Welcome to the Shelf to Shul Project. Below you will find samples of
scanned pages and their associated MIDI files.
The idea of this project is to provide over the Internet as many scanned
pages of Jewish Liturgical Music as possible taken from sources around
the world together with, where available, MIDI files of the music to allow
you both to see the words and hear the music. Separate files will be made
available in the future of each of the parts (Soprano, Alto, Tenor and
Bass) so that you can print the music at home and give copies to your choir
members. You can also give/E-mail them their parts in a MIDI file to assist
If you can help convert music into MIDI files,
please get in touch.
Right now the only bottle-neck is funding!
For any further information contact Stephen Simpson
If you only have Windows95 and Paint (medium quality printing)
If you only have the Paint program that comes with Windows 95 (under
the "Accessories" folder), then download the files and view them with Paint.
To print the images, select "Image - Stretch/Skew" or press Ctrl+W from
the keyboard. First reduce 'horizontal' to 50% and click 'OK'. Then again
press Ctrl+W and now reduce 'vertical' to 50% and click 'OK' again. Save
the image now as a bitmap (.BMP - as the Windows 95 Paint will not 'save
as' pcx files). It will be a smaller file and the resolution will only
be of medium quality. However, you will now be able to print the music
on a regular A4 sheet.
If you have Windows95 and another proprietary viewing program
(high quality printing)
If you have Windows95 and some other picture viewing software, then
download the files and try to load them into your software. If your imaging
software cannot read .PCX files, then view the files using the Paint program
that comes with Windows 95 (under the "Accessories" folder) and simply
'save as' a .BMP file. Your imaging software should be able to read a .BMP
The resolution here will be excellent but you will probably
need to alter the picture size (from your imaging program) to suit the
paper size you use to print on.
If you have Windows 3.1
Download and save the files.
Run the Paintbrush program from "Accessories".
Load the file.
Select 'Print' from 'File' on the menu bar. The "Print" window opens.
Click on the box marked "Use printer Resolution". Click on 'OK'.
