Re: [Solo] MARK TWAIN'S TRAVEL LETTERS FROM 1891-92 - tg

Section 5 notes 1:20 'afloat' not afoot (Your choice.) 8:18 'fame' instead of frame (I don't know which might be the correct choice between them) 23:56 'no' instead of yes (George was born in Denmark, so 'no' would be the correct answer.) 1:20 I've corrected! 8:18 and 23:56 I've left as is...."fram...

04 is done :-)) PL OK! It's funny, but one of the published sources doesn't include Twain's poem. They must not have liked it! I might only add that you pronounce 'adversary' differently than do I.

Re: [Solo] MARK TWAIN'S TRAVEL LETTERS FROM 1891-92 - tg

Section 3. You might consider putting just a bit more silence at the very beginning of the recording. Times are spot on. 7:33 'half past ten' which has to be changed to make sense in its context. 20:49 'convened' and not convinced 22:19 'persuasion' and not permission 29:06 'resolution' and not rev...

NOTE: I have gone through the WHOLE recording and changed ALL "Bayreuth" pronunciations to the accepted pronunciation I SHOULD have looked up initially!!!!! Hahaha! Most non-German speakers will wonder what you are talking about. well...everyone seems to agree with Oxford dictionary's English... ht...

By the way, I will need the times where you made changes. Or at least tell me how many there are.
Can we let this go....since it's an interpretation issue...not a spelling issue.??

Section 2 notes: Times are approximate. The first issue might be one of the title you use. The text you cite is "At the Shrine of St. Wagner." 0:25 'rolling' not pulling 4:35 'grand and lonely' and not lovely 15:10 'and in some of the other operas' Your recording omits 'the other.'
