Re: How.

Well, having been brought up in England it's almost impossible not to be interested in literature and not have to endure 'Chaucer' as he spoke it - so original pronunciation of Elizabethan English is a doddle.

The link Charles gave is good - there is also a cd of the Globe people doing music and original pronunciation; there are a number of original pronunciation music cds - many to do with 'louve' and a great source of ideas.

Finally, when I teach Shakespeare to High School Kids, I use this link -

A good starting point I find.
:shock:

my English class used that site when we were doing our Shakespeare webquest. It's very good.
