The poem selection and the readings are good but the background music that runs throughout is so dominating that it is a constant struggle to make out the words. In the end I gave up and find it deeply frustrating that now I must buy another T S Eliot collection.

Spoiled by over dominant music

Any additional comments?

A good narrator and a more than worthy work for a music accompanied performance. But oh-dear what a disaster with over loud and mostly inappropriate music.
