Files "cleaned" Mar/15

Gerald Finzi

Intimations of Immortality

Here is a "clickable" Table of the available Midi Files for this Work
- it's been divided up into 4 parts (each ending in a convenient pause) and 13 main portions (corresponding to the tracks of the CD I listened to ... yours may be different), but the [Rehearsal Figures] correspond to those in the printed score:-

Remember:   the emphasized Files may not play properly with Windows Media Player
I recommend playing them with Session, but Chris Hills's MidiPlay is also good .
If you want a Player with PlayList facilities, I suggest either van Basco's or WinAmp .
If you're a Mac User ... you could perhaps try Roni Music's Sweet MIDI Player .
