couldn't concentrate with music accompanying the narration.

Huge disappointment

JEJ has a beautiful voice, but he keeps things subdued and rushed here--there's no stateliness or majesty in his reading. And the constant music in the background is unforgivable--cheesy musak versions of old hymms and sentimental songs.
