Playing these now

Just click on the link.  Your browser should know how to play these files.

Depending on the speed of your Internet connection, you may have to wait a few seconds for the file to begin playing. 

Download the files

To download a file, right-click on the file link and choose “Save Target As…” from the pop-up menu. 

 

You can then save the file in the location of your choice on your computer.

Playing downloaded files on your computer

Once you have downloaded the files, you can play MP3s on your computer using a number of applications, including

 

  • Windows Media Player (should be a part of Windows)
  • Real Player / Rhapsody (often installed on newer PCs)
  • iTunes (free to download from Apple.com/downloads)

Playing on MP3 players

Once you have downloaded the files, you  can import these files into your iPod or other MP3 players using the software appropriate to your music player.

Creating your own CDs

For CD players that can play MP3 CDs:

 

  • Use your computer’s CD burning software. 
  • Be sure that the CD you create is a data CD
  • Consult your CD burning software documentation for details.

 

For CD players that can only play music CDs, iTunes is an easy free way to burn music CDs:

 

  • Import the files into iTunes
  • Create a playlist containing the MP3s you want to burn
  • With the playlist selected, click the “burn disc” link at the lower right corner of the screen.
If you need more help, consult the iTunes help screens.

Downloading multiple files at once

For your convenience, where possible, all the files for a specific voice part have been "zipped" together in one file.   These appear at the bottom of the list of files for each work.

To download a zipped file, right-click on the file link and choose “Save Target As…” from the pop-up menu. 

You can then save the file in the location of your choice on your computer.

Note that these are very large files and downloading them may take some time, depending on the speed of your Internet connection.

Newer operating systems should allow you to open the zipped file and extract the files to your preferred directory by double-clicking on the file name once the download has completed.  If that doesn't work for you,  you can still download the files one at a time, as described above.
