How do I download files?
If you find a listing for a piece (or a composer), then you only need to click on an icon or the name of a notation file in order to open the file. Every composer and composition page has a 'legend' which gives the most common icons used. If you click on a given icon, you will either open a PDF file, open a MIDI file, or be sent to an affiliated website which has the score that you want. You may need a software program. You also may need to save the file to your computer. The legend is shown below.
(IMPORTANT NOTE: Do NOT click on the icons in the red LEGEND box, instead click on icons to the right of the CPDL ID# in a score page or to the right of the the score title in a composer page. Clicking in the Legend box will merely send you to this help page.)
