Album Review

Duran, Manuel – “Golden Treasury” – [Spoken Arts, Inc.]

Naysayer   9/7/2016   12-inch, International

Ahh, the joy of spoken word, especially in another language that you may or may not understand fully or even partially. These 12 selections of Spanish prose, selected and read by the professor of Romance Languages, Manuel Duran, give a brief overview of some of the best pieces of Spanish writing from the last few centuries. Some of the authors may be familiar, others not as much. The beauty is in the lyrical quality of the words, the phrasing. Let them stand on their own or mix them in with other sounds. Enjoy.
