My one complaint is that the packaging contains less than the bare minimum you'd expect. It doesn't even include a proper track listing, so here's one for your reference:
Caedmon's Hymn (1:00)
The Dream of the Rood (6:53)
The Wanderer (9:09)
The Battle of Brunan Burg (4:40)
A Wife's Lament (4:19)
Beowulf Lines 1-125 (8:32)
Beowulf Lines 195-225 (2:13)
Beowulf Lines 702-852 (9:51)
Beowulf Lines 3137-3180 (3:50)
Don't look to this CD for any background on the texts or even the performer. But it does deliver what's most important: 40+ minutes of Old English poetry, well-read and well-recorded.
I wish could find the name of the version of Beowulf that is read on the CD.
Hopefully someone will comment on their favorite translation(s) of Beowulf.
