This World’s Globe


Celebrating Elizabethan and Jacobean Theatre brought to life by the actors and musicians of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre London, with words and music recreating the unique Globe experience. Actors Liam Brennan, Tom Burke, John McEnery and Mark Rylance are featured in their performances as Romeo, Orsino, John of Gaunt and King Richard II.

Also featuring material from Twelfth Night, Measure for Measure and Much Ado About Nothing with introductions in the original pronounciation of Shakespeare’s time, all music played on period instruments plus the special treat of excerpts of live performances on the Globe stage.

There could hardly be a better aural souvenir of a visit to the Globe, but the set also stands up on its own as a superbly-performed compilation of Elizabethan and Jacobean music – BBC Music Magazine
