How They Brought The Good News From Ghent To Aix

Robert Browning

Did anyone ever listen to Browning recite the poem himself. It's the only recording of his voice in existance. He manages to deliver the first four lines and then stops & says "I'm sorry Gentlemen, I'm afraid I've forgotten the words of me own poem". Hilarious.

What was the Good News?
Browning's Recording
Added by: Keith Ullman
This is the first known recording of any voice to be played after that person's death. It was supposedly premiered at a service of commemoration in Venice, one year after his death.

I didn't figure out what the good news was. I have looked and looked. I just can't seem to find out what it is. Will someone help me pleas?
