4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 3 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As you would expect, great intonation and perfect diction. I was particularly moved by the Robert Donat section at the end; it is a very intimate moment towards the end of his life and a reflection of what a great actor he was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Voices ReadPoetry 20 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Delightful selection of poetry read by familiar voices. I find it lovely to listen to in bed when sleep is not coming, and the CD switches itself off should I eventually fall asleep.

This was for a relative whose sight is diminishing. He loved reading but this is now virtually impossible. As he loves poetry this has made a lot of difference to his life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite Poetry 28 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
I bought this as a present for a friend. I understand he enjoys listening to it when relaxing and whilst lying in bed at night before going to sleep. He seems to be enjoying his present. Thank you.

A collection of well loved poetry read by some great voices. Unfortunately not all of them are great readers, but an excellent CD nonetheless.

The actual title of this CD is Favourite Poetry, and not Great Voices Read Poetry, which is the title of a completely different CD. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars soothing words
Purchased this mainly for Richard Burtons beautiful voice! It makes a change to listen to the words without any music.

4.0 out of 5 stars swift delivery, disappointing product
My main quibble with this CD is the 'overacting' of certain 'great voices' - particularly Ralph Richardson. I prefer poetry read by the poet who wrote it. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely voices
An excellent choice of well loved poems, brilliantly read by actors who can convey the feelings of the poetry., A pleasure to listen to.

I suppose I should have guessed by the date of the recordings that this would seem dated but I bought it on a whim to listen to in bed. Read more
