Description

In this delightful double bill, narrator Alison Larkin’s AudioFile Earphones award-winning recording of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice are followed by Songs from Regency England to give listeners a sense of what after dinner family entertainment might have sounded like in Jane Austen’s time.
Recorded in a drawing room not unlike the Bennets’, a young lady who sounds suspiciously like Mary Bennet sings The Lonely Ash Grove, Ye Banks and Braes, and Down by the Salley Gardens.
"Alison Larkin's narration will captivate listeners from the first sentence. Her delicate voice and perfect English accent sweep the listener back in time, right into the lives of the characters. Austen's nineteenth-century writing style flows off Larkin's tongue, making the dense passages easy to understand. She effortlessly conveys the many humorous scenes, capturing the pompous gentry and their ridiculous (even to them, apparently) social conventions…This version stands out as one of the best.” AudioFile Magazine
