Edward Frederic Benson (1867-1940) was an English novelist, biographer, memoirist, archaeologist, and short story writer, best known for his evocative and beautifully narrated ghost stories.
'Royal Visitors' is a humorous story set at Trinity College, Cambridge, and tells the story of a revenge prank by the undergraduate nicknamed 'The Babe' on his tutor, Mr. Stewart, who at short notice had withdrawn a lunch invitation to dine with visiting foreign royals.

Ruined the story. Bizarre intonation! Doesn't someone listen to the finished thing before offering it to the public for sale?

I'm afraid the narration was rather jarring and almost electronic - perhaps it was a recording issue. Given the subject matter a low, soft, smooth tone would have perhaps been better and clearer.
