Songs of Karolan

Welcome! Since Karolan has not yet been published, I am making the songs available online as audio files. They really should be sung, but I... uh... have a problem with carrying tunes, so for now you will have to settle for the songs read aloud as poems. To make them accessible to as many people as possible, I have rendered each audio file in three different formats: .wma (the native format, quickest to download and probably best for PCs), mp3 (may be best for Macs and some PCs), and .au (may be best for linux/unix machines). Enjoy!
