New Choral Learning Aid Makes its Debut

Composer and conductor John Rutter CBE has launched ChoirGuides, a brand-new choral learning aid for singers around the world. ChoirGuides, out now, is an online tool for singers to learn their individual voice parts and to make virtual choir recordings.

Using the ChoirGuides interactive player, any voice part can be highlighted at will, while singers follow the music on screen.

ChoirGuides also supports singers with recording their part for virtual choirs, where individual singers record from home and their contributions are mixed together to make an impressive whole. Singers can listen to the accompaniment on its own while singing their part (and recording it using a different device) or hear their own part as they sing.

For anyone new to making a virtual recording, there are clear and simple instructions available.

Our initial release of fifteen pieces centres around some of John Rutter’s best-loved shorter anthems and choral songs, together with two favourites by Mozart and Fauré.

Each track has been specially recorded by hand-picked members of the Cambridge Singers, with expert piano or organ accompaniments provided by Royal Choral Society accompanist Richard Pearce.

John Rutter says:

“These are exceptional times, and choirs are responding to the challenge in new and inventive ways. We hope this new tool will prove especially useful now and also for years to come, as choirs will always be glad of help learning their music.”
