For major seasons of the year I prepare rehearsal CDs ... typically recording the SA, TB, then SATB voicing for each song. I will give very brief instructions at the beginning of the recording and "spell" the voices, then give a lead in count, play the voice parts using use a piano patch or an 8' string/oboe with a 4' flute when on the organ, and any verbal instructions needed during the recording at special/difficulty places.
I would like to ask if there are tips you can give that would make my rehearsal CDs more useful, and your experiences in making rehearsal CDs. In addition to the CDs, I typically e-mail the MP3s to the choir as well.
As always, thank you for reading my message and your wonderful replies,
