Section 21:

That's a great overview of the whole work - it's a shame it's not at the start or end so that people would spot it without knowing it's there.

I've only got one comment on the reading:

11:31 repeated phrase "and serves as a pause before the grand denouement".

Cheers,
Paul

Thank you Paul! Fortunately that was a quick snip, so I've uploaded the correction :)

Thanks Tricia, yes, I am ready--it's now been exactly a week since my PM to the reader. I'll put you in, thanks! :D

Tricia and Kristine, here are the soundfiles for your German and French bits. So I understood this correctly, you both want to use this file ? Because I spoke it "normal fluently" as I would any text. If you want to copy it yourself, I can do it much slower so you understand the pronunciation better. Just let me know. :)

Tricia: I found a few obvious typos in your text, which I tacitly corrected, that it would be correct German ;)

Thank you! Yes, I want to just insert it into my recording. :) I would have to work for hours to pronounce such a long passage with any kind of coherence. :roll:

yes it wasn't the easiest of texts...Germans have a tendency to make huge convoluted sentences. :lol:

I bluffed my way through the Arabic names and the French. I did better with the Spanish, and I had help with the German. ;)

Section 18 PL OK

One tiny point is that at 4:02 you expand Mac. as Macedonian. My suspicion is that it should probably be Macnaghten (an earlier collator of the text), but it's just a side reference and Foon only asked for Standard PL so I wouldn't think it was worth correcting.

Great work on the German! :D

Cheers,
Paul

Million thanks!!! :9:
Now to the editing.
Foon, my file will arrive some time today. It is indeed time at last, thanks for the reminder as well.

K. :)
Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

...which means it's going to be just me and my slow editing holding things up. :(

Foon - if you want to get someone faster in to get it finished, I'll understand.

Cheers,

No worries! It's fine if it takes time, I just want to know that people are still working on it and not forgetting about it. :)
