The finest voices reading a wonderful selection of poetry accompanied by selected classical music. Includes:

Excellent poems, and excellent readers, BUT I found the background music intrusive and completely unnecessary-- If you like poetry, you know it stands by itself. Having a sound tract is like listening to too song played simultaneously. arg!
"poems ruined by irritating musical backing"
There is a loud musical backing to every poem as if they thought the poetry by itself not worth recording - as a result you strain to hear the words. Its an alarmingly stupid idea.
There should be a clear warning of this and it should go under the separate genre of 'poetry set to music by idiots'
"Well what a fiasco, ruined by the music"
The narrators are excellent I would not change them.
Each poem should be introduced. A good selection ruined by the music.
"who wrote what?."
there's no indication anywhere to know who's reading what. A real disappointment. Don't bother with it.
