PL for Martin's readings

Section 6 - PL OK
Section 7 - PL OK

Section 20

At 4.12
"Richmond's March" is also serious, and is marked "religiose,"
"religiose” should be pronounced “re-li-ji-O-ze”

At 5:06 (no error)
Comment: Wilson has rendered the composer’s name as Frederick Smetana. His first name was actually Bedrich, which, according to the custom of the time, was “Germanized” to Frederick. The same fate befell Smetana’s most famous composition, Vltava, from the orchestral suite Ma Vlast (My Country), which was known for many years by its German name of Die Moldau.

Section 26 - PL OK

Section 27
At 6:25
You read
such is its absolute Rightness.
Instead of:
such is its absolute Tightness.

Section 28 - PL OK

Very distinguished readings.

Cheers

Hi Algy

Thanks for your notes.

I mentioned in my posting for Section 27 that I had corrected Tightness to rightness. I think the capitalising of the T shows this up obviously as a scan error. In fact, the very next section I recorded (not from this text) had the same scanning error of capital T for lower-case 'r'.

As regards Section 20, the only volume of Edward German's music I own (for piano) has him using English expression marks - which is why I used one of the two English pronunciations of religiose (piously religious). It can be said with stress on either the second or the final syllable.

Regards
Martin

Thanks Martin

"Rightness" certainly does make more sense. I am not familiar with German's music, and hence was not aware of his idiosyncratic expression markings (obviously somewhat in the same vein as Percy Grainger). It did strike me that the correct Italian term should have been religioso.

Sections 20 and 27 now marked as PL OK.

Cheers

Section 18 corrected and reuploaded:

I can't hear the chunk you mean at 7:30, so I've left it as is. But all else has been fixed.
