I was  trying to solve a problem with a user instrument and slowed the play till I could detect what was happening on the staff.  
 Then I thought "what does it sound like with all instruments slow..?"  
I  found it quite pleasing, as though you were hearing bits that normally disappear in the rush of the music.  I wonder what speed they were originally played at.
 
BTW... no vsti's are used, just keyboard sounds , sound fonts and  a bit of HA 'user.'

Is that what you call "slow" ? The mp3 file seems to run at normal speed if I can still rely on my ears.

I thought it would just be slower, but not really slow.

My high school choir director in the 1970's (a graduate of the Boston Conservatory) told us that recent scholarship (from the 1960's) had demonstrated that Baroque and early Classical tempi were much slower than the tempi that had become customary during the 20th century.  I notice that since that time, tempi have gradually become faster and faster again.  I suppose that we need periodic reminders to slow down.
 
As a pianist and organist, I sometimes have to restrain myself, to avoid trying to show off by playing passages as fast as possible.  Fortunately, I am not a virtuoso!
 
The tempo in that MP3 file still sounds just a bit too fast, by the standards of my high school music teacher.
