For our 2021 virtual festival, the wonderful Robert Melling prepared many backing tracks for us.  We are going to continue to make these available to all our performers, for rehearsal purposes.

Some of the tracks relate to pieces which are relevant to the current festival, in which case we shall leave the Class number in place.

Our Festival Backing Tracks are stored on our SoundCloud account. You should follow the links below to PLAY or DOWNLOAD them. Each one is available at two speeds. Please be careful to select speed that will suit you best.
