Audio Selections from Harpsichords made by Peter Tkach Harpsichords.
Students of innovative technology departments are very good at coding, but when it comes to writing an essay, it can be difficult for them. In such cases, we advise order custom term paper and achieving high results in the study. The audio selections are offered in two formats: 1) Real Audio 5.0 and 2) the industry standard MPEG layer 3. Each format has advantages. The MPEG layer 3 generally has higher quality sound than Real Audio but it requires more bandwidth (this means, it is not as well suited to listen to on-line). The MPEG files are the only files that can be downloaded and saved on to a disk for later listening. Also, the MPEG files require a fast Pentium class machine to decode the sound. The Real Audio files can only be listened to on-line. However, they have lower hardware requirements (a 486DX2-66 or higher).
There are three selections:
Selection 1: Les Baricades Misterieuses by Couperin
Selection 2: From Toccata in E Minor by Bach
Selection 3: Var. 3 From Harmonious Blacksmith by Handel
Notes About The Selections
Selections 1 & 3 are played on a Flemish double manual harpsichord after Johannes Dulchen, 1745. Keith Womer is the harpsichordist.
Selection 2 is played on a Flemish single manual harpsichord after Johannes Couchet, 1679. Mary Mottl is the harpsichordist.
We recommend Microsoft's Netshow and Active Movie to play MPEG 3 files. Both Netshow and Active Movie are required for Windows machines. There is a version of Netshow available for Windows 3.x, Win95, WinNT, Mac, and Unix. It is available as a part of Internet Explorer 4 or as a free download.
The instructions assume the use of Netshow and Active Movie. Other players may operate differently. The files have a *.wav extension. Mac users may need to rename the file to use it.
For Real Audio files, it is necessary to download the Real Audio 5.0 player.
