British Library Tyndale’s Bible: Saint Matthew’s Gospel (audio CD)

Image

What was so special about the Tyndale Bible? How does it sound to us today? The first text of the Bible to be printed in English was the New Testament of William Tyndale, published in 1525-6. Its repercussions lasted for almost a century, stimulated by the religious intolerances of the age, and Tyndale’s influence can be seen in most of the Bible translations over the next 100 years, not least in the language of the King James Bible of 1611 – as this recording of Saint Matthew’s Gospel in the pronunciation of Tyndale’s own time makes vividly clear. This recording is read in the original pronunciation by David Crystal. Also available as an audio download here
