The Messe des pêcheurs de Villerville (Mass of the fishermen of Villerville) is a missa brevis written by Gabriel Fauré in collaboration with his former pupil Andr? Messager. A later version, published as "Messe basse", contained only movements composed by Faur?.
There are no text/lyrics; this 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 thanks to Jean-Francois Daussy, who lent me his NWC2 Files.
The Site 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 the Orquesta del Departamento de Musica de la Universidad de la Ciudad de Taipei, under Zhang Jiayu, on YouTube starting .
