With a graceful precision, John Lee offers an eloquent performance of an engrossing story--that of Michelangelo and the events surrounding the painting of the Sistine Chapel. The story is complex, full of human drama and political intrigue. Lee's genteel voice leads the listener through the action flawlessly, offering skillful pronunciations of the glorious Italian names and presenting the information clearly. Lee's voice resonates with a capable efficiency and deep timbre that is pleasant to the ear. With a brisk pace and an appropriate sense of energy, this nonfiction production unfolds like fiction, immersing the listener in the passionate times of the Italian Renaissance.
