carus music offers a whole new choral music experience and the innovative possibility to learn one’s own choral part by means of an innovative coach. Every passage in the music can be skipped to with playful ease. Rehearsals and concerts will thus be even more enjoyable!

You always wanted to go to the next choir rehearsal well prepared and no longer stumble over difficult passages, right? This is at last possible with carus music: learn your choir part in no time at all – whether you can read music or not.
The app is based on carefully prepared Urtext music editions from Carus vocal scores synchronized with recordings by renowned interpreters. Every measure can be directly selected thanks to the intuitive navigation within each work, and the original recording starts exactly at this point. A marker that moves synchronously with the music simplifies the orientation. Turning pages occurs either automatically or manually. A special feature offered by carus music is a coach to help you learn the choral part. If the coach is activated, your own part is clearly emphasized and you can practice with the recording of your part within the overall sound. The slow mode can be used for fast and difficult passages – from now on you decide on your learning pace. Learning your own part will thus become a special experience and singing will be even more fun!

carus music supports you in getting to know and practice the most important choir works:
• one app with the top choral works
• sheet music in high resolution and familiar layout by Carus
• Carus vocal scores synchronized with first class recordings
• Acoustic coach helps you learn your own choral part
• Fast passages can also be practiced in slow mode
• easy navigation
• swift retrieval from your personal library

Each user can test the app with a free choral setting – naturally with its complete range of functions!
After the gratis download of carus music, you will find a steadily growing number of works. You can buy the work with your choral part (soprano / alto / tenore / basso) by In-App purchase. After the download, your works will be available offline as well.

Useful app but turns off when display shuts off

I find Carus Music to be extremely useful for learning my choral parts, but I really wish developers would update a major flaw in this app:
On an iPhone, the music shuts off as soon as the display turns off. Since the longest time a display will stay on is 5 minutes (if not on permanently), the music constantly shuts off while I am in the middle of listening to it.
Please add the following features to correct this flaw and bring it up to the level of other music and podcast apps. Make it so:
1) app stays on (keeps playing music) even if display sleeps
2) app stays on in background (I.e., keeps playing music) even while looking at other apps
3) app has sleep timer to shut of the app after a specific number of minutes

These features would make this fantastic material so much easier to use. Thank you in advance for your consideration!

There are various problems with this app: scores don't match (Bach's Jesu meine Freude played something that was obviously someone else's Gloria), there are constantly "transmission problems" with the demo versions which don't download correctly, and, most annoyingly, when you buy the "hard copy", the printed version of the score from Carus Verlag, there doesn't seem to be a way to use the learning file - except if you buy it again. A good idea, badly executed.

Music stops when phone goes to sleep

A worthless tool until they allow the app to continue playing once the phone goes to sleep. Otherwise you have to sit and keep watching and tapping your phone to prevent the music from stopping. I honestly want my money back. You can get a better product for free from CyberBass. Caveat emptor!
