Canticle of the Sun

If you know of a Website from which can freely and lawfully be downloaded a printable Vocal score for this Work, even though it may not be exactly the same as the one used to make the Midi Files below, please let me know the address.

There is an excellent performance of this Work by the Capitol Hill Choral Society on YouTube starting here.

Here is a "clickable" Table of the available Midi Files for this Work.

These Midis can be played either using a conventional Midi Player, such as Chris Hills's MidiPlay or the Windows Media Player, or using the rather different Choral Music Tutor, which is a web app that plays MIDI files. Choral Music Tutor runs on any device - any Desktop PC (Windows or Mac), Tablet (Android or iPad) or Smartphone (Android or iPhone) - that can browse the internet. It is not an app that you have to download or install. There is more information about playing MIDI Files here.
