It certainly works over here (listening using WinAmp).
Where did you put your \midi{...} directive? Are you sure
that you included it in the \score{...}, example:
  \midi{\tempo 4=120}

Did you have any other \tempo directives in the different
voices of music or was this the only \tempo in the file?

Back in December 2002 Jule Slootbeek and Richard Grubb had a brief exchange
of emails regarding the difficulty of altering the tempo of MIDI file
output.  The conversation seemed to peter out without any resolution.

They were using Mac.  I am using Windows (Cygwin) and I am having the same
problems I have tried altering

\midi  { \tempo 4=120}

up to

\midi  { \tempo 4=240}

with no noticeable effect.  Is this a bug in Lilypond?  I have tried the
windows media player and WinAmp media player but both exhibit the same
problem. Has anyone any experience of this working on a Cygwin installation?
