I love reading this and reciting snippets of ∆nglisc. It's a great experience to be able to connect to your roots; especially given how pure and advanced the spelling system was at this stage in the language, and before it was littered with Romance terms and Norman borrowings.
However, I find it disappointing that the pronunciation of the ∆nglisc is very modernised. The speakers even use a non-rhotic accent, giving you additional need to build your own pronunciation system as you can't adopt the speaker's (the evils of learning long dead dialects).
But it is fun, and very interesting.
