Files "cleaned" Nov/10

J S Bach

Passion according to St Matthew

There is an excellent performance of this Work starting here.

Here is a "clickable" Table of the available Midi Files for this Work (these were all originally keyed in from a very old version of the buff Atkins 1938 Novello score - similar to the green Novello score - NOT the older Troutbeck Novello score, and NOT the modern Jenkins "New Novello" score)

Note that, regardless of what the Score may say about Choir 1 and Choir 2, in the Files below the "Soprano/Alto/Tenor/Bass" columns include all those Voices' parts (including those pieces when one or other Choir is singing by itself), while the "Soprano 2/Alto 2/Tenor 2/Bass 2" columns only include those parts where the two Choirs sing different things. So, if you're in Choir 1, use the first set, while if you're in Choir 2, use the first set either when you're singing the same thing as the first Choir - as in the Chorales - or when you're singing on your own (as in No: 26), and use the second set when you're singing with the first Choir but doing your own thing (as in No: 1)!

Part 1 is immediately below. Part 2 is on the next page
