Crescendo is a Plugin that allows you to receive High Quality Stereo MIDI music files. MIDI music files are digital music files that are read into a MIDI player on your PC and music is then generated by your sound card.   Crescendo is software that pops up a Crescendo MIDI player to control the music. You receive the MIDI file by "streaming" so that the audio plays while the PC is downloading the rest of the file. Because there is sometimes a problem with accessing the Crescendo home page, I have loaded the plug-in freeware onto this page.    Please feel free to download it, if you use a Netscape browser and cannot hear the music on these pages.   Good luck with it   : )))
