Click on the title of any song to hear the song and see the arrangement.
I am providing for computers, tablets or phones that can't play the midi files.

Note: The Mp3 files are recordings of my "midi" files.
I created them for people or systems that can't play the midis.
Midi files are much smaller and easier to "manipulate".

"Manipulate" Midi file tracks

1. It is very easy to change the key.
2. It is very easy to change the instrumentation (any track).
3. It is very easy to change the tempo, any where in the song.
4. It is very easy to add or copy tracks, change the channel and the instrumnent.
5. It is very easy to "mute" the vocal track so you can sing
the part and have instrumental, or vocal background.
So just by "fooling around", you can take one of these
songs and re-create the brass or even turn it into a symphony
orchestra. When I finish all of the tunes, I will create some examples.
I already have some on the web site.
(.) ^ (.) around.
Try doing any of the above with an MP3, ... Lottsa' Luck!


My experience with windows 10, and some other operating systems, is limited.
Browsers: I have found that "Internet Explorer" will play midi files.

If you don't recognize the tune, most of the songs have
both the verse and the chorus. Please be patient.

Midi The Yellow Rose Of Texas

(Piano / Vocal) (c) 1858 by Firth Pend & Co.

This historic sheet music has one chorus scored for piano and vocal.
Pages scored for four part choir and piano.
And pages for extra verse and chorus.

I have censored (redacted?) the lyric.The original words might be offensive to some.
I had second thoughts about posting this song but it is in the book.
If you object, let me know and I will remove this song from this list.
