Like Rick Wakeman's musical version of Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth, this rendition of H. G. Wells' War of the Worlds by Jeff Wayne combines original music with readings of the text. Wayne's WOTW has more text reading than music, (compared to the Wakeman-Verne recording) but that's fine.
