Beautiful Poems, Balm For The Soul.
The selection of poems was fantastic and just right for the run-up to Valentines Day. There were poems that I had never heard plus some old, dear favourites. The subject matter made me stop working and really listen to the words. It was, therefore, very relaxing and uplifting. A real oasis of calm in the middle of a busy day.
His voice is mesmerising, like melted chocolate or a glass of really good red wine. It allows me to drift off into another world, stress-free and calm, deeply satisfying. His diction is wonderful and the timbre is deep and sympathetic, romantic and full of expression.It is balm for the soul.He could read a shopping list and it would sound wonderful!
Get ready to be romanced.
