Here's Dan'l Druce, act 1:
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/danldruce_danldruce_1_128kb.mp3 @ 16:19.
awww this is a wonderful portrayal Adrian :9: I simply had a hunch you'd be perfect in this role. I love the gruff voice you're doing here. :thumbs: Oh and the weeping was so heart-felt. A perfect run-through for this act, totally PL ok. Looking forward to the rest. Thanks for tackling such a big part.

Just out of curiosity: why did you leave 5 minutes of silence at the end ? :shock:

Thanks, Sonia, for your kind words. I certainly felt hoarse after reading that.
Oops about the silence. I usually trim the end and add 5s silence. I suspect my 5 was in the wrong place!

wohooo a great ending, Sir Jasper is atoning for his behaviour. Somehow he kept up with the booze all throughout the years :lol: probably to relieve his bad conscience. ;) Excellent job and all three acts PL ok. Thanks so much. This was a memorable performance.

Dan'l Druce, Act 2 for PL, @ 16:23
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/danldruce_danldruce_2_128kb.mp3
wohoo, emotions running wild in this act 8-) excellently portrayed, Adrian, thank you so much. I love the outburst of violence in the end and then the reversion to becoming a weak and saddened old man. :thumbs: (and you probably need some camomile tea now for your vocal chords)

PL ok

Sonia
