Not as engaging as I'd hoped, and the novelty of hearing someone singing in Old English accompanied by a period instrument wore off quicker than I thought. But the "extras" were interesting and it certainly got me interested in reading the original.

Very good, but definitely for the enthusiast. The subtitles definitely help.

Benjamin Bagby performs/sings Beowulf in Old English with modern English subtitles while playing the Anglo-Saxon harp. This stunning performance of the first 1062 lines of Beowulf shows how powerful and vastly entertaining the poem is. There is no better way to "get" Beowulf as the early Anglo-Saxons experienced it, sung and enacted by a "scop" or bard.
