Notes by Nic:
If you have any problems accessing the files, please contact me and I will make sure you get them.
Also: some people find it easier to learn their part with a piano playing the vocal part rather than a voice sound (usually for rhythmic reasons). Let me know if you are one of those people and I will find a way to make it work for you.
You should be able to pan your stereo all the way to the right and hear only your part and all the way to the left to hear only everyone else's parts and all the way to the center to hear all parts.
