Rehearse with Accompaniment

This year, we’re offering a brand new service for competitors, to help you prepare and rehearse for your competition. We are very grateful to Annette Bryn Parri for preparing piano accompaniment files for all our test pieces.

Annette Bryn Parri is one of Wales’ leading and most experienced accompanists and musicians. Read more about her here.

Click ‘play’ on the file below or download a copy to your computer to rehearse for your competition.

Please note that this resource is for rehearsal purposes only, and we hope it will help you when choosing suitable pieces for your voice type. The tempo of the pieces has been set to help rehearsals, and there can be different to performance speed. It is your responsibility to set your own tempo during the competition performance.

This is a pilot project and we are keen to receive your feedback. Please email gwyb@eisteddfod.org.uk with any comments.
