rom Socrates to Lincoln, this title includes some of history's most significant figures with their most important speeches. Fighting for justice, for freedom of speech and sometimes even for their own lives, these orators spoke on the most dramatic issues of their day. The readings are supplemented by music from Sibelius, Schumann and Nielsen.

These speeches were just ok. Maybe you had to be there. And the voice actors were passable to bad.
