It's a cheesy midi, but a beautiful tune on this site. What is it?

That is a Dutch tune, 18th C., called 'In Babilone.' It has been borrowed for quite a few hymns.

Yes, it is. I like to play it on my fretted dulcimer.

If you like that one, you might like a hymn tune called Hyfrydol. It too has a lilt to it. It's Welsh, 19th C, I think.

You can find hymn tunes by their tune name at the Cyberhymnal. I suspect the MIDI you heard at the Cooley site came from the Cyberhymnal. It just sounds like how they do it.

Leeneia did well to recognize it through all the cheese. A bit simpler:

And another version. (For the most part Mortier plagiarized Roger, but not here).
