I hope you managed to disentangle them again, or kept your old files to use.
Yes, the original files on my work computer were still ok. Only the copies on the flash drive were messed up. I am now even sorry I deleted those pieces of computer-generated art... :)
Here are sections 90 (duration 15:48) and 91 (duration 2:34)

Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

Sonia, Section 1 is PL OK. But cossacks in my recording cubby? Unsettling to say the least! :shock:
thank you, Jim, you posted when I was already in bed, but I saw the message.

Did you manage to get the cossacks our of your recording studio again ? :lol:

Also thanks for your sections, and also Kristine ! Will PL soon :)

Section 99 - The Muezzin. Time 2:54
https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume06_099_tappan_128kb.mp3
thank you, Alan for this excellent performance as muezzin :thumbs: although I had a bit of mixed feelings when I heard this, as the muezzin was the cause for many an interrupted sleep during my travels through Turkey. :? There always seemed to have been a minaret close by our hotel somehow.
Having worked in the Middle East and become familiar with call to prayer I tried to reproduce the sound and intonation of the real thing even though I was saying it in English. Sorry if it brought back bad memories.

Allah Akbar (as it should be)

nah, don't worry about it. Your intonation was spot on and I enjoyed it very much.

Here are Sections 7 and 9:
more warfare, although I must say the thought of two enemy armies fleeing simultaneously from one another was strangely entertaining :lol: The Tartar spies must not have been up to their task or they would have noticed the retreat of the Russians and given the counsel to cross the river. Who knows how history would have been changed then. :hmm:

Both sections PL ok, very interesting to listen to. Thanks !

indeed, could have been a good example for our blooper thread :lol:
Here are sections 90 (duration 15:48) and 91 (duration 2:34)
phew, this section where they sought shelter in the Hagia Sophia, trusting on divine help, and then got taken prisoner, was very tragic to listen to :(

Both sections beautifully read, despite the gruesome topic. Section 91 is already PL ok.

one small note for Section 90:

> at 2:47: (p. 481) “and the deficiency of art” – I think I hear “defiency” :hmm:

thanks

thank you, Foon. All 4 beautifully narrated and very interesting to listen to. I especially liked the Magyar poems. :9:

When they mentioned the "current" czar in the historical note, I was reminded that the book was from 1914, and this was only shortly before the Russian Revolution which cost this same czar his life. :? To think that the editor had no idea about this fact when she compiled the book....

Sections 36, 77 and 106 are already PL ok.

one PL note for Section 109:

> please say the full disclaimer at the beginning

thank you !

In so little space, so much history. Perfect rendering. Section 002 est parfait! :clap:
