I wouldn't buy Stanley Lombardo's recital of Iliad.
Let alone the aspirated pronunciation of smooth plosives, his "reading" is totally out of meters.
I think the "Demodokos' song" sample here
reproduces what's most close to what I learned from Pharr.
I wonder if they had put all Iliad and Odyssey in such a quality in the Audio Forum version.
Oh, the Audio Forum version is recited by Daitz, and the sample here
was once discussed here in textkit. I forgot what was the general consensus of the advanced members. But my impression was that it sounds too exaggerated and artificial, to the point of ridiculousness.
