The Bach Chorales
Volume 1 & 2
The Bach Chorales is a professional, fully featured music program containing inspiring performances of Johann Sebastian Bach's famous Chorales. Listen to a professional choral ensemble sing some of Bach's most enchanting compositions, complete with a detailed multimedia history of the life and times of Johann Sebastian Bach.
We've recorded each voice (soprano, alto, tenor and bass) on a separate track, allowing you to listen to each part independently. Powerful multimedia features let you study the arrangements, hear the music, and sing along with a top chamber ensemble.
This interactive program contains high quality vocal music, a fascinating history of Johann Sebastian Bach, and a timeline of his life. With seamlessly integrated MultiTrack audio, MIDI, chord symbols, lyrics, and music notation, The Bach Chorales turns a typical sound card equipped PC into a vocal performance powerhouse!
With The Bach Chorales we encourage you to "join the group". The music is presented in different forms for your study and enjoyment:
- audio (with full muting and soloing capabilities for each part)
- printable musical notation with lyrics, which are synced to the audio track
- piano keyboard display of the individual parts and MIDI format for further study.
- a mini mixer, which allows complete soloing, muting, volume and panning capabilities for each voice.
While studying a certain section you can loop the section, so that it will play repeatedly. You can isolate any one voice as the four parts have been recorded with total separation. When you feel like you're ready to "join the group" , you can mute the part that you are singing and really feel like you are pulling your weight 100% in the performance of this Chorale. Of course, you might prefer to just sit back and enjoy this beautiful music. You can do this by using the 'Play All' feature, or you can set up your favorites list. For more control over the individual tracks, including muting and soloing, panning and volume etc., click on the 'mini mixer' button to get the audio controls window.
Hours of beautiful listening music!
