On this thread 'Recognising The Sound Of Different Chords' , on the page overleaf, some people suggested a couple of websites that help specifically for this, and I noticed they also contained recognition of scale forms, and intervals.
I was owndering if anyone knew of anything similar that might be of more assisstance with those dreaded grade 8 aurals, as not being able to find anyone who can play the piano exaples in the AB aural test book, I'm finding the cd just can't provide enough examples to allow me even to get the gist of things!
So does anyone know of a site that plays chord progressions and cadences, and modulations, or even miraculously can help with sight singing and the memory test, or even test D too?!
Please say yes... please...

Don't know of websites, but there's a cassette called "Sound Wise" Aural Test Cassette Grade 8 which may still be available in shops or a website, which is full of examples for the aural test, on both sides of the cassette. It was compiled by Gillian Spragg.

The "earmaster pro" free 28 day demo (find it on google) has a very comprehensive section on chord progressions, with 20 levels of exercise from "V-I" or "V-i" at level 1 to some very exotic progressions at level 20 - it plays a chord progression, and gives you "multiple choice" buttons of what the progression was. If you press one of the buttons it plays the chord progression on that button and you can compare it with the test question, and if it's the same, submit it as your answer. It's very user friendly.
I'm afraid it doesn't have sight singing (although it does has musical dictation), nor does it have modulations.

I've never used it - but this program claims to teach sight-singing and can be used 10 times for free.
