Music Using SBFMDRV.COM

I am beginning to create some games in C.  I need to know how to use the SBFMDRV.COM which comes with Sound Blaster and compatibles to play music.  For me to accept an answer I need a library of functions for loading in MIDI or other musical files that SBFMDRV.COM can read.  I also need the library to include functions for playing the music (it must work in the background).

Thank you

Is there a reason for not using Windows? Windows already has all of the capabilities you're looking for and makes it relatively easy.

I am writing software for DOS because I do not want to get into C++ at this point.  Windows and C do not mix that well...
