Subject: To CD Or Not CD
In Wednesday's Washington Post, Mark Jenkins reviews "Be Thou Now
in a Shakespearean World," a six CD compilation (Page C05). You can find
the article on-line at
Here is the first paragraph:
"All the recorded world's a staging ground for CD reissues, but the
latest task undertaken by Rhino Wordbeat is daunting: "Be Thou Now
Persuaded: Living in a Shakespearean World" is a six-CD introduction to
Shakespeare, which is not quite the same sort of thing as Night
Nightlife Ranger's greatest hits. The
result is something much less than the complete works, but more than an
audio compilation of the Bard's best-known phrases."
