I do apologize - it was an editing error. Another character (the Duke) read the same passage and I inserted the wrong one. No offense or comment on your performance was intended. I am re-editing Act I right now based on this and other comments and I'll have a cleaner version for PL shortly.
Hi Mark
Checking back to the Gutenberg text I can see how it could be misinterpreted as saying that all 5 characters should do all the lines of the song. Perhaps that is why Todd read all the lines and not just the refrain. :hmm:
Thanks. It is difficult to edit these dramatic works, I tried it once and gave up.
No problem. Thanks for pointing it out. A revised Act I is already up.

PL notes for act 1
There are only 2 places where a little editing may be needed
about 43:20 there is a short bit a background womans voice behind don Alambra
And at 45:46 there's an extra repeat of tis a glorious thing to be a royal queen.
Neither of them are earth-shattering.
It all sounds great.

Of course I won't be able to stop singing it for days :D

I made the edit at 43:20, but there is a repeat of the Queen chorus before the stage direction, so I left that in.
This is my first time editing a play, and overall it's not been too terrible. Now I've been through it once, I think Act II will be a breeze (about 1/3 done at this point).

Fantastic - sounds good
Now to work out the cataloguing - I haven't done a play for a long time.

Many thanks to Annise and Mark for finishing this :clap:

It is nice to think that Beth's hard work will end up in the catalogue :thumbs:
