Audible Editor Reviews

Narrator Roy McMillan delivers this fascinating study of the great cathedrals of Europe with an authoritative tone and bell-like clarity. His pleasing accent, enunciation, and sublime rhythm make this performance extraordinary. McMillan uses his trained and professional voice to create a visual aspect to the work that brings these inspiring structures down to earth. He uses pauses between phrases and extra emphasis on others to make the story of these massive structures intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually engaging. Listening to this book would be essential before that next tour of the European cathedrals.
