T.S. Eliot’s “Journey of the Magi” read by Sir Alec Guiness

I hadn’t heard this poem before, but thought it appropriate for Easter. (I know – Magi are Christmas-related. It’s as close as I could get.) There is another version read by the poet during WW II, but the quality of the recording is poor. I hope you enjoy this version.

T.S. Eliot wrote a book of poetry called Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, on which Andrew Lloyd Weber based the 1981 musical “Cats.”
