Audible Editor Reviews

The Revelation is a sobering work, and Heathcote Williams's narration of the Authorized, or King James, translation is a nice match of reader and text. The tone for the work is set by excerpts from Benjamin Britten's "War Requiem," which begins and ends the narration. Williams's voice is controlled and evenly modulated. The right amount of inflection provides emphasis but is never overdone.
