One of Europe's greatest epics, the story of King Hrothgar, the monster Grendel and the hero Beowulf has been passed down in written form for hundreds of generations. In this remarkable one-man tour de force, Benjamin Bagby (co-founder and director of the Sequentia Ensemble for the Medieval Music), accompanying himself on an Anglo-Saxon harp, delivers this gripping tale - in the original Old English - as it could have been experienced more than a thousand years ago. Sung in Old English with optional Modern English subtitles. Recorded live in Helsingborg, Sweden (January, 2006) and directed by award- winning filmmaker Stellan Olsson.
