Re: Singing repositories available & bit depth/sample rate advices

Not sure about your description of "a cappella".  Yes, it is singing unaccompanied; however, your follow up that they "can hear what is supposed to be sung BEFORE they actually do it"?  This sounds like 'sight reading', i.e., the ability to sing the notes of a song whilst reading the notes for the first time.  This is entirely possible in singers with excellent relative, or even better, absolute pitch, but I'm pretty sure this is not what you're referring to?
