Psalm 9, 10: PL OK!
(I liked Psalm 10's rhythm: 6 iambs followed by 8 iambs - or whatever they're called. :))

Psalm 11:
0:42 - "But that in building they begun" - I hear "began" which breaks the rhyme

Psalm 12:
0:14-0:18 - long pause between title and psalm; seemed too long to me.
0:40-0:44 - longish pause

Psalm 13:
1:01 - "Still therefore, of thy graces" - I hear "my graces"

Psalm 14:
0:12 - do you say "Psalm 40" here rather than "14"? I can't tell for sure. :)
0:18 - "by flesh and fancy led" - I hear "faney" (bad type)
1:12 - "more then they now do brag" - I hear "more then then now"

Psalm 150: PL OK!

Thank you for paying careful attention to these, Tricia. As a christian, I certainly don't want to mangle holy scripture.
I'm finding the typography difficult to read in places.

Psalm 14: 1:12 - "more then they now do brag" - I hear "more then then now"
"more then" is what I see, but I wonder if it shouldn't be "more than".

I'm recording the corrections in the middle of heavy rain fall on the roof of my recording studio, more accurately known as the garden shed. Hopefully this is not apparent.

Thanks!

Regarding mangling Scripture: the Herberts did this already, to a point, so I'm not going for word-perfect here. :lol:
Psalm 149 is 1:49? Did you do that on purpose? :lol:

Listening should be in about... 4-5 hours. :)

Psalm 14: 1:12 - "more then they now do brag" - I hear "more then then now"
"more then" is what I see, but I wonder if it shouldn't be "more than".
Probably, but that might also be an Elizabethan spelling of "than". :roll:

Sounded fine to me; but then, I'm on earbuds with my husband on the other end of the sofa watching a YouTube video. :roll:

Psalms 11-14 spot PL OK.

Psalm 149:
0:33 - "Jacob, thou with joy relate / Him that hath reformed thy state" - I hear "thou will joy relate / To Him"
1:15 - "nations such as erst them pained" - i hear "nations shall"

I'm aware that there's some traffic noise in the background. Tricia, if you think it excessive, I'm happy to re-record at a quieter time of day.

Psalm 135:
1:53 - "He many nations" - I hear "So many nations"
2:51 - "Who though mouth, eye, and ear, and nose they were" - I hear "Who thought"

Psalm 136:
0:21 - "O Praise the God, all gods excels" - I hear "Lord"
Missing 5 seconds of silence at end

Psalm 137:
0:15-0:20 - long pause
0:43-0:47 - long pause
1:55-1:58 - long pause
2:21 - longish pause after poem, before "end of", then needs the 5 seconds at the end

I didn't hear any traffic noise. :)

Thank you, Tricia. I'm making a bit of a meal of this. Sorry about that. Here are those three and my last assignment.

Thanks. That was a pause for a passing vehicle, which I forgot to mark.
