thank you, Patrick. I was looking forward to this poem and you read it very well :thumbs: Wow what a massacre on that day :shock: Didn't think it would turn out that gruesome.

Textually all perfect, but I have a few notes concerning some lengthy pauses. If you could down your breaks a bit in the following places, this would make the flow of the story better. Any pause over 2 seconds feels very long for a listener, and one gets thrown out of the story, which would be a bit of a pity here ;)

So this is what I would suggest to correct, nothing else. Best to start with the final PL note, then the time stamps will stay the same ;)

> at 0:01: 3 seconds are too long to start. Please reduce to 0.5 to 1 second maximum
> at 0:31: between "1388" and "in the times...": lengthy pause
> at 1:31: between "mountains of Cheviot" and "within days three": lengthy pause in the same sentence
> at 3:34: I' the bounds of Tivydale – this is the abbreviation for "in", not the pronoun "I"
> at 9:35: between "a large cloth-yard and mair" and "two better captains": lengthy pause
> at 10:13: between "they were wet" and "there was never a freke": lengthy pause
> at 12:45: "i' faith, should never be" – also here it means "in faith"
> at 12:58: between "Cheviot within" and "God have mercy": lengthy pause
> at 13:51: between "battle of Otterbourn" and "at Otterbourn began": lengthy pause

and finally, since you have to reupload anyway, please change the filename number to only double digits "49", not "049". We have less than 100 sections here, so 2 numbers are enough

Thank you, great job. Only these few cuts to make and then we're ok.

thank you for the fast turn-around, Sarah, now that we are approaching the end of the project :9:

This sections was beautifully narrated, lovely to listen to. I only have one tiny note to add:

> at 4:05: (p. 176) you forgot the short footnote here. In the second post I mentioned that I want all the footnotes included in this project. Could you please add the underlined sentence, this way: "the land of the Britons – Footnote: Welsh – End of Footnote – was under his sway"

the rest is perfect, thanks !

Here are my sections, Sonia; apologies for the delay, but I made the new deadline as promised. :)
yay, thank you, Tomas. :9: Better late than never, as I say. But I'm glad they're in now, as the project is rapidly nearing to the end.

All sections PL ok. Especially King Henry was awesomely portrayed. But I also loved the despair of little Arthur. I will now assemble all the remaining plays. I have prepared them all, so only need to insert your parts.

Jim: stay ready for a final PL :)

Section 54 is fine, except for the omission of a phrase at 10:06. Otherwise, PL OK. Section 41 is PL OK. And but for a few noises (4:22, 4:40, 5:10), so is Section 8. Jim :thumbs:

thank you, Jim. :9: The few noises are ok, they are difficult to take out, and they are not too disturbing for me at least.

What exactly is missing at 10:06 in Section 54 ? :hmm: I checked just now and I really don't see anything that would be missing. Could you tell me the exact sentence you mean maybe ? That would save me from chasing around to find the error ;)
