Choral singers get App Happy

Naxos has released an app for choral singers. Called LoveChoir, it contains a number of features that may well make it appeal to choral singers. There are four recordings and scores including, for Handel's Messiah, Tallis's Spem in Alium, Vivaldi's Gloria and Faure's Requiem, plus information and samples on 25 further works, with the opportunity to download them in full. 

There are sections on warming up, exercises with recorded accompaniment and advice on technique, plus pronunciation guides with audio examples, guidance on reading music, a 20,000 word e-book on the history of Western choral music, with over 2 hours of musical tracks plus lots more. Different things will appeal to different singers, but the pitch bar and metronome sound useful to everyone. All for just £4.99. Of course, you have to have an iPad! See a preview on YouTube.
