Shakespeare in Original Pronunciation

Or OP, as they call it.

 

My first impression is that it sounds very Celtic, which is odd, as the Angles, Saxons, Jutes, and their Norman overlords were none of them Celts. I must be wrong about that, then.

My second is that the lines flow with a musicality that they do not with modern pronunciation, and they aren’t any harder to follow than Shakespeare’s thoughts are anyway. Fascinating stuff.
