The stock sounds that come with Timidity are missing a lot of
instruments (viola is missing also!). I suggest getting a soundfont
(Fluid GM soundfont works well) and using that with Timidity instead.
You just need to update your timidity config to use this. Are you
using Linux? Your distro may even have this soundfont available as a
package (Ubuntu Lucid does), it even provides a config file for
Timidity to use.
