MUSIC is the most ROMANTIC of all the ARTS - one might almost say, the only genuinely romantic one - for its sole subject is the INFINITE. Music discloses to man an unknown realm, a world in which he leaves behind him all definite feelings to surrender himself to an inexpressible longing.
-- Hoffmann, Ernst Theodor Wilhelm (Amadeus)

REAL LIFE ADVENTURES: 'The opera has ended.  Please restore your husbands to their full, upright and locked positions'. Opera for Ninnies...that would be me

Comprehensive Classical MIDI collection with large file size

Basic selections of Classical MIDI with reasonable file size from Temple Magnet School whose Bethune program espouses: "As part of our activity classes, each Bethune student is fortunate enough to receive daily instruction in Music. The foundation is critical; the learning in this classes supports all other academic classes as the skills from math, science, social studies, and language arts culminate in this class for total application." Good for them!
