Rehearsal Tracks notes



General Notes


  • For each track the accompaniment will play in the left speaker with the specific part (or parts) for that track will play in the right speaker. You may need to check your speaker balance if you are having troubles hearing either part.
  • There is a practice track for all solos.
  • I have included a MIDI file with all parts saved on a separate track for each selection.
  • If anyone would like to use the Finale files for any reason, such as creating SmartMusic assessments, let me know and I will get them to you.



America the Beautiful (arr. Marvin Gaspard)– SSATBB


Famine Song (arr. Matthew Culloton)– SSAATTBB, 2 solos


Hallelujah (Beethven/McAlister) – SATB


Lambscapes (Eric Lane Barnes) – SATB

  • Each movement has its own practice file.
  • Gregorian Chant – There is only one practice file for this movement. If you have seen the music you will understand why.


The Music of Living (Dan Forest) – SSATB


Tree of Peace (Gwyneth Walker) – SSAATTBB


Truly Brave (arr. Mac Huff) – SSATBB, 2 solos

  • Both beginning solos are on the same track.
  • The part marked “Group 2” in measures 65-71 does not have its own rehearsal track.
