Barbara:

Hi! Once again, I really enjoyed your reading.

There were just a couple of small things....

The silence at the beginning was about 4.5 seconds (instead of .5-1)

At 15:12; there is a phrase..."for the most part however." For some reason, the word "however" sounds as if it has been clipped in the middle....I tried listening to it through a couple of sets of headphones and speakers....

At 22:26 I heard "than any other." The text is "than we like any other"

At 23:43 I heard "in the division of books." The text is in the subdivision of books"

Handle is one of my favorites (although I am disappointed the author has such sour opinion of Beethoven). :)

Nicely done.

Philip

Thank you Philip. That's very encouraging. I have fixed the errors.


You might be amused to hear a song by the music hall performer our author refers to in reference to Beethoven's theme:

Barbara:

I apologize profusely for my mistyping of Handel. :oops:

The sound errors are fixed perfectly. The silence at the beginning needs to be shortened to between one half to one second and then it's there!

I enjoyed the audio clip. When I viewed it, up came some clips from Florrie Ford. (I use take me back to dear old Blighty when I teach the history of The Great War. I bet I can find a way to work this one into my lectures on the 1890s some way. Thanks so much for sharing.

Philip

Errr yeah, Carolin, but I misread 5 secs for 0.5 secs. I'm uploading the 0.5 sec file as I type.


Philip, your courses sound interesting - no songs like the old songs...


Best,

Barbara

Hi Carolin,

Just 'Matthew' would be fine, and no blog or website. I know these are proof-listened, but because will be a first for me any constructive feedback on editing, pacing etc would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi Carolin,

I'm over-committed at the moment but, as the project is moving slowly, it's probably safe to put my hand up for Section 20 (Written Sketches Part I).


Best,

Barbara
