When Love Speaks

Oooooo, want this. When Love Speaks is a CD of celebrities doing performances of Shakespeare sonnets and other famous works by you know who. The sample included in this all-flash site is Alan Rickman doing Sonnet 130 ("My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun..."), but the CD also contains Richard Attenborough doing #17 ("Who will believe my verse in time to come...") which I recited at my wedding, and Joseph Fiennes doing "Our revels now are ended..." from The Tempest.

I immediately purchased that from the site. Great post. I like that it builds to an ending taken from my favorite play.

I just got my copy in the mail Wednesday. It's very interesting. I don't care for most of the "songs", but the sonnet readings are really great (except for maybe 2 that I have reservations about).
