Good morning Bethlehem! Another day has dawned in the little town and the citizens are bustling with activity. Bethlehem's mayor and his staff of one are hard at work announcing the new tax from Caesar Augustus. Meanwhile, angels are polishing their halos in heaven for a big announcement, and a young couple from Nazareth are preparing for their first child. By midnight, a miracle will occur which will change the world forever! Includes 7 songs.
Available: Director's Manual, Singer's Edition 5-Pak, Reproducible Pak (dialog, lyric sheets and activities), ChoirTrax CD (stereo and split track accomp.), Preview CD (with vocals), and CD 10-Pak (10 Preview CDs for individual rehearsal). Performance Time: Approx. 25 minutes. For Grades 1-6.
A Choirtrax accompaniment recording contains the entire musical or collection twice: once with Accompaniment Only, once in Split-Track Accompaniment format.
The Split Track accompaniment recording is a normal stereo recording, playable on any audio system, large or small, that includes some way to adjust the levels coming from the left and right channels.
On the left channel:
the recording has the complete accompaniment playing - full instrumentation.
On the right channel:
the recording has the full choral vocals, omitting any solos.
The result is a very flexible product. With a mixing board, you can choose to use as much or as little of the vocal parts as you need and you can route them to different speakers for different use. Many choirs use a certain amount of the track vocals only in the choir monitors so that they can hear the vocal parts, but the sound being picked up by the microphones above the choir is overwhelmingly the live singers. Split-Track recordings are great for rehearsal also because you can use more of the vocals when learning the music and less as you get closer to the presentation.
