Practice tracks and other items for the Fauré Requiem

At the bottom of this page, you can view or download instructions for placing measure #s and corrections in the Kalmus and Schirmer editions of the vocal score.  (Note: these instruction sheets now include Dr. Gresham's (Carnegie Hall conductor) corrections to the vocal scores.)

This table relates the movement in the vocal score to the corresponding practice track on Gail's practice CDs:
                                       Movement                               Sop  or  Alto      Tenor I  or  Bass I        Tenor II  or  Bass II

The practice tracks for the Fauré Requiem on Gail's CDs can be streamed at Cyberbass:  www.cyberbass.org(Fauré Requiem)    Click on this link to go directly to Cyberbass's page for the Fauré Requiem.  Select the track you want to hear and use Cyberbass's handy player to play your part(s) - slow down, speed up, etc.

Note: when using the Cyberbass tracks or the practice aids below, not all voice parts have 1st entrances at or near the beginning of the movement.  This table should help you locate the beginning of your vocal part in the movement (measure number from the beginning of movement) and approximate time (min:sec) from the start of the movement to the 1st entrance of your vocal part.
       Movement                          Soprano              Alto                   Tenor                 Bass
       I.     Introit & Kyrie            (*)         
       II.    Offertory                     m79 (5:00)                                                             m23  (1:52)
       III.   Sanctus                                                  m54 (2:36)
       IV.   Pie Jesu                       (solo only - no choral content)
       V.    Agnus Dei                            
       VI.  Libera Me                    m37 (1:13)        m37  (1:13)       m37 (1:13)       m37  (1:13)
       VII. In Paradisum                                         m26  (1:23)       m21 (1:06)       m21  (1:06)
              (*)  No entry means that the vocal part starts near the beginning of the movement.

Individual movements with the scores:







Listen and follow in your scores to this rendition of the Requiem:


Below are practice tracks from Berkshire Choral International (BCI).   Page numbers in the track titles refer to the Kalmus editions of the Requiem. This is one of the editions that the WVC members will use at Carnegie Hall and for the Orange County concerts.   
(Sorry that these tracks are a bit "noisy" - that's the way that BCI sent them out.)   Stream these tracks here or download them to you computer.  Then play them there, make a CD, transfer to you smartphone or tablet, etc.  




The WVC singers will be using one of two editions of the vocal score: Kalmus or Schirmer.  In order to sync these two editions in rehearsal, each singer needs to place measure numbers into their scores.  Below are instructions for where to place the measure #s.  Either "view" or "download" these instructions.

The Vocal Score (below) is in the public domain and was obtained from the Choral Public Domain Library:  http://www2.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page.  You can view it online or download to you computer.   

MidAmerica has indicated that the Rutter edition of Fauré Requiem will be used in Paris.  (In the future I will place a mapping of the differences between the Rutter, the Kalmus and the CPDL versions of the vocal score.)
