Sorry for the delay. It's my teaching semester and the students are keeping me busy plus there was noisy construction outside office where I have my recording set up. I plan on going in to record #36 over the weekend
No worries here! But, thanks for checking in.
Thank you for your patience.

Here is #36

Track Length
8:21.50

It passed my checker at 90dB

The only word that challenged me was "lutany" (no typo) in

[...]
And ye, winged minstrels of her fair meinie,
Being newly coated in glad livery,
Upon her steps attend,
And round her treading dance and without end
Reel your shrill lutany.
[...]

I believe Thompson refers to the sound of a lute. Hence I read it as such and not as litany.

Makes sense?

Yes, I quite agree --lutany is his word.
Thank you for another nice recording. :clap:

Now, if I can convince silverquill to get his sections in, we'll have this one wrapped up. :lol:

Hmm, aren't you silverquill?

Glad you liked the reading and my interpretation.

Hi all,

I can PL your sections, Larry. I see we´re almost there with this project! :thumbs:

ETA:
Section 14 is PL OK after spot-check! I have updated the MW

I see your sections (2 and 50) have already been PLed a little bit further up in the thread. According to standard PL it would not be a problem to mark both of the PL OK as they are.

Well, these two long sections have been ready to edit for awhile.
Other deadlines always seemed to impinge, but here is the first section.

I'll take care of the little edits for the others, and then work on the long final piece.

I've been searching for a better venue to record the Hound of Heaven, but I may have to settle for something suboptimal.

Here is the long concluding section and the Hound. It is not the quality I was hoping for, but it will have to do. There is a lot of audio distortion and a few awkward edits.

I have the minor corrections for the dedication and Section 50 which I will edit tonight.
