      Glad to hear that you enjoyed yourself.

      The best place to start learning about early music on the web is the Early
      Music FAQ by Todd Michael McComb:

      http://www.medieval.org/emfaq/

      It is the web's largest reference for European Medieval and Renaissance
      music since 1994.  It includes CD listings, discussions of early music,
      overviews of the repertory, and all sorts of useful materials.

      When looking for Choral music, there's always the Choral Public Domain
      Library at:

      http://www.cpdl.org/

      This free sheet music archive is the largest website devoted exclusively to
      free choral sheet music. Begun in December 1998, the site has over 300
      contributors and 7,600 scores.  There's more than early music here, but
      don't worry, there's plenty of early music.

      An older resource if you just want to hear the tunes is the Internet
      Renaissance Band at:

      http://www.csupomona.edu/~jcclark/emusic/

      This hasn't been updated recently, but it is still a rich resource.  Early
      music midi files by Curtis Clark include Music of the Renaissance, MediƦval
      music, European carols: MediƦval, Renaissance, and traditional, and original
      compositions.

      Some early choral music can be found at Musica Viva, although it is not its
      mainstay:

      http://www.musicaviva.com/

      Musica Viva is another internet center for free sheet music downloads.
      Besides vocal, there's lots of stuff for instruments of various kinds.
      There's more here too: a directory that lists almost all other sites with
      free sheet music downloads on the internet, tons of midi files, a small
      encyclopedia of music - even a few general tips for web surfers.
