The Declaration of Independence gets a stirring reading from Frank Langella, one that brings alive all the emotions our Founding Fathers must have felt when breaking free of England. Boyd Gaines's reading of the Constitution doesn't fare as well, despite his efforts to give it a thoughtful reading that gives listeners plenty of time to ponder its points. It sounds like Gaines is reading a document that just wasn't meant to be read aloud. While important, the passage on the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court is almost guaranteed to bring yawns. At 48 minutes, the disc falls short of the hour promised on the package. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
