I’ve just finished listening to one of the most enjoyable programs I’ve listened to yet from BBC Radio 3’s “Words & Music” program. Entitled “Life’s a Wave”, all pieces of poetry, prose, and music have been selected to fit a sea-faring theme. Although some parts of it are a little dark, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the voices of Lesley Sharp and John Shrapnel (both new discoveries for me). I loved the quiet sounds Sharp’s voice made of the words no matter their meaning, and Shrapnel had such a burly, deck-scrubbed timbre that he made even “Moby Dick” sound fascinating!
Unfortunately, I waited a bit late to listen to it and pass it on, so there are only a dozen or so remaining days to listen.
