Flemish Virginals

English Bentside Spinet

Wonderful news!  We have expanded our collection of sound samples - and we think we've found a better way to let you hear our instruments' sounds.  In each case, we now offer you a choice of a long or short file.  If you have a fast connection (cable, DSL, T1), download the long file.  We have chosen pieces that are no longer than a minute and encoded them as 192 kbps MP3 files (file size =<1.3Mb).  If you don't mind waiting a couple of minutes, they can be successfully transferred and played over a 56k dial-up connection.  If you do have a slower connection, we also provide short files (average length 15 seconds) encoded at the same rate (file size =<380Kb).  These are generally the opening section of the longer file.  No matter which file size you choose to listen to, the fidelity will still be the same.  The short files just contain a lot less to download.
