Of course, the Gettysburg address always demands at least a five. the only reason I didn't give it a five was because the reader didn't seem to understand the passion of what he was saying. At the end he could not let the last beautiful words just hang in the air , instead he just went right on talking and said this is the Gettysburg address!

good to listen several times yearly
