And there's Act II, with revisions.

Length 3:46
Act 2 Narration is now PL OK! Many thanks!

Just a comment that it is easier for me if you use the same filename each time - that way the new file replaces the old (which is still stored on the server) but my Magic Window links still work! I've changed them now, so don't reupload, but in future it is easier to keep the filenames consistent so that the newest one is always on the top.

O.K., thanks for the tip! I'll do that in the future. And sorry for the inconvenience this time around.

No worries - also, now that I've listened to your recording as "Father" in the Railway Children, I've realised you are a great character actor as well! If you'd like to take a small part here, I don't mind if you overlap with the Narrator. You could read for either of the combined chorus Gondoliers, or Luiz if you like? Or even the Duke of Plaza Toro - he's a funny character but only appears in a couple of scenes.

Don Alhambra act 1

Thanks Alan, Act 1 is PL OK - please be careful about singing in the group scenes though. I don't mind if you sing your solos, but singing when it is supposed to be a quartet or more is very difficult to coordinate. I think I can manage with what you've done here, but in Act 2 please just read/recite for group songs.

Thanks Beth

My problem is that the music for this is so familiar that I find it hard not to burst into song, although I thought what I did was more like rhythmic chanting than actual singing. However I do take your point and will try to restrain myself in act two.

Thanks again for the chance to record this.

I hope I didn't miss any "All" lines, I found the script a bit confusing at times to figure out which lines were mine..

Love to have you read her! Please do the chorus and "All" lines as well as your individual lines when you are on stage.
