sound fluctuates

I've been doing a lot of shakespeare recently for a project and find that while many of the individual plays have great performances, the BBC set and Arkangel set seem to be of better quality or at least production values. My favorite productions are the BBC series even though there are a few moments when I think a line is mis-interpreted or emphasized. While this one has it's moments and is passable in a pinch, the fluctuation of sound level is irritating; you turn it up and trumpets blare, you turn it back down and either the players whisper, or they are moving away from microphones, or the sound level itself drops. I can no longer tolerate it and must find another version.
