How to use this section
As an additional support feature for the study of the Testament of Cresseid, this section of the Britain in Print site provides an audio recording of the entire poem, broken into eight sections. Each section is visually supported by the text, displayed stanza-by-stanza, alongside an illustration of the page from which it comes, in the 1593 Charteris Edition. This is the earliest edition of the poem in print to be attributed to Henryson and is used courtesy of the British Library.

The recording has been made exclusively for use via the Britain in Print site and features the voices of Dr. Morna Fleming and Colin Donati, from the Robert Henryson Society - © 2003 Britain in Print.
