I give here a few thingies I have made using that excellent program MED. Because
I have a classical education (I am a musicology student) there are only
classical pieces in it.
I will give some extra information on all four of them:

1. ElGril.smp (El Grillo (=The Cricket))
   This is a piece by the Dutch(!) composer Josquin des Prez (ca. 1440-1521).
   It is made in honour of a king. The underlying text is:
   

   "El Grillo e buon cantore" (The Cricket is a good singer)
  
   The Cricket in this case is off course the king.
   The musical form is a frottola. A characteristic of a frottola (pl. frottole)
is the burden    at the beginning and the end. A frottola is always secular.

2. menuet.smp    This is from the suite in B-flat major by J.S. Bach
(1685-1750). There is not really much    to tell about this piece. (I left the
Trio-section out).

3. mmenuet.smp    Another menuet bij Joseph Rheinsbuerger (1674-1729) (That's
what it says in the sheet music)
   The key is G-minor.
4. VHH.smp    This is the christmas song "Von Himmel hoch" arranged for
unaccompanied choir by J.S. Bach. It is supplied with    the Magnificat. Note
the long notes of the song above a very contrapuntal and mobile background. It
is (I think) one    of his masterpieces but unfortunately virtually unknown.
5. couperin2.smp    This is rondeau by Fr. Couperin, the famous 18th century
harpsichord player. It is typically    French because it is witty and
light-footed. Musique c'est pour faire plaisir. This attitude towards music, by
the way,    has always been there in the French music up to the first halve of
the twentieth century. Messiaen could be said the first not    to have this
attitude (His music and that of Boulez is totally ugly).

The files with the extension *.smp are complete songs. (smp just means I've used
samples).
The file couperin2.smp needs OctaMEDPlayer, all other files only need
MEDPlayer.
If you have any suggestions or good (I mean good more than 1 octave) samples
please mail to the address mentioned below or write to me personnally.
