Listen with Real Audio!

The Real Audio version is divided into three parts for quicker loading. However, it will go from segment to segment automatically at the proper time, once the audio is started. The Windows Media version is also divided into three parts. However, you will need to start each segment manually. In our opinion, the Real Audio is of slightly higher quality.

Listen to Part One with Windows Media!
Listen to Part Two with Windows Media!
Listen to Part Three with Windows Media!
