Thanks to all who replied to the question I posted about making audio available on a site. I'm not sure I understood each of the solutions you presented, but I do have some stuff to try and to work with and -- maybe just as importantly -- if (when) I get stuck later down the road, I've a better idea of the right questions to ask! This list is a great resource.

Just as a (graphic) designer or photographer's website may just have the odd image or two. Balance the needs of availability and experience. If you do it via a Flash player, or any other means, also offer a 'offline' download option. But don't feel that such options must be avoided like the plague, either.
