CD Reviews

Astonishing Blend of Material & Performer!

"I stumbled on this album on cassette in my college days. As it combined one of my favorite books with one of my favorite performers, (Richard Harris is, to me the quintessential "King Arthur", before "Dances With Wolves" he was, "A Man Called Horse", & how inscrutably charming is his "Prof. Albus Dumbledore?" -- Merlin must be proud!) I took it home & soon played it often. So much that I've gone through at least 3 copies on cassette. I no longer dared hope to find it on CD since most sources don't even list it at all, I'm ECSTATIC! To describe the music is not my forte, but I can tell you the music & spoken elements combine in a way that soothes while also challenging the heart & soul! The only drawback is that this is an abridged presentation,so some beautiful parts aren't there, but what is is sublime! Go Get It!"
VERY moving

"Many years ago this was my introduction to The Prophet, and it brought me to tears. The musical score and Harris's reading bring Gibran's incredible metaphors to life. When I feel like dipping into a spiritual calm, nothing works for me like this CD. I have given out several as presents. As another reviewer mentioned, this was produced quite a while ago, so don't expect contemporary style, but it works. If you have read the passage which begins "Life is indeed darkness," wait until you hear what Harris does with it!"
I used it in my Wedding!

"And it brought the audience to tears. Richard Harris doing a spoken
word "dramatic interpretation" of The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. Does
it work? Yes, in a big way. This recording dates back to the 70's so
the orchestration may come across a bit dated, but having this
available on CD is a real find. Highly recommended!"
