All midi files have the continuo playing from bar 7 and all files start on bar 1- so most files will have 7 bars of silence to begin with! This ensures that the same amount of time into each of the midi files represents the same point in the music.

Spem in Alium was written by Thomas Tallis (1505-1585), and probably first performed in 1570.

Sincere thanks from thousands of singers to David Siu who sequenced all the notes for these files- which are presented here with his permission. Click here to visit David's midi page.
