You can program your lyrics with this nifty plug-in program: Lyrical (by Astleigh of Landroval). It creates instant alias buttons for each line of lyrics, and you just click the button at the bottom of the window in time with the music you're playing to "sing". It's not completely automated, you do need to click the button for each line, but it makes singing very easy and fun!

Bandleader of Eriador Music Society, oldest cross-kinship music society, performing on both Elendilmir and Landroval. The Songbook of Laurelin: best resource of fully-tested ABC files for 1-14 players
Is this your site ? "The Songbook of Laurelin"
If so, please do update those zips there
Just downloaded songs for duet .zip and noticed that it has been updated @ 2009 :P
The site belongs to Makalaure of Laurelin/Landroval.
The Eriador Music Society of Elendilmir and Landroval (of which I am the Director and Miss Diamond is one of our Senior Bandleaders, and which Makalaure is also a founding member of) joined the website shortly after the creation of the website (in June of 2008) at Makalaure's invitation to use it as a repository for our members' ABC they've crafted and created, and which we fully test ingame each week, so that they can be shared with the LotRO music community at-large.
In the Spring of 2010, the Greenhill Music Society of Landroval (Under the Leadership of Falibrand of Landroval) also joined the site, for the same reason and also posts their Group's finished and fully tested songs there as well.
Since then we've also had many other associates, friends and musical allies join the site and post their fully tested songs there as well, utilizing the posting and ABC file standards we've created and as a group agreed to, to be used for this particular site.
In short, the Songbook of Laurelin has expanded and blossomed to the point, that, as you noted, Makalaure (who used to try to keep those ZIP files for each section current) could not keep up with the gargantuan task of keeping up with the volume of completed and fully ingame tested songs, being completed each week, by the two contributing Musical Societies, and the many other contributing members.
At present, I do have one member of The Eriador Music Society, who has stepped forward to volunteer to try to take on the HUGE task of attempting to play "catch-up", and begin the difficult task to bring those ZIP files into a reasonably current form, but this, at this point, is a task worthy of one of the 12 labors of Hercules, and will, naturally take some time to complete (read: "It ain't happenin' tomorrow ).
Until that task is complete...you basically have 2 choices:
1) Await patiently, until that task is complete, by the devoted and ambitious EMS member who volunteered to take on this monumental task.....which will surely take a L O N G time.......
2) Enjoy taking the time now, to explore the various forums in the "Songs from A to Z" forums, which is broken down by appropriate sections (Solo Songs, Duets, 3 Part Songs, etc.), or use the "Search feature" to look for particular songs you might be looking for.
Also, as Diamond pointed out, Astleigh's "Lyrical" LUA Plugin is a wonderful tool for accomplishing your desire to "Sing" with your songs.
