I love this. I had the pleasure of being taught by Ben Crystal's Dad at university so perhaps I have a bit more insight into OP than some but this should not exclude anybody! The extracts are well selected and beautifully read. A must-listen for anyone studying Shakespeare, the linguistics of OP or who just likes a bit of the Bard at Bedtime!
This is really a good book and i recommend this book to everyone and good to listen to it .

If you could sum up Shakespeare's Original Pronunciation in three words, what would they be?
Enjoyable, Well Done
What about the narrators’s performance did you like?
The various narrators did a good job of acting as they recited the lines. You can almost picture them on stage.
Any additional comments?
Even if you are not interested in the original pronunciation, these are particularly well done and enjoyable to listen to.

I've spent many hours reading material printed around 1600 and those works have come to mean a lot to me. The spellings make more sense now.
I would LOVE to have more of this. Whole plays, all the sonnets. Hell, there was a ton of literature printed at the time. They could read recipe books or a treatise on farming and I'd listen to the whole thing.
I hope to eventually hear OP in my head when I read Elizabethan and early Jacobean literature.
