Musical MIDI Song Files
A list of the best web sites hosting MIDI files for songs from musicals, mostly free downloads.
You can turn any of these files into free sheet music with easy-to-use sheet music software.
Edwardian Musical Comedies - This site by Fraser Charlton has MIDI and karaoke files from Edwardian musical comedies. The files are grouped by show. Right-click the song name to download the file.
Musicals MIDI Files - This page of Schroder's Top Quality MIDI files contains a smattering of tunes from various musicals. They are arranged alphabetically by show, with the song tiles available under their respective shows. Right-click the song name to download the .mid file.
Midi Files From Popular Musicals - A collection of sequences for some popular tunes from musicals. Organized alphabetically by show name.
Gibert and Sullivan MIDI and Karaoke Page - This outstanding, extensive site contains a wealth of MIDI files of Gilbert and Sullivan music, maintained by Jim Farron, Archive Curator, and Alex Feldman, Webmaster. Explore the site to see the variety of musical offerings available. The complete "Web Operas" have MIDI files without the words included; you may minimize the score during playback in order to sing along using the lyrics on the web page. When you open a karaoke file (indicated by the .kar ending rather than the .mid of a MIDI file), you will see a pop up window that says "Preparing Sing-Along Part." At this point, choose OK to display just the melody line with lyrics or choose Cancel to display the full arrangement.
William Gilbert page at Classical Musical MIDI - This page has a nice biography of William Gilbert and some sequences of some of Gilbert and Sullivan's collaborative works.
Also see our Opera page.
With the shutdown of GeoCities, a number of excellent webpages which hosted MIDI files have been lost. If you know of the new location for a website that once was here, please let us know about it!
