Very appreciated, Tantris. I´ve had problems decompressing the last two zip files. I´ve tried it twice and the same problem persist; is it just on my side?
In any case, thanks a lot to you and to all the posters here for the beauties you´re sharing. We must support musicians whenever or however we could.
I wish Inconstant sol a Happy 2017!!

Hello armando - I''ve checked the files and they look OK to me - let me know if the problem persists.

Hi, I have tried this with two different unzip programs. They both refuse to finish the set, saying that file part 10 is incomplete and file part 11 is missing (according to the header inside file 1). I've re-downloaded #10 several times, but still no luck. Could you please check again, or generate another set? Thanks!
