Follow me to the choir!

When life is great and everything is going your way it feels good to go to the choir and share your happiness singing together with the others. When life is boring or just very stressful it feels extra good to sing away a few hours and forget all about your problems for a while. You do, you know. Try for yourself!

I joined the choir because a friend of mine was a member. This isn't the kind of music I normally listen to, but it has grown on me and I like most of the music we're singing. Below are some MIDI files left from my time in Bodal Chamber Choir on Lidingö (where I'm no longer a member).

Songs

Here are some of the songs we've sung. Since I'm no good at reading scores I had to find another way of learning the songs, so I bought a music program, MusicTime, for my computer where I can enter the notes and then the program plays them for me, using Quicktime Music Instruments. Very handy, in my opinion. The sound isn't too good, but good enough for my purpose. The program also lets me convert the songs to MIDI-format, and so I have. You can get the files I (or other choir members) have made (*) directly from this page. The other files I've found on the net, and the links for them go to the pages where I found them.

The music files here are only intended as practise material for personal use. If any of the files sholdn't be distributed according to some copyright law, please let me know, and I'll remove them.

If you haven't used MIDI-files before there is some useful information on Mac tools and DOS tools at The Silvis Woodshed, where there are also many more MIDI-files.
