The audio files we offer are all single MP3s, but the collections (Sonnets) are zipped into downloadable folders. Please first download the zip to your desktop, then double click to unzip and only then import into iTunes or similar media player. The full collection of Sonnets is relatively large at 140 Mb, please be patient when waiting for it to download. Alternatively download the individual files which will come through much more quickly.
Please check your junk mail folder for the notification email should it not arrive with 5 minutes of purchasing.
The King James Bible (1611)
The four hundredth anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible in 1611 motivated the question of how this text would have sounded in the early 1600s. The extracts here and on this page provide an illustration.

In the Beginning
Though I speak with the tongues
(Paul 1 Corinthians)
In the beginning was the Word
The Prodigal Son
The people that walked in darkness
To every thing there is a season
Out of the depths
The Lord is my shepherd
