Yeah, the demoscene and standalone stuff I've found is generally better than most in-game music I've heard. So here's this: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/544 ... riumph.mp3
Made with that Note tracker thingy.

Very nice use of the OPL3 capabilities there. Got that nice mellow sound.
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.

Seconded. Very relevant link:

A lot of the suggestions here are written for and sound better on other hardware (MT32 or Sound Canvas). Tyrian is written for FM Synth first and foremost, and sounds GREAT.

Not a DOS game but a PC-98 one, but the soundtrack of YU-NO by Ryu Umemoto (with contributions from Ryu Takami and Kazuhiro Kanae) has not only great FM instrument synthesis but is also one of the very best videogame soundtracks I've ever heard, period.

Sword Cape
Suspicion 2
The Departed

The full soundtrack lasts about 5 hours. I haven't listened much of them yet but Umemoto's other soundtracks such as Eve: Burst Error and Xenon sound promising from the few tracks I've heard.

Some great OPL ones are Princess Maker 2 (mentioned already though) Warcraft, and Wolf.

Personally, I absolutely love the sound tracks from Sky Roads https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPYMwtjTC0c. So much so that I actually put quite a few on an MP3 player. Ive also liked the Lotus III music, especially main theme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rd4K-3KyEQc.
