(sonicArts) Listening List 1

The first listening quiz is September 6. Audio files can be downloaded here. (Note: you will need your BSU login and password to download the zipped folder of audio files from my iLocker account. The files are kept on a BSU server.)

You will be responsible for knowing the name of the composer, title, and year(s) composed. I will provide you with a list of each, but they will not be matched together (i.e., you will have a separate list of the composers, a separate list of the pieces, and a separate list of composition years).
