Dagstuhl ChoirSet is a multitrack dataset of a cappella choral music designed to support MIR research on choral singing. The dataset includes recordings of an amateur vocal ensemble performing two choir pieces in full choir and quartet settings. The audio data was recorded during an MIR seminar at Schloss Dagstuhl using different close-up microphones to capture the individual singers’ voices.
