Well-read, and as always with the Naxos titles, music is nicely integrated into the reading. I generally like the Naxos abridgements, but in this case too much has been trimmed to fit the playing time. Specifically, the episode of the Wilks brothers -- a deception practiced by the King and the Duke on a whole town -- is omitted. Naxos has recently published an unabridged version that may be a better bet.
