Although the 21 books of Caxton's edition have been simplified to five, the actual text is Malory's. His famous work--like all great epics--dramatizes the dignity of noble men and women in the face of impending doom. Happily, in this case, the lofty message is accompanied by high adventure and romance, and Philip Madoc plays up both in his exciting narration. Revealing his Shakespearean training, his commanding performance is even more effective with the addition of Gregorian chants and medieval carols at the most dramatic moments. The sound reproduction is outstanding throughout. J.C. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 95]
