Section 10

17:32 I think I would eliminate what sounds like nervous laughter from Mozart.
19:12 'Inmate' or 'intimate'?
The recording is cut short before its close.
I guess not everyone saw Amadeus movie 😒

I'm working with new software, I think my network cut out during file transfer.
Hahaha! I saw it. I stand by my recommendation.

I was loathe to remove the laugh. Alas, c'est probablement pour le mieux. (sad emoji)

Now with an ending!

inmate (n.)
1580s, "one allowed to live in a house rented by another" (usually for a consideration),
from in (adj.) "inside" + mate (n.) "companion."
OED suggests the first element is perhaps originally inn.
Sense of "one confined to an institution" is first attested 1834.

Like a happy face that has discovered the benefits of fiber.

And I thought I'd have time with coffee before finishing Section 10 and then I could wait patiently for 11!

I best get to work.

Chapter 10 now PL OK!

I admit, the chapter is a bit bereft sounding without your Tom Hulce impression. (The chapter will get over it.)

Warning! Section 13 recorded.

Just need to edit, and make corrections, and contemplate my butchering of the foreign place-names and utter lack of understanding of the various currency nomenclatures before torturing the general populace.
