I've found a web service called SinSy that is similar to the well known
Singing Computer[1]. SinSy stands for Singing Synthesis. It also works
using the MusicXML format. Some sample songs are at [2]. I've found out
that there is a program called vConnect-STAND that is also able to
synthesize singing voice[3,4]. It is free sofware under the GPL v3.
Maybe it should be worth to debian-package vConnect-STAND and write an
integration for v.Connect-STAND for BMC.
