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.
