The link to the text here is dead:
https://librivox.org/the-defense-of-the-augsburg-confession-by-philip-melanchthon/
and should point intstead to here:
https://bookofconcord.org/power-and-primacy-of-the-pope/

The same here:
https://librivox.org/a-treatise-on-the-power-and-primacy-of-the-pope-by-philip-melanchthon/
Link:
https://bookofconcord.org/power-and-primacy-of-the-pope/

I wonder if it's risky to link to a website that may redesign their website in such a way that the links change (as seems to have happened in this case).

Here's a PG link to the second one which I believe is an identical text (though I haven't checked more than a paragraph): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/6744

Oops, very sorry (my fault), the two links are identical. The first link should be to https://bookofconcord.org/apology-of-the-augsburg-confession/

Can't argue with you there. You may have noticed that both of these recordings were done back in 2011. Over the years, we've become a bit more picky, ahem, I mean careful, about which text sources we're willing to use, for this reason and others. I doubt whether this website would be accepted for a recording today, although another MC might be willing to accept it for reasons that I'm not seeing. 8-)
