King James Version
Alexander Scourby (1913-1985), who narrated the King James Version for the GoBible®, is best known for his precise, mellifluous voice he leant to the narration of some of the most beloved literary works. Originally from Brooklyn, New York, he trained in Shakespearean roles in the 1930s and perfected his voice in radio dramas in the 1940s. He quickly became a well-known sound on Broadway, in motion pictures, and on television.
Scourby recorded talking books starting in 1937 and is particularly remembered for his landmark recording of the entire King James Version of the Bible. He was also the narrator of many television documentaries, notably the series of specials on CBS entitled “The Body Human,” as well as many of the National Geographic specials. His last narrating assignment was the documentary “Toscanini: The Maestro,” in 1985. Although Scourby made voice recordings of more than 500 different books, he considered the Bible to be his most important.
