Are you looking for a live reading of Chaucer's English? One of
the mandatory classes at Columbia is what they call Brit Lit,
and the first thing we've started with is a tape of an American
reading what is purported to be Chaucer's English. I say "purported"
because to me, it sounded like a Yank trying to speak Swedish,
of which I am and have.
If this is similar to what you're after, lemme know and I'll
find out where our instructor got the tape.
