The New Testament of William Tyndale, published in 1525–6, was the first text of the Bible to be printed in English. It's publication is arguably the most important event in the history of the English Reformation—and so controversial at the time that Tyndale, its translator, was tried for heresy, incarcerated, and burned at the stake.
           
This audio recording of Saint Matthew’s Gospel, the first recording of any part of Tyndale’s historic translation of the Bible, brings his groundbreaking work vividly to life. The text is read by English language historian David Crystal, who has contributed an authoritative introductory essay on the genesis and language of Tyndale’s translation. This two-disc set provides a unique opportunity to hear and appreciate one of the most historic texts in the history of the English language.
