Hi

Uploading Section 11, a nail-biting election scene, which I hope I have not made sound like the chanting of a succession of laundry-lists -

Sections 8 and 9 are PL OK. :thumbs:
That was quite the confession! I'm afraid that chapter 9 was mostly over my head, so I listened to the words and your voice and gave up understanding it. :hmm:

It did not sound like a laundry list! It's very exciting. :clap:

Chapter 12 is PL OK. It must be horribly tedious electing a new Pope. Personally, I hoped that we could keep Pope John Paul II. He was pretty awesome. Though since I'm not Catholic what do I know. :shock:

Hi

Sorry for the gap in posting - I'm having complicated problems with my teeth, which are putting me off recording.

Here I get to enjoy my balcony appearance. I have purposely given Hadrian a damaged singing voice. After all, he has been
chain-smoking dog-ends for over 20 years...

Hi

Uploading Section 15, in which I'm given a few words to speak in my native Welsh; while the formula for voicing the hero is also disclosed:

The Pope continued in his usual concise monotone. He spoke in the key of E flat minor, very quickly indeed, slurring the letter r, clipping some words and every final g, enunciating others with emphasis, in a manner curiously suggestive of fur and india-rubber and talons.

Section 15 is PL OK.

I always think that foreign languages are sexy. Your voice and in a new to me language. Be still my heart :!:
