The legend of King Arthur comes to life!
Howard Pyle recounts the great moments of Arthur's life: the infant son of the dying king, hidden for his protection by the magician Merlin; the boy who reclaims his destiny by pulling the sword from the anvil; and the king who led his Knights of the Round Table to battle armed with the miraculous sword, Excalibur. The King Arthur Audio Collection also includes the story of Sir Lancelot, the valiant knight who fell in love with Queen Guinevere, and the story of Sir Galahad, whose purity and quest for the Holy Grail were ultimately Arthur's tragedy.
Performed eloquently by Ian Richardson, this collection is a perfect retelling of the greatest story of kings and knights, wizards and duels, love, honor, and chivalry that has ever been told.
This collection includes: The Sword in the Anvil, Excalibur, The Story of Sir Lancelot, and The Story of Sir Galahad.
