Help for the other works is rather more difficult to find online. There are two sites where you can download and play 'MIDI' files, but beware that these are less of an option for iPad users than they are for those using Windows.

Here are links to YouTube performances:

- Tomas Luis de Victoria (1548-1611), O Quam Gloriosum
- Thomas Tallis (1505-1585), Hear the Voice and Prayer
