Basque Score collection

Jo Maris

The composer and musician Jo Maris wanted to make a series of Basque music scores available to the public on the Basque culture portal website, managed by the Basque Cultural Institute.

Each MIDI file contains, amongst other things, data on each of the notes to be played (duration, volume, key, channel number, speed, etc). A MIDI file is in fact a digital representation of musical scores. It can also be used with specialist musical software (sheet music editors ...)

The source files of compositions and arrangements have been created using Sibelius © composition software. The composer has also made these available to the public. They can be opened using Sibelius © software.

Terms of use

"To all choir directors: I would be greatly honoured if you would use these scores. Other songs will gradually be added over time. Please respect the way these harmonisations are written in so far as they have no "false notes" and declare them to the SACEM if necessary.
Thank you to everyone who has helped making these scores available on line, especially to Christian Etchegoyen and the Basque Cultural Institute.
Happy listening!".
