Here is Section 39:
My computer man was able to find (with help from Internet discussions) a way around the fact that the most recent Mac upgrade does not sync with Audacity.
glad to hear you're back in the game. :9:

And thank you for the rather gory battle-field description. :? This section was a bit hard to swallow, but it's PL ok. Thanks for plodding through it.

Have a nice weekend

Sonia

Let's try section 104 again, this time with all the editor's foreword (and a length of 24:02):

I have redone the whole editor's part, just so that you know. :D
Cheers,

ah thanks for telling me, so I re-listened to the entire editor's intro now and all is PL ok. And wow this was an interesting part of the chapter, good thing we included it. 8-)

thank you

yay indeed, and I listened to them all now in a row. :9: Excellent epics, all of them. The stories of Rorik and Uffe were wholly new to me, but Balder's and Grendel's demise I knew of course. Wonderfully narrated, all of them. Loved the voices you're giving the characters, especially poor Hrothgar :lol: he sounds like the weakling he is always portrayed to be. Somehow I never really liked Hrothgar, he didn't strike me as a forceful king, rather hoping that others would do the dangerous work for him.

Sections 48 and 49 are already marked PL ok.

I have two small edits to note for the other two sections:

for Section 7:
> at 12:28: “this recording is in the public domain” – you say “this work” but this is an optional change, as it’s basically the same. It would only be for consistency’s sake, but I leave it up to you. Just let me know if you changed anything or not.

for Section 50:
> at 9:40: (p. 253) “what he had consigned long ago to earth” – I hear “conquered” if I’m not mistaken, which is a change of meaning here

thanks, Philip, great job. Happy to have you in this project. 8-)

Not my best of best, but well, it's finished :) There are some plosives, I know, but I thought they weren't too bad, so I left them.

thank you so much, Monika !!! I think it is nicely read and the plosives are really not that disturbing. Interesting section, the photograph looks a bit creepy, but old pictures often do.

Only one small note, quickly corrected:

> from 0:17-0:21: this pause is a bit too long between intro and story, could you trim this down a few seconds please ? I was wondering what happened till you started speaking again

The rest is flawlessly read. :thumbs:

Thank you

Sonia

thank you, Chris, well, better late than never :D and your section is beautifully narrated and I love your husky voice. :9: it suits the story of the Vikings and pirates well. :mrgreen:

The text itself was flawlessly read, but I have a small note concerning the footnote:

> at 0:49: (p.87) to highlight the footnotes in this project, could you please say it the following way (as was described in the second post under special notes) : “along the coast of Serkland – Footnote: Northern Africa. End of footnote – and came to an island....”

thank you

Sonia
