VOICES OF HISTORY 2 Arts, Science & Exploration

by | Read by Various Narrators

History • 2.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2005

These historic recordings from the British Library Sound Archive were chosen with the utmost care, not only for who the speakers were, but also for what they said. To hear the voices of P.T. Barnum, Sarah Bernhardt, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Lindbergh, Howard Carter, Sigmund Freud, and Albert Einstein, among others, would be enough, but the words in this volume are often nothing less than inspiring. From the earliest recordings of the 1890s to 1930s-40s radio broadcasts, one can hear stylistic changes from pre-amplified orations to the more intimate sounds of one-on-one fireside chats. A well-written and informative booklet provides transcripts of some of the harder-to-understand recordings. Utterly fascinating. B.P. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
