Credits and copyright

I've made up most of the MIDI files, excepted a very few of them which are mentionned with their author's contribution.
I'm happy to make my little music available, but it doesn't mean that I renounce to be the author: Copyright (C) Alain Naigeon, 1996 - 2007.
Every public site is bound to respect copyright rules, even when it has no commercial purpose. Therefore I'll carefully consider any comment or request about pictures or short quotes, though, hopefully, they will be understood as advertisements rather than unfair duplications.

Special thanks to MEDIEVAL.ORG who honour me by hosting a mirror site from now on!
(here it is)
Their site is a must for anybody interested in early music
(definitions, advices, discography, articles, and links!)

And here are four more sites specially dedicated to the Renaissance:
David Kettlewell's new renaissance
             L'édition musicale à la renaissance (in French)
Goldberg foundation

And don't forget to have fun browsing the site of the month!
