To listen to these musical excerpts your web-browser will need Quicktime. If you do not see a playback panel underneath each example, or do not hear any sound you may need to install the latest version of Quicktime. You can download a free copy here: Get Quicktime
If you are still having problems, check if you are able to view Quicktime movies, like this one: Test movie 1 or this one Test movie 2.
If you are getting a picture, but no sound, you probably need to adjust the sound monitor on your computer. If you are getting a picture with sound, then the problem might be with your browser's plug-in. In that case try opening the soundfile directly with the alternate links provided below.
