The Orfeo Midi Project

(Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococó)

Ave! This section will welcome every MIDI version of Early Music works. Notice that every and each MIDI file that appears here has been created by our members (The Orfeides). They can't be used in other sites unless the Author of each file agrees to. Feel free to download it for personal use ! Unfortunately, due to the huge amount of files offered, I have had to cut Steven's interesting remarks about each of them - hence, if you ever need any comment or information about the pieces, do not hesitate to write to the Moderator or to the Co-Moderator. We will be glad to inform you about them :)

For any other usage on other Sites please drop a line to The Moderator
