Jon, I found that link several years ago. As a matter of fact I found a few typos and wrote to John Roache. I also asked him for permission to use one of his midis on my pages. He was very gracious when he wrote back. I was sorry to hear that he died shortly after that.

Those midis and several I found at a piano site are made from input on a very good keyboard -- and by fantastic piano players! They can input all kinds of nuances which is extremely difficult to do by manipulating the midi event list -- things like subtleties in the rhythm and loud/soft, balance between the voices, phrasing, etc.
