Section 60 - Scots wha hae (time 2:07)
https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume10_060_tappan_128kb.mp3
Tune is traditional, as any Scot could tell you :lol:
ok I take your word for it, Alan ;) I didn't know the tune yet, but it sounds quite cool. I can't help smirking though, picturing Robert Bruce singing this on horseback to his troups :lol:

excellent job, yet again, thank you so much. And PL ok.

and last but not least, Jennifer, your three sections are also PL ok. Wow, the story of Queen Mary was extremely tragic :( And those bubbles in a way too, duping poor gullible people out of their hard-earned money. I think even nowadays such schemes are called bubbles, didn't know the word originated in these days already. The vicar of Bray at least was very funny. :mrgreen: It sounds excellent with the chorus repeated each time.

Flawless reading, thank you so much :) Just careful with the filename, "tappan" in section 70 is written with an 'e' accidentally. I will make a note, and change it in my folder, no need to reupload again.

s47 Disraeli - https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume10_047_tappan_128kb.mp3

14:40

Obviously written by a fan. The extract from Disraeli's speech on Irish 'victimhood' will make interesting, or perhaps provocative, listening.

indeed this was a fan :lol: and I loved the speech you delivered, you have great orator qualities as well :thumbs: this was highly interesting, and I am usually not a big fan of politics.

Thanks, it's PL ok :)

Section 19 - The song of the western men (time 2:36)

https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume10_019_tappan_128kb.mp3

Both words and tune of this song are attributed to Robert Stephen Hawker in 1824 but his version was probably based on an older traditional Cornish folk song.

I think Miss Burney was happy that they did not have to visit yet another college on that day :lol: wow I would so NOT want to be a lady in that train of royals. How uncomfortable.

Excellently read and PL ok, thank you, Jim :)

thank you, Alan for another great song :9: and yes I just listened to the Cornish song (in original) and the tune was slightly different but recognizably similar to have had a same source. I loved your version. :thumbs: It's PL ok.

Thanks again, Sonia! Inconsiderate royals to be sure, but ultimately she didn't seem to mind it so much. Strong woman! Jim :)

I always think that traditional folk songs were sung by people who were not trained musicians, had no written music and learn things by ear so their renditions would not always have been very accurate to the original. My efforts are my own improvisations on traditional tunes as I think many people's would have been. That, at least, is my excuse for getting so many notes wrong :mrgreen:
