Parry / Howells MIDI Files


Hi all,

I've been looking for MIDI files of the following to no avail:

Fantasia and Fugue in G - Parry
Rhapsody in C# Minor - Howells

Unfortunately, both are beyond my playing ability right now, but I would love to try them with my Hybrid Cathedral Organ custom instrument.

If anyone more skilful than I could record these as MIDI files, I would be incredibly grateful.

RE: Parry / Howells MIDI Files

Herbert Howells died in 1983. His music is not public domain. As to Parry some of his music is but you need to look that up. ISMLP is a good place to look as sometimes there are midi files attached there. But don’t expect to find Herbert Howells on his composer page there because there is a warning on the page that anyone who publishes works by this composer will be taken down immediately. Do what I did. Add selected work to your Amazon wish list ie the book. Leave it a few weeks and the price normally drops if they can’t shift it. When that happens I wait until it plateaus and then purchase. Also eBay is a good place for second hand music. Sorry I can’t help with copyrighted music.

Many thanks - I must admit. I hadn't realised that Howell's work was still under copyright.

I will check out ISMLP for the MIDI files. Thanks again.
