Reading of Layamon’s Brut

I know that the lines that are read in the above video are in a previous portion of the reading,  but listening to the reader greatly helped understand the overall tone of the story.   As I am not well versed when it comes to the language on the page,  hearing someone else sound out the words is quite helpful trying to understand the meter.   It’s quite beautiful,  if I do say so myself.
