This is a good collection of the same poem performed by different people, some better than others. A couple sounded like they were reading Dr. Seuss-like meters, heavily emphasized, but a few very nice selections continued through line breaks and read as sentences and persuasive coaxing. A good introduction to Marlowe's famous poem.
