All of the scores in the Lead Belly songbook were created by files in Standard midi file format.
I recorded them, using Real Audio format. They are musically accurate to the nearest 1/32 of a beat. I used Cakewalk for sequencing, and Logic for publishing the scores. I played the Standard MIDI files for each song through a Roland Sound Canvas, trying to make the sounds suitable for education purposes over the internet using RealAudio.

As soon as the publisher, TRO/Folkways Music Publishers, NY, NY, and I reach an agreement, I will offer the Standard MIDI files for sale. Projected price is $25.00 for all thirty-two songs.
If you would like to know when these files will become available, please fill in below. I do not spam, or sell or use any information other than for the purposes of Harry Lewman Music sales.
