Have made a short update to first post.
Update being:

Throughout the text you may see some numbers. Please ignore these. They indicate notes at the end of the text which I've decided to omit from the recording.

Browsing around on the net I found a marvellous article which expounds the joys of Macaulay.

There's a link to it here:

Absolutely!
As cool as a very cool thing in a very cool place.

It looks as if it's your first recording.
While I'd be delighted for you to record part 3 I wonder if it might be better for you to try a smaller piece first to see how you get along.
Maybe part 11?

Let me know what you think?

Kind regards

Jim

Excellent!
Part 11 is now allocated to you.

Any problems you encounter, please feel free to post them here and hopefully someone should be able to help.

If you see any text that doesn't make sense then let me know what it is and where in the text. I have a printed copy so we can compare for scanning errors.

Hope you enjoy yourself.
