I have had a lot of success in downloading MIDI files off various sites and transcribing them for my quintet etc. However, most MIDI files contain only notes and no dynamic markings etc. Furthermore, to print them out, you'll need to purchase a MIDI sequencer/scoring program and set all the notes out. The notation quality and capabilities of most shareware sequencers is questionable and commerical music software can be very expensive. Finally, the time that is involved in setting out a neat musical score (even on a computer) is extremely time consuming.

A final word of warning, most music written this century is not in the public domain which means, it is a copyright infringment if you download these pieces. BEWARE!
