I was pretty conflicted looking at this album. That is, I'm a huge fan of Shakespeare, but I'm not a huge fan of vocal recordings, especially in a more classical-baroque style. I will confess that it was difficult to get into this, but ultimately it proved a good listen. While the inspiration seems to have been taken from Shakespeare's comedies as opposed to his tragedies, the tone and cadence of every song fits ever so well with the cadence of Shakespeare's iambic pentameter. And that's why I like it. It's a beautiful midpoint of opera and spoken word.
