Some music - John N MacNeill

This website is primarily for people involved with music-making. That is its excuse for not being flashy.
All of the music can be heard via demo audio files (computer-generated - not played by real musicians) that can be downloaded free.
For the jazz-orchestra pieces, parts may be available on request. For the rest of the music in this website, sheet music is available for display and for free download.


Somewhat Celtic song-tunes with words in Gaelic / English / both languages.

Hymns and the like, mostly in four-part harmony.

Simple trumpet pieces with piano accompaniment.

A choral love-song.

Pieces for jazz orchestra.
