Unlike my usual stuff, these Files were generated for printing purposes (but are only a preliminary version!), and so may not play perfectly (even though they should sound reasonable - though that depends very much on your hardware/software; mine is a Soundblaster AWE64 Gold).
My Website (above) also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
