As long as the epic voice of 80-year-old British actor Brian Blessed (STAR WARS I, THE PHANTOM MENACE) is narrating, England will always sound like a wonderfully courageous and magical land. In this tale written in 1886 by popular nineteenth-century children's author G.A. Henty, it's 868 AD, and a young, untested King Alfred must find a way to eject the powerful invading Vikings from his beloved home. With compelling music; growling, bass-voiced villains; and plenty of battleground shouts and screams, Alfred invents new weapons and struggles to unite his people under the Christian God. Heirloom Audio is a faith-based production company, so listeners shouldn't be surprised to hear a number of moral lessons gently sprinkled throughout.
