Lemko songs in MIDI

The tserkva in Kotan' I have listed here a few Lemko songs as MIDI's (.MID format, GM standard).
Lyrics and notation for them you can find in Wojtek Chemijewski Songbook.

To properly reproduce these sounds you need any sound card in your PC
(any multimedia PC will have it).

The placement of vocal tones is based in general on songbook Śpiewnik z kożuchem (Warsaw, 1980-82).

The main purpose of this undertaking is not only to make it easier to sing these songs, but also to be able to learn the vocals, for those who cannot read sheet music.
