You can play your downloaded track by double clicking on the downloaded file which should open your media player and play your track. Q. What if I can’t download at all?
We still release all of our repertoire on CD, so by all means request a copy. Or, if you have a large requirement for music but have technical limitations imposed at your place of work, talk to us about alternative solutions such as DVD or local servers. Q. How is the music catalogued on this site?
In two main ways. You can simply browse the individual libraries chronologically, as though you had the CDs on the shelf. Or you can search all the libraries based on the criteria you select. You can then choose to view all the results that meet your criteria, or our recommended highlights, or by your favourite library. Q. What if I’m not based in Germany/Switzerland/Austria?
