Rehearsal files for Dido and Æneas

The files are in rather long segments with the choral parts often in the middle of the sequence and rather difficult to find if you prefer not to have to listen to the whole thing every time you practise.

So I’ve located each of the choruses in their segment and labelled their times a little before they start.  The first number refers to the number of the segment on the webpage, the second number that in your score.
