The TEI SongBook

Unquestionably one of the high spots of the TEI 10th Anniversary Conference held at Brown University in 1997 was the lunchtime performance by Brown's very own Ursa Minors of a selection from the expanding TEI Songbook. Thanks to the miracles of modern technology, you can now hear that performance in the privacy of your own headphones, while at the same time reading the cool lyrics composed by Syd Bauman and Julia Flanders.

Oh, and if you feel that your own company song doesn't fit the needs of your workgroup and you want something more SGML- or XML-specific to sing each morning, check out Tony Graham's excellent SGML/XML songs page, which has transcripts of these songs and a whole lot more besides.
