We just finished a holiday “text to sing” program for Yahoo! Messenger where I work, Colle+McVoy, in Minneapolis. Here’s an open source themed maker’s carol for you all.

If you want to create text-to-speech music yourself, check out the Festival project. It includes a singing mode which uses XML to describe the pitch and duration values for the syllables in your song.
