Online help: Cyberbass and MIDI rehearsal files
MIDI files are a kind of computer-readable music that any PC can read and play. Choral rehearsal files have the different singer’s parts provided separately, and a file specialised for the soprano will have other parts muted and the soprano part brought forward.
It’s pretty straightforward. Links above, with each piece of music.
If you want to learn a bit more about this, read (eg) at John’s Midi File Choral Music Site.
