Dona Nobis Pacem Youtube Videos:
The Youtube videos include the score. Unfortunately, the voice-part practice always includes the lengthy soloist passages. You will probably want to learn to bypass the soloist parts and get right to your own part. Every video shows a slider that tells you the elapsed time. One drags the slider to a certain time to find the choir parts. I recorded the approximate times of choir entrances, which should help.
Dona Nobis Pacem – 1. Agnus Dei
Dona Nobis Pacem – 2. Beat! Beat! Drums!

Dona Nobis Pacem on Cyberbass:
On Cyberbass you can control the volume and speed easily. And the recordings have only the choir parts, so you do not have to figure out how to bypass the passages sung by the soloists.
Dona Nobis Pacem audio:
A few recordings I made before I discovered the Cyberbass offering. These are helpful because you can hear more than one voice part. And there are no lengthy soloist passages. They are very easy to play, just one click.
