On the eve of the anniversary of Blessed Cardinal Newman’s birthday (February 21, 1801) we began a series of recordings of his Sermons Preached on Various Occasions.
Please share this series of audio recordings:

These are sermons that were preached by Blessed John Henry Newman as a priest. The first eight were preached at Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, the university church in Dublin (1856-1857).
This recording may be used for spiritual reading or for a time of spiritual reflection while walking, doing exercise, or sitting at home. The text is available at http://www.newmanreader.org/works/occasions/index.html
This series of sermons, to my knowledge, has not been previously recorded. This amateur recording is for the purpose of making the sermons available to listeners until they are recorded some day in the future by a professional.
Unlike homilies of today, the character of these sermons is intellectual and formal, and accordingly the tone of reading is serious and meditative.
