Rutter "Gloria" Videos

I came across these videos for the Rutter "Gloria" with the sheet music displayed, and thought that they would be most helpful.

Rutter Gloria Resources

It is hard to believe that our concert is less than two months away! Below you will find resources for the "Gloria" by John Rutter for Choir, Brass and Organ. I hope you will find these useful in the learning process.

Cyber Bass - an website that has midi (computer) recordings of each part as well as all of the parts. This is very useful in learning notes but it does not include the words so you will have to follow along with the music carefully.

The archival recording of our Christmas Concert from 2007 should be rather handy as we prepare this piece.

YouTube - What would the internet be today without videos?
These recordings of the Gloria by the University of Utah are quite good but they do use the orchestral version rather than the one we will be using for brass, organ and percussion. The big difference is that the strings and woodwinds take the parts covered by the organ in our version.
