These original descants by Jeff Whitmill are offered for your use, free of charge. Everything is listed here; if you need to do a search, please use your browser's FIND function (CTRL-F or CMD-F).

If what you want isn't here, please drop a line to me here: jeff@whitmill.net. I might be able to come up with something for you. Please note, however, that bulk requests - more than one descant at a time - tend to make me less interested in pursuing the project. I have a day job. And a night one.

But if you send me a single request, I probably will see it as an interesting challenge.

Just click on the title to get to the PDFs of the descants listed below.

Enjoy!
