Los Angeles, Calif., November 15, 2007- Once again, the oldest tale in the English language is told in the newly released cd "Beowulf". This time in a style familiar to the modern ear, and highly entertaining. The musical tale is based on the book "Beowulf The Warrior", (Bethlehem Books) by the English author, and master wordsmith Ian Serraillier, with music by Sam Sorensen.
In this memorable adventure, Beowulf rescues King Hrothgar and the Danes from the ravages of monstrous horrors in a manner of compelling grandeur. The listener becomes acquainted with Beowulf's strength, heroism and noble heart, as Serrallier reweaves the original tale into modern narrative verse, brandishing all the energy and vividness of the original. From over the grey Baltic, the wintry "whale-road", to the dark and dripping caves of the misty moor, Sorensen's powerful narration and inspired original score for orchestra and choir enhance the story every step of the way.
