God's Promises by John Bale - Act 4

Episode 24,  Oct 26, 2018, 10:35 AM

A plain text version of Act 4 of God's Promises written by protestant playwright John Bale in 1538. This act sees God talking to the prophet Moses, part of a procession of prophets, before finally preparing the way for the arrival of Jesus through speaking to John the Baptist. This is a follow up to a test recording made in 2013 and incorporates elements from that session and maintaining the basic style for continuity. As a plain text version, with no music or sound effects beyond the odd filter, it's primarily here to give us - and you - an idea of what would be needed to bring the play to life. Other recordings from the play are available, and more are on the way. Narrator - Annie Eddington, God - Robert Crighton & Moses - Rob Myson.
