Shakespeare Done Right

If you could sum up Shakespeare's Original Pronunciation in three words, what would they be?

Enjoyable, Well Done

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

The various narrators did a good job of acting as they recited the lines. You can almost picture them on stage.

Any additional comments?

Even if you are not interested in the original pronunciation, these are particularly well done and enjoyable to listen to.

I want more of this!

I've spent many hours reading material printed around 1600 and those works have come to mean a lot to me. The spellings make more sense now.

I would LOVE to have more of this. Whole plays, all the sonnets. Hell, there was a ton of literature printed at the time. They could read recipe books or a treatise on farming and I'd listen to the whole thing.

I hope to eventually hear OP in my head when I read Elizabethan and early Jacobean literature.

decent but very short, also no materials

Quite pricy for what its really is, explanations on the phonetics would had added a lot of value in my oppinion.
