Welcome to Wikichorus, the open sol-fa songbook

Wikichorus is a community-maintained collection of song sheets in sol-fa notation that anyone can contribute to. It is intended to be both a written record of cherished choruses in an easy-to-read format and an audio record of the same so they can be interpreted accurately.

Contributing to Wikichorus

You can contribute to wikichorus in a few ways: New song sheets, versions, lyrics, vocals and medleys.

New song sheets

For uniformity, all song sheets are formatted using sol2snd formatter. Songs can be edited in sol2snd sol-fa shorthand. To add a song sheet click 'Add song' in the left pane.

Versions

Songs evolve and contributors may know the same song with slight variations. To depict this reality wikichorus allows versions. You can add a version from scratch or start with a copy of an existing one.

Lyrics

Unlike the tune, the lyrics of a song can be edited by anyone. You can add lyrics or correct existing ones.

Vocals

Wikichorus initially sequences the tune so its music can be heard. But to truly hear the song with words wikichorus needs vocals. Anyone can submit a recording of the vocal performance of one voice part. Submitting a single voice part helps learners filter out the part they are learning. However the separate parts can always be heard together. Vocals have another use on wikichorus: Suggesting songs. If you suggest a song to be included in wikichorus, it is helpful for the contributors to hear it.

Medleys

To suggest a medley simply select and order the song titles of the songs in the medley and add its suggested uses.
