* Beowulf – The First, The Original Scary Story (Audio Book)

In “Beowulf,” an audio CD, this dramatic original version in English, which has been passed down from generation to generation, over hundreds of years in other languages, can now be found laced with composer Sam Sorensen’s original musical score and effects. In this entertaining adventure, Beowulf rescues King Hrothgar and the Danes from the ravages of monstrous horrors. The listener becomes acquainted with Beowulf’s strength, heroism and noble heart. From over the gray Baltic, the wintry “whale-road,” to the dark and dripping caves of the misty moor, British author Ian Serrallier reweaves the original tale brandishing all the energy and vividness of the original. Sorensen’s powerful narration and inspired original score for a huge orchestra and choir enhance the story each step of the way. “Beowulf” (UPC 83710143784) features a story by Ian Serrallier, and music by Samuel Sorensen (with Royal Heorot Philharmonic).
