Through an act of heroism a woman saves her lover, who was destined to be executed in The Tower of London at the ringing of the curfew.

Very peculiar recording

I love the poem Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight with a kind of ironic fondness for its melodrama. So I bought this recording. First; there are multiple announcements for the website of the producing company. Why?
Then, the production starts with 2 verses of Curfew, followed at once by 2 verses of Towser. Huh?
Finally it starts all over again and you hear all of Curfew, then all of Towser (after another website announcement!)
Once you really get to the poetry, it's ok though Towser is narrated in a most un-Kansas-like accent.
