POPULAR POETRY POPULAR VERSE

by | Read by Tony Britton, Jasper Britton, Emma Fielding

Poetry & Drama • 2.5 hrs. • Anthology • ©

Nearly 100 selections of poetry from well known poets spanning four centuries. The anthology is beautifully selected and documented and, as Naxos always does, punctuated with carefully chosen music. Father and son, Jasper and Tony Britton, use nicely complimenting, yet different styles for their narrations.They're joined by Emma Fielding. There's a great deal of variety here, from Robert Burns to Lewis Carroll, but each poet is given individual treatment. On CD, the tracks can each be accessed--a great improvement over the hit-or-miss search on cassette. The pacing, appropriate pauses between selections, mood changes signalled by the music----all contribute to a sterling collection. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR/APR 98]
