Many students have asked me if there are recordings of Middle English
readings available. Here are some links to on-line recordings.
Yourself to Read Chaucer's Middle English (Harvard Chaucer
Site): On-line tutorial on the late fourteenth-century London
variety of Middle English used by Chaucer. Still helpful for learning
to read other varieties of Middle English and for gaining familiarity
with sound and spelling correspondences.
Baugh's Medieval English Narrator Site (University of Vermont):
Extracts from numerous medieval English texts with some explanatory
material and sound recordings. The section on romances is especially useful (click
here to go to the table of contents).
- Chaucer Studio:
Commercial producer of audio and video recordings of Chaucer and
other Middle English poets. There are numerous samples on-line
and information for ordering products.
