Excellent rendition of a classic

This had everything I was after. Being a classic, well studied at school it brought back all of the reminscences. I was hanging off the words and reflecting how different the meaning is now, later in life.<br/>The readers were excellent <br/>I will listen to this many times (something I rarely do)<br/><br/>
