Great narrator too!
Don't be put off - the narrator is Robert Ashley, whose lazy Southern drawl seems an odd choice, but it's one that works well. Ashley, whose voice also features extensively in his own operas, manages to be hypnotic and laconic at once (there's no other way I can think of to describe it!). Definitely worth a listen. Oh - an of course, typical eMuxup, the composer is Eliane, not Elaine!
