The Faerie Queene -- Book 1 Canto 01
The Faerie Queene -- Book 1 by Edmund Spenser (c.1552-1599) "The First Book of the Faerie Queene Contayning The Legende of the Knight of Red Crosse or Holinesse". The Faerie Queene was never completed, but it continues to be one of the most beautiful and important works of literature ever written. Spenser wrote it as a paean to the Virgin Queen Elizabeth, and to the golden age which she had brought to England. Sponsored by Sir Walter Raleigh and commended by the foremost literary minds of his day, Spenser's book remains one of the crowning poetic achievements of the Elizabethan period.

The reader has a good voice but needs to pay more attention to the rhythm of the poetry. In line 3 he pronounces "deepe wounds" as "deepy wounds", and similarly in line 5 he pronounces? "armes" as "armies". In each case, adding an extra syllable upsets Spenser's careful metre. A few lines later, "puissance" must be pronounced with 3 syllables (pu-iss-ance) to preserve the metre.

Nice! One correction: in stanza 6 (relating the sudden storm that forces Redcrosse and Una to seek shelter in the woods) the reader says "And angry love an hideous storme of rain / Did pour into his Lemans lap so fast..." (04:16). Although most versions have? "Ioue", the actual word intended is Jove, i.e. the Roman god of the sky. ("i" and "u" were not always distinct from "j" and "v" in early printed works.) Jove pours rains into "his Lemans lap", i.e. that of his lover, the Earth.
