The first section contains midi files, which are computer generated sound files and are small, so quick to download. I have found out that some devices, e.g. smartphones, won't readily play these files, so there is a section further down the page which contains mp3 files, which smartphones will play. These are bigger files so will take longer to download. They will play on your computer too, and you can use them to create your own CD.
When you click the wee  icon for your part, your media player should open and play the music.

Some tracks are slower than performance speed for practice purposes.
If you want to save the music on your computer so that you can play it when you are not connected to the internet, right click on for the voice part you need and click on "Save Target as..." or "Save Link as..." or something like that, and save the file in the folder of your choice on your computer. Your computer will usually offer to save the file in "Desktop" or "My Documents". A lot of people save the files on the "Desktop" so that they can open the files straight away after starting the computer.

* Sunrise Carol - the divisi within the parts is fairly straightforward, so I haven't done separate files except for the Bass, 'cos there's a bit more to that. If you feel that you would like your part split, let me know.
