Learning Tracks

To shorten your quartet's or chorus's learning process, overbalanced learning tracks for seventy-seven of Walter's arrangements have been produced by professional vocalists (so far), and links to those singers are provided below for your convenience. We have placed the respective links in the Learning Tracks column, corresponding to the respective Song Title rows, to help you locate the tracks.
