If you have a recording of an excerpt that you would like to see on hornexcerpts.org, please drop me a message and I'll send instructions how to submit it.

Playback of the audio files on this site requires an mp3 browser plug-in. These plug-ins come preinstalled on most computers, but if you find the audio links don’t work I suggest downloading the most recent version of QuickTime Player (Mac/Windows) or Windows Media Player (Windows).

A broadband internet connection (cable, DSL, etc.) is recommended. Audio files will load extremely slow with a dial-up connection. If you can only play the the first few seconds of a sound file it is probably because the rest of the file hasn't loaded yet. Most plug-ins have a progress progress bar showing how much of the file has been downloaded.

Some of the audio files are recorded at low volume levels. It may be necessary to increase the volume setting on your computer or speakers.
