It's totally up to the reader. But I think it would be cool ... 8-)

Oh, that was me. I'll record them this weekend, and I shall try to (finally) do my own lines as well.

ETA: Here they are! I don't know what voice part you sing -- I'm an alto, so I just recorded them at a place where they're reasonably comfortable (I transposed both of them down, as they're set for tenor [if one wishes to be authentic] or soprano).

Full Fathom Five - Jacobean setting by Robert Johnson (not that Robert Johnson)

Where the Bee Sucks - Jacobean setting by Robert Johnson. The 6/4 "merrily, merrily" section is technically supposed to repeat, but I didn't record it and you can do it or not as you see fit.

Where the Bee Sucks - alternate 18th-century setting by Thomas Arne. This one is possibly more famous than the Johnson setting. I left out the repeats for both sections in the interests of time.

Woah. That's pretty cool, strangebrooch!

Excellent-- those are really cool! I'm working on learning them right now. :)

Quick question-- is there a setting for the text that comes immediately before Full Fathom Five?

Sorry I wasn't clear. The question was directed to Strangebrooch. I was wondering if there is a musical setting for the couple of lines of text that come before "Full Fathom Five."

You mean for "Come unto these yellow sands"? There are none that can be traced back to Shakespeare's own day, though Henry Purcell wrote one in the 1660s. It's rather difficult, but if you want I can record it.

I was reading over Gonzalo, and found that some of the lines (in 3.3 especially) are confusing me. In context, they seem as if they should be spoken by another character, but there is no other character given. Can someone check these over and help me make sense of this?

I just read through 3.3, and I'm not certain which lines might be the issue.

Can you give me an example of the ambiguity, please? 8-)

Hi – here’s Alonso. The names of the parts on the Gutenberg text that I looked at are often missing, so I checked with another text - I hope I’ve got all the sections.

That is SO weird. I could have sworn that the names on 3.3 were left off, near the end of the scene. Yet now I see them. I have no idea what happened there!

Okay, now I can record. :)
