It's buggy and I know of no fix.
http://www.mwscomp.com/sound.html and other places has some sound files so we can all sing along. I fancy the accountant's Shanty.
I've got Monty Python's Complete Waste of Time that was originally for Windows 95. It uses MIDI files to play sound. I'm trying to play it on Windows 2000, and I can't get the sound to work during the game. I've troubleshooted, and check my audio files. I have a soundmax digital audio. Any suggestions???
