ChoirGuides is the choral learning aid from John Rutter.
Singers all over the world can learn their voice parts with ease using our revolutionary interactive player, which lets you highlight your voice part on the fly so that it stands out. Sing along at home while following the music on screen. Using ChoirGuides is like standing next to the best singer in your section!
The site also makes it easier to take part in a virtual choir recording: sing along with the accompaniment or hear your own part in your ear while you record your part.
The ChoirGuides library of thirty-three pieces centres around some of John Rutter’s best-loved shorter anthems, carols, arrangements 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 and John Rutter himself, with expert accompaniments provided by Royal Choral Society accompanist Richard Pearce, and York Minster’s Assistant Director of Music, Ben Morris.
It is free to create a ChoirGuides account. When logged in, choirs and individual singers can browse the catalogue and pick which track(s) they would like to purchase. After purchasing a track, singers will gain immediate access to the piece and can sing along as many times as they wish.
You can also purchase sheet music to go with your ChoirGuides license. If you wish to buy sheet music, up to the number of Guides you purchase, a 26% discount on the ChoirGuides license will be applied at checkout.
