Here is the PL note for Section 9 - The Wedding Festival. (A very nice and clear reading, too!)

1) At 6:17 - Pop at beginning of "tissue" in the phrase "cell tissue."

Nothing else to note except that there were a number of times when it felt like the reading was skirting with plosives-which-almost-but-didn't-quite happen. Predictably, I noticed these with "p" and "th." Nothing to correct for this recording regarding plosives, but you might consider moving your mic slightly for future recordings. I'd hate for a similar well-done reading which is otherwise gorgeous to have to be fiddled with (or rerecorded!) for plosives which are more easily prevented than cured.

Updating the MW now.

Hi Chessie!

Thank you for the nice words on my recording. I took a minute to remove the pop at 6:17 and re-uploaded. I know you said I needn't, but as I had missed that in listening, I wanted to make it cleaner, should others mind when they listen. I understand if you don't/can't take the time to use this upload, but here it is, and thank you for listening and your comments. I will definitely move my mic away a little in future!

OK, try it now. Hopefully it will work.
All I'm saying is that the house doesn't fill up with annoying fruit flies when I buy donuts
