thank you, Alan. In this last scene Pylades is so insistingly dutiful to save Orestes, I love the effort you put in there. :thumbs: Very well done, and PL ok. That concludes Pylades for this play.

Thank you, Sonia!
I was worried about "alas" because I listened it together with your words after it and thought "alas" was not becoming)

no, she says it after Andromache kinda hints that she would die soon, so "alas" is quite an appropriate answer. At least in Racine's mind. :mrgreen: Nowadays we probably would say a bit more after such an announcement.

:D I like you humor) I tried to convey a regret of this sad piece of news that you dear friend decided to die.
My worries were related to the rate: my "alas" is very slow comparing to Andromache's speach. I should have listened to it first. Will the rate become more even after editing?

not sure what you mean by "rate" :hmm: I don't mind if your cadence is slower than mine. Each temperament is different and some parts also ask for more speed than others. I think it will sound great later on. I often marvel how the assembled piece sounds so much better than each of us alone. You'll see when you hear the finished play. ;)

you're doing fine, don't worry :) anyway, we still have to wait for our Orestes to come in, so there is still some time.

Act 5 is now PL ok

I have two small notes for Acts 2 and 4 still though:

Act 2:
> at 6:03: (p. 143) "whose worth I could not but esteem" - I hear that you re-did the sentence but I still hear "wrath", which is a totally different word.
"Worth" rhymes with "birth"

Act 4:
> at 5:45: (p. 172) "till he sees me again" - you forgot "again" - this may be optional, but the meaning is a bit different, so if you don't mind, you could correct that as well. The rest of the speech was excellent and insistent though :thumbs: well done

thanks

Sonia

Hi
Okay I get and apologise for how frustrating it must have been to work with me, I am so so sorry, I have been very irresponsible, I hope that this is for the last time that I send you the updated recordings. Thank you for being so very patient.
