Tunes by William Billings

So I don't lose them, here is a collection of MIDI sequences of tunes by William Billings. These have a very Renaissance sound to them, more than the electric-piano tone I usually find in MIDI files.

There are several articles and comments about Billings himself at the top of the page, but persevere, the MIDI links are about half way down.

Here is Is Any Afflicted? in MIDI. The Choral Public Domain Library has the pdf version for singing parts but I don't have time to look them up for a link this evening.

You can also hear a few of his works sung by His Majestie's Clerkes (now Belle Voce) at The Art of the States website.
