Corbaccio act 5

https://librivox.org/uploads/gloriana/volpone_corbaccio_5.mp3

There was less to this part than I expected. When I have seen this play on stage Corbaccio seemed quite an important character, but he does not have much to say.

PL Notes for Act 3, to start with:

Very nicely done, and the volume is much better now. :)

You skipped the line at 2:08 - "How does my Volpone?"

Ok, now for PL notes Act 4:

4.1: Sounds good. There's just one part where you read the wrong word and I think it changes the meaning. ~1:44 the text says “to persever” and you read “to preserver.”

4.2 is PL OK. :thumbs:

Sounds great! Only one thing: You did not read the "All" line at the end (" Honour'd fathers--")

EDIT: Almost forgot: The volume is just a little low. Coming in around 85. Could you amplify by about 4?

Thanks so much for all your excellent PLing, Mary! No need to provide notes on volume, though - I can take care of this during editing (and prefer it that way, in fact). :)

I do, actually: in 5.2 they're talking about an "ingine"

"SIR P: Sir, I have an ingine—

(...)

PER: And call you this an ingine?"

How is that pronounced? (I can read IPA, if you want to transcribe it.) :)

Here's the OED entry on "ingine" -

http://www.oed.com/view/Entry/95789

It's like saying, "I've got a great idea!" But Peregrine is skeptical. :) It can be pronounced like "engine."

Okay, thank you! I'll check the entry on campus tomorrow. :)

Corbaccio plus All

https://librivox.org/uploads/gloriana/volpone_corbaccio_5.mp3

Having done this part I would like to help finish this by offering to read Castrone, but I would need to agree what to do about the song in scene 1 done by Nano and Castrone. Is it to be spoken or sung? Do I wait for Kristin to post her version (she did claim first) or post my version and see if it is acceptable?

Thanks, Alan - but as I've combined Castrone with the Fourth Avocatore, and the latter appears in the same scenes as Corbaccio (often speaking quite close together), I think it might be confusing to have the same reader in the roles. I appreciate the offer, though! :)
