Most Helpful

Voice good, music terrible.

The voice of Mr. Jones is very good. However, it was a bit too soft and reverential for my taste. Would it not have been better if it carried a bit more punch and authority?

However, that's a minor quibble when compared to the accompanying 'music'. It was spectacularly horrendous. Saccharine nonsense that destroyed the recording. (And that piano!)

It was the King James bible. Could we not have some music from that period to accompany it? Something appropriate. The english is beautiful and powerful, but how can we listen to it when it's accompanied by that noise?

the bible and music

James Earl John is marvellous, except for rather fast delivery. The background music is a distraction, but you can get used to it. I have, but it took all of Matthew.
