    Mp3,AIFF and WAV Snippets of above tracks

    Note: In producing these track for distribution over the Web, I faced a trade off between sound quality (Sample rate and resoltion) and length of music snippet. In the end I went for length having slightly higher order than quality. All samples are 11 KHz, 16 bit samples. There is a slight degradation (ringing) to certain parts of the sound that is not present on the CD quality sound. The files are not compressed in any manner. If you encounter problems or have advice as to how to deliver these better, I would be glad to hear from you. Comments on the Music are also welcome.
