Well, since one of your e-ddresses is at let's make it easy.
Try this:

Walk across campus to the School of Music, go into their library, look up
"Gyuto Monks" (ask the librarian if you need assistance, it's probably
filed under Ethnic, Tibetan), check out the CD, go home, sit back, relax,
have a cup of tea (of whatever your ritual for winding down at the end of
the day is), lower the lights and play the CD

This will not produce as profound an effect as seeing them would have, but
at least you'll be able to post in future from your experience rather than
from incredulity.
