Repertoire

Practice CDs
Non members of A Cappella may purchase part-enhanced audio practice cds (instrument=piano) containing your choice of pieces from the choir repertoire, listed below, which are in the public domain. It may also be possible to include pieces not in the choir repertoire if I am able to get the music, and as long as the music is in the public domain. A typical cd would contain around 25 pieces of an average of 3 minutes, the maximum total being around 75 minutes. The charge for the cd, including postage and packaging, is Ł5 (U.K. only, for other countries the postal charges will increase the cost. Details sent when you mail me), working out at about 20p per track. The cd will be in a paper sleeve with an insert giving the details of the tracks on the cd. For each cd you wish to purchase, please email me the following details:

Your part, e.g. Soprano 1
Your name and full address, including postcode
A list of the pieces you require to be on the cd, giving the full title of piece and the composer, with initials if there might be any ambiguity.

If you only need a few pieces but for more than one part, this is also possible, e.g. you might need just three pieces which are all divisi for all parts, giving 24 tracks.

I will check that I have the pieces you require and whether they will all fit onto one cd, and confirm or ask you for alternatives to any I do not have, or ask you which to delete if they will not fit onto one cd.
The only payment accepted is by Paypal, (details when I mail you) and when I have received confirmation of payment, I will send your cd within three working days.
