Old English question

If I wanted to have someone record audio samples of Old English words and texts, which Germanic language background do you think would allow to the reader to be able to read it most naturally and/or most accurately? Offhand I'm guessing perhaps Icelandic (due to orthography), followed by perhaps Danish? Someone else suggested recently that perhaps some of the Celtic languages would be a possibility as well (which I guess makes sense from the perspective of geographic proximity).
