Sir John Gielgud is considered by many to have been the greatest actor of the Twentieth Century. His superb voice has spanned the whole spectrum of poetry and drama, and delighted and moved audiences for over seventy years. This wonderful selection of Gielgud's recordings brings together the work of Longfellow, Shakespeare and Edward Lear, plus Gielgud's memorable portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in which he appeared with Ralph Richardson and Orson Welles for the acclaimed 1950s radio broadcasts. It concludes with Gielgud's bestselling and much-loved reading of Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol'.
'The Gielgud Collection' celebrates the work of a man who encompassed "the history of the twentieth century British theatre" (Sheridan Morley), and whose talent will be remembered and honoured for years to come.
