hey Mark, great to have you read in here as well. I think this is your first participation in this series, so you can find all the special notes concerning disclaimer, footnotes etc, in the first two posts.

Thanks !

great performance, Eva :clap: wow, you gave quite a novel twist on Lady M.'s character. Here I can feel from your voice that although she is hell-bent on doing every dark deed, she still can feel remorse somewhere inside. She is not quite as callously sure of herself as she wants to be. I remember doing this particular ending scene myself in another project, and I made here quite remorseless and snake-like. Your performance is quite interesting in contrast. It does explain better why she would become crazy later on. This is what I so love about our plays, they often show me different takes of a role, which broadens my horizon. 8-)

Super well done, thanks for this. It will sound great assembled.

I do have two small notes to correct though:

> for the voice credit, since I need to paste them all together in one sentence, please say the following: "Eva Davis as Lady Macbeth" otherwise it will sound odd in the assembled sentence (see second post for clarification)

> at 6:11: (p. 250) "nor time nor place did then adhere" – you say "in here"

Thanks

Sonia

Just a little footnote omission, which I would like to have included:

> at about 3:31: you forgot the footnote for abthanes: "Footnote – Superior thanes, or gentry – end of footnote"

> from 8:34-8:37: between "upon his victims" and "from Rutherglen": the pause feels a bit overly long here
Here you go:

I chose to add the footnote to the end of the sentence, hope this still works.
New length: 11:17.
Cheers,
Ava.

I found a soundbyte on the pronunciation of 'bier', it does sound like 'beer'.

Made time to do one more section :lol: . One to go!

This would be uploaded except I recorded the voice credit wrong a second time. :lol: :roll:

I'm sure I'll succeed at it soon ...

yes, thank you, that works fine. Sometimes it's best not to interrupt the sentence too much. All PL ok now :)

yes it does, I knew that ;) so this is not a commonly used word in the English language ? :hmm:

and wow, great readings, both of them. Very lively and flawlessly narrated, I loved to listen to them. :thumbs: Already looking forward to the next section.

Before this can be marked ok though, I would like you to tweak the volume, as both files are above our accepted limit (86-92 dB). Do you use Audacity ? There is a plug-in for that program which calculates the gain you have to give your file to get inside the desired volume:
Replay Gain plugin for Audacity: - http://forum.audacityteam.org/download/file.php?id=4668

1. Save the file to your computer - your desktop or somewhere where you can easily find it.
2. Now browse to the folder in which Audacity is installed. It's probably in C:\Program Files\Audacity) and then open the Plug-Ins folder.
3. Drag the file you saved into the Plug-Ins folder.
4. When next you start up Audacity, you will be able to select the whole recording (Ctrl+A on Windows), then go to Analyze | ReplayGain, and it'll tell you how much to amplify your file to get to about 89 dB.
So for these files could you do the following please: decrease volume by -3 dB

Also, since you are reuploading anyway, please correct the file names. You wrote "worldhistory" instead of "worldstory". The safest way is always to copy/paste the example filename in the first post and then simply changing the ### for the section number ;)

Thank you !

Sonia

Section 113 - Men of Harlech (time 3:37)

https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume10_113_tappan_128kb.mp3

The tune is, as usual, my own improvisation on a well known traditional tune in this case first published in 1794 in "Musical relicks of the Welsh bards" although it is said to be much older 😺

As I have nearly finished my claims can I add section 112 Owen Glyndwr 😺
