I love Shakespearean Music!

I do, too.

By the way, this music comes from the music that was written in the alchemical text of Atalanta Fugiens. (There are some fascinating illustrations in this book.) Atalanta Fugiens is supposed to be one of the first examples of multimedia known due to it having text, image and music in one piece of work.

I don't like to advertise anything commercial on this website but there is some interesting information regarding this work on the page linked below.

I am certain one could find all 50 images and music compositions by searching Google or YouTube.
