Yes - long "a" with the stress on this syllable. Maybe that isn't the best way to write it, but I didn't want people to say it with the stress on the middle syllable! I'll put it into the pronunciation file when I make it today.

Male chorus template (both acts) and Japanese pronunciation file are uploading now. It's a bit rough, I've just bashed it out for pronunciation and timing - characterization is up to the individuals and around 10% difference in timing is OK, so don't feel too restricted to do exactly what I've done here!

Female chorus template will go up later today or tomorrow - some is the same but the women have a few other choruses.

Hi

When I try to access the male chorus template I get Error 404 Page not Found.
Pronunciation guide is ok.

I've looked in my folder and it's not anywhere there, think you will need to upload again

For some reason my internet connection is really slow at the moment and it timed out. I'm uploading again, but if it doesn't work in about 10 mins from this post it will need to wait until tonight.

EDIT: Done! That worked, I'm pretty sure!

This looks like a fun play, could I try the other chorus maiden please? :D

Thanks!

Welcome Rachel! Yes please, take the female chorus - when you do the voice credit it should just be "Female Chorus read by..." as the "A" and "B" are just so that the files have unique filenames!

Sorry to be a bore but the click on in MW to the male chorus template still does not seem to work.

Mmm, yes, Peter just messaged me the same thing. Try these links (same file, I hope one of them works!)

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/Mikado_mens_chorus_template.mp3

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/mikado_malechorus.mp3

File should be about 5 mins long.

Both of these work ok but they only seem to have act 1 not both acts as in MW.

Elizabeth,

1 How do you want "Tra la la, etc" to be handled?

2 There's a trio between Ko-Ko, Pooh-Bah, and Pish-Tush near the end of Act 1. Do you want the separate lines for each character to be separated by large gaps to help in editing?

The triad will not be simultaneous (can't hear the words) but will be done in sequence, so it will sound like three "verses" of the song. So please just record your section as one long poem - no gaps please!
