Recordings

On this page are links to mp3 files that point to recordings that are helpful in preparing for concerts. There is a recording of Church Slavonic for the Rachmaninoof as well as recordings of our rehearsals, beginning with September 30. There is a link for each recording.

For best results, right click on a link, then download the file to transfer it to your computer. Then you can use any mp3 software to play the recording. In this way, you are able to see how much time is remaining on the download, and you will have your own copy of the recording to play at any time without returning to the web site.

You can also left click on a link. It may take up to ten or fifteen minutes for the file to download before you hear any music -- (much longer if you use dial-up)
