CBC: As It Happens: Moonlight by Guy de Maupassant (as read by Alan Maitland)

SFFaudio Online Audio

Here’s a sweet find from the CBC Digital Archives! It’s Alan Maitland, perhaps you know him as “Front Porch Al”, reading Moonlight (aka In The Moonlight) by Guy de Maupassant.

It was first broadcast on CBC Radio’s As It Happens on August 2, 1993.

The tale of a misogynist priest, the Abbé Marignan, who is ruled purely by reason, but whose view of life and love is influenced by the magic and splendour of moonlight.

And, I’m pleased to offer a different translation of the same story in |PDF| form.
