      Yes, please MP3s for me too.  I don't know anything about midis and will be traveling on a bus for about 2 weeks before Pennsic to about 4 different cities, and use my MP3 player to help me in learning the songs, since I don't sight read.

      MP3s would be most helpful, if you can do it. That way I can listen in the car and such.

And I, for one, have never done it in a 50-60 person choir - which will be very interesting! (Maybe even some antiphonal oppotunities?) Plus it should come together quickly since so many of you are already familiar with it.
