The British Library releases audio archives:
Live sound recordings of Paul Robeson and Florence Nightingale

The British Library is releasing a ton of audio archive to educational institutions in the UK.

Examples of the library's site include a live recording of Paul Robeson in Othello, Florence Nightingale speaking in one of the earliest sound recordings, as well as the genesis of Sherlock Holmes.

These historic recordings will be made freely available to further and higher education institutions and will include a wide range of materials, including classical and popular music, broadcast radio, oral history, and field and location recordings of traditional music.
