    "Very disappointing"

    This is awful. The poems are repeated twice which is annoying. The reading is not consistent. Siobhan McKenna and Cyril Cusack are fair but W.B.Yeats's rendition of the poems is dreadful. I have not rated it as it does not deserve even one star. It is a very old recording obviously . There must be a more recent reading of these poems. It seems that I must fill in the star rating section before this can be submitted. I do this reluctantly

    "Blurry"

    It should have been inspiring to hear both Yeats and McKenna doing these readings, but the sound quality was terrible. Find another version.
