Saul - Part 1

Part 2 is on the next page,
Part 3 the following page.

Here is a "clickable" Table of the available Midi Files for this Work:-

Numbers 8, 9, 13-17, 32, 36 & 39 are not included in the standard Novello score, and were - on this page - originally marked "Not available". Most have now been entered from the Kalmus miniature Orchestral Score - thanks, Margaret! - but Nos 14, 15 & 39 are still unavailable (though possibly 13 - 17 are all "combined, and 39 is the "allegro" second-half of 38).

Remember:   the emphasized Files may not play properly with Windows Media Player
I recommend playing them with Session, but Chris Hills's MidiPlay is also good .
If you want a Player with PlayList facilities, I suggest either van Basco's or WinAmp .
