Here are some links to MIDI files (version 1.2 ! ).
Please practise – lots! – between rehearsals. You may wish to listen to recordings – plenty of choice on YouTube for most of our programme – and MIDI files if you find them helpful.

www.cyberbass.com allows you to speed up and slow down the MIDI but doesn’t have much of our programme.

www.choralia.net is new to me (I suggest you use the mp3 page, not the vs page) and has an almost realistic sound and has lots of this programme, but I haven’t uploaded the links – please explore.

www.learnchoralmusic.co.uk has a very wide range of repertoire but a limited player, no parts emphasis, for instance.
