Audio Examples (out of print CDs, free CDs. previews and original sound files)
The faster your connection, the better!

Many of the these CDs are out of print. For in print CDs only some of the songs are available for downloading. Original sound files not available on any CD will be here for downloading soon, including some live concerts & workshops. I now have a better Mp3 encoding program so I will redo many of the files below with higher quality and without some of the strange song endings that my previous program imposed on the encoding process. Thanks for your interest in this music.
