How to listen

All audio files are in mp3 format. The easiest way to listen is to use the audio player in the browser of your computer or mobile device.

Alternatively, you can download the files, but be aware they may be quite large (between 100 and 200 MB). To download and listen to a file on an iOS device such as an iPhone, you will likely need to download the file to your computer first, then use iTunes to move it to your device.
