This full-cast adaptation of Irving's classic story, about a persnickety schoolteacher's encounter with a spectral headless horseman, is clearly a labor of love. The music is excellent and mostly well placed, and sound effects are effectively done. Unfortunately, the acting doesn't always measure up. Lincoln Clark is good as Ichabod Crane, but most of the other players overact, those portraying Katrina and Brom all the time, the latter painfully. Even the narration is over the top, delivered in an affected, pseudo-cultured accent. Still, the program has some spooky effects and passages. It might serve best as an adjunct to the story in the classroom. W.M. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
