Audio Samples

Listen to audio samples from P.D.Q. Bach and Peter Schickele:  The Jekyll and Hyde Tour.  As befits the massive bigness and dual-personality-ness of this recording, there are two different Hearer’s Digest Condensed Version samples from this CD, one for the Jekyll half of the show, and one for the Hyde part, though it is still far from clear which half is the Jekyll and which other half is the Hyde.
