|Full name of work:||Ave Maria (1484)|
|Composer:||DesPres, Josquin (circa 1440-1521), Flemish|
|Music category:||A cappella Motet|

|Comments:||There are no text/lyrics; the File was generated purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes (using a published piano-reduction Score), and so doesn't look pretty even though it should sound reasonable (though that depends very much on your hardware/software; mine is a Soundblaster AWE64 Gold).|
Voice-emphasised Midi Files of the whole work can be downloaded for free from my Website (above). My Website also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
There is an excellent performance of this Work by Peter Phillips & The Tallis Scholars on YouTube starting at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxLv2pPiQVI.
