"Gielgud is to Shakespeare what Luciano Pavarotti is to Italian opera: his magnificent voice gives you shivers." (The Philadelphia Inquirer)
Gielgud hams it too much, reading as if he were on stage, trying to emote. More concerned with his interpretation than he is with the meter, he may be a good actor but he doesn't understand the music of verse.
