Below from Naxos Audiobooks is the list of poems on this audiobook:
Great Spirits now on Earth are sojourning
Much have I travelled in the realms of gold
On the sea
Wherein lies happiness?
On Sitting Down to read King Lear once Again
Bright Star! Would I were steadfast as thou
Old Meg she was a Gipsy
Deep in the shady sadness of a vale
A casement high and triple-arched there was
Ode to a Nightingale
Ode on Melancholy
Why did I laugh tonight? No voice will tell
La Belle Dame Sans Merci
Ode on a Grecian Urn
Ode to Psyche
A haunting music, sole perhaps and lone
This living hand, now warm and capable
When I have fears that I may cease to be
There was a naughty boy
The Eve of St Agnes
One of my favourite narrators reads one of my favourite poets. I bought this because of the emotionally lucid Michael Sheen, and Samuel West is no less excellent.
There are books of the same chemical composition as dynamite. The only difference is that a piece of dynamite explodes once, whereas a book explodes a thousand times. ― Yevgeny Zamyatin
Sensual and sweet-sounding. A brilliant selection of poems and odes of one of the most celebrated Romantic poets. The narrators' performance was laudable.

"Why did I laugh tonight?"
Compelling evidence of the centrality of prosopopoeia to the reception of the lyric.
= They read with expression, conveying thoughts and feelings plausibly associated with the words of the poems.
If you liked the movie "Bright Star," you'll like this.
The change of voice -- and reader?--in order to render "Ode on Melancholy" properly. Its language is very artificial and this was done histrionically and well.
Sir Ralph Richardson' s reading aloud of Keats poems is fascinatingly different but also very pleasing.
