The 150 Psalms contain some of the most inspiring lines in the Old Testament: Psalm 23 The Lord is My Shepherd and Psalm 121 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills. Yet few know them as a set, and this recording, in Alex Jennings' clear performance, allows us to consider them as a whole. They are not all uplifting and comfortable. Many involve darker sentiments of revenge or punishment; many appear to be by David or about David; others are To the chief Musician upon Gittith. Their variety is part of their strength and their power, especially in the magisterial language of the King James Bible used here. They are presented with English choral music from the 16th and 17th centuries. Download and start listening now!

    " well done. comfort, challenge, and saving grace. meeting myself (and others) going in and coming out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steff | 5/23/2011

    " It was good. It was a side of Shakespeare that I haven't seen much of because in class we only read his tragedies. I had to write a ten page paper on it though so that kind of ruined the experience for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 5/20/2011

    " Possibly my favorite Shakespeare comedy.

    Also, it has a special place in my heart because my fifth-grade class performed it in the original language, and I was a little cross-cast Gonzalo, and it was epic. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sam | 5/16/2011

    " To me, it felt like Shakespeare gave up. The ending was disappointing. I was incredibly disappointed by this play. I thought it would be so much better than it was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsty | 5/15/2011

    " An explanation of my profile picture... This is my favourite play, favourite Shakespeare, one of my absolute top five favourite texts - so I have a quotation from it tattooed on my arm. 'We are such stuff / As dreams are made on'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robi | 5/9/2011

    " This is not my favourite play by Shakespeare but it is a pleasure to read nonetheless.

    Funny that he thought Milan on the sea. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 5/8/2011

    " Too bad my professor sucks at teaching... I might have really enjoyed reading this otherwise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 5/8/2011

    " One of the easiest to understand of the Shakespeare plays that I have read. Lots of good fantasy. A fast paced story. Humor. One of my favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 5/7/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aran | 5/4/2011

    " Hadn't read it before-- though I realized, reading it, that various quotations I've used have come from it. Lovely, straightforward. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/3/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Georgie | 4/23/2011

    " I love this play - but then I have a daughter named Miranda and yes, she is wondrous also. Can't help feeling for Caliban too, the "puppy-headed monster". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kalessin | 4/20/2011

    " Last play for my Shakespeare class--all told, I will have read 13 of Shakespeare's plays, and 9 this semester alone. Woot! "
