the different ones something you can remember or you should download each vocal part set into a suitably named vocal part folder. The madrigals are all available from the madrigal composer's page, simply by clicking the file you want.
Free Choral Music - This web site offers choral works (and some traditional works) alphabetically by composer and by song title. To download the MIDI files, just scroll down the page and right click on the MIDI to the right of the song you want. There is also a page on this site that is dedicated to piano and voice.
ChoralTech MIDI Library - This website has a collection of choral works with the choral parts parsed out into various files, or the entire vocal ensemble in a single file ("all" filenames). The .mid files do not contain the lyrics, but those can easily be added as well as the voices changed if you are using Notation Musician or Notation Composer. One caveat here is that the filenames do not include the song name, and so you may want to change the filename to something more easily understood when you save the file to your computer.
Choral Archives - This MIDI file site, specializing in choral music, offers a small but varied collection of works by different composers. Note that these files have the extension ".midi", which you will need to change to ".mid" in order for some programs to read the file.
Please note that all links in this directory (except the Samples and some Bass Practice files) go to other websites. While I try to make sure that these are safe sites, I cannot guarantee them. If you find a problem with a website that I have linked to, I would appreciate your letting me know at email@example.com
