Here is Section 35:

The river Moldau referred to in the text now lies in the Czech Republic and is known as Vltava. It is the subject of a work by Smetana which has become the most famous piece of Czech music.

Hey Algy, the overall text of this section is great, no issues! But, the very beginning on the intro misses the 0.5 ~ 1 seconds of silence as well as the letter "S" of Section four, so the text is "Section four..." and I hear "Ection four".
I'm afraid you must've cropped it a bit too much at the beginning. Please address this, and upload it again. :D

Best,
Ana :mrgreen:

This section is PL ok, good job!

I had the opportunity to go on a cruise on Vltava last year. Smetana's piece is as majestic as the river and all the Czech architecture surrounding it!

One YouTube commentator made the quip that an army of extra terrestrials was gathering to blow the earth to smithereens. However, they happened to hear Smetana's piece playing and decided that the Earth was saving after all.

Great work though it is, I am always amused by the two crashing chords at the end - does that represent a customs official at the border shutting the window of his booth?

Section 26 has a footnote. Should this read word-for-word as the following? "The Lord of Lords. Footnote: Written in August, 1884. End of footnote. We are in the midst of a political crisis," etc. Or is there another preferred wording?

That's right after the title.
Personally I would not say footnote but just the "written in August, 1884", possibly with a little change of voice.

But it's up to you, what you prefer.
Cheers,
Ava.

Ah, now that I think about it, it does make more sense to leave out "footnote." Thanks!
