thank you, April, exellent start in your contributions for this book. I have never read Romola by George Eliot, but it sounds like it's a good book. I'm sure it's already done for LV though
Kudos for getting you tongue around the many Savaronola's in the chapter
not easy to pronounce. I also like your gruff speech for Piero in the end
A typical Italian.
I have three small notes for you to consider this time:
> from 0:30-0:34
of “the burning of the vanities, by George Eliot” – you can cut these 4 seconds out
, we only need the title once, the second one is the correct one, where you include the date 1497
> at 10:27
: (p. 60) – “There is a little too much shouting of
” – yours sounds more like “and
viva guess who
” – Gesu is simply pronounced like Jesu
. In a previous sentence you said it correctly. Could you please maybe re-do this sentence to make it more clear ?
> at 12:37
: (p. 61) – “Talk of heresy
, indeed” – you say “hear-say”, but he means “her-e-sy
” here in this context
The rest is fine. Just the sound was not the same as your usual sound, did you record in another room maybe ? It is slightly more echoey.
Not disturbing, but I was wondering why.
