Sheet Music & Practice Tracks
Practice tracks for each song can be found on Charms. There will be on set of full mix (all voice parts singing together) and then the audio recordings by voice type. On each individual voice part, you will still hear all voices, however, your voice part will be the loudest vocal track on the recording. You will NOT need to learn "Do You Hear What I Hear." It is recommended that you print out each score and create yourself a "Candlelight Notebook." You may also check out packets of music from our librarian at any time.
