“ With a charming and gentlemanly presence, [Ralph Richardson] easily finds the warmth, clarity, and humor in a number of short selections from English literature's thickest eighteenth-century offerings. These "pop-and-hiss" recordings offer a great way to experience how these broadcasts were originally heard more than 60 years ago.” - “BP” (Audiofile)
