The Duchess of Plaza-Toro:

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/gondoliers_duchess_1.mp3 3:49
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/gondoliers_duchess_2.mp3 7:21

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..
In Act 1, the very first scene when the Plaza Toro family first appears, can you please add in the "All" lines "if ever, ever, ever they get back to Spain..." Twice please.

@2:39 please don't say "etc", I need a repeat of the whole line as if you were saying it all again. In this case a full repeat of the verse directly above: "A tale so free from every doubt— All probable, possible shadow of doubt— All possible doubt whatever!"

In Act 2 there is just one "ALL" chorus missing:
@6:08 Is this indeed the King?, Oh, wondrous revelation!, Oh, unexpected thing! Unlooked-for situation!

Lovely reading! You've brought out all the humour in her - I especially love the line: I said to myself, "That man is a Duke, and I will love him." Several of my relations bet me I couldn't, but I did—desperately! :mrgreen:

Thanks, Beth! I'll try to fix these when I get over my cold--I definitely wouldn't be able to match my own voice right now :lol:

Here is my recording of section 23 - Fiametta Act 1:
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/gondoliers_fiametta_1.mp3 (9:32)
In Act 1 just two small edits (I've given them in the reverse order because if you edit from the end of the file forwards, the time stamps stay the same - they move if you edit from the start of the file. Sorry if you already know this!)

@4:40 there is a missed line for the Chorus: "Rapture! Rapture!" (This is the moment when the husbands catch the wives - exciting!)
@3:37 line should be "They undertake to marry any two of us they catch" (The men's chorus sings the "them" line.)

Act 2
@2:11 Right at the end, in the last chorus the name of the dance is "ca-CHU-ca"
@0:51 a chorus repeat is missing here (twice please) "They shall both go on requesting 'til you tell them, never doubt it! Everything is interesting, tell us, tell us all about it!"
Following on from this the whole "Cachuca" section of chorus is missing. Starts with "Dance a cachuca, fandango, bolero..."
@0:36, One line missing "Existence was slow and we wanted variety!"

Good work on finding the vast majority of the chorus lines! The formatting is tricky, but you got nearly all of them! :thumbs:

Act 1:
@10:18 Please give the full repeat, don't say etc. Line should be: "For everyone who feels inclined some post we undertake to find, congenial with his frame of mind, and all shall equal be."
@8:22 one chorus line missing: Sunlight takes the place of shade when you marry, merry maid!
@2:57 Line should be "They undertake to marry any two of us they catch!" (The "them" is for the men's chorus.)

Act 2:
@2:58 one line has reversed words. Should be "Free from this quandary contented are we." Please use two-syllables for "quan-dary" to make it rhyme with "gondolieri".
@2:18 Please give the full repeat, don't say etc. "She will declare to silver clarion's sound, the rightful king. Let him forthwith be crowned." And following, "Speak, woman! Speak!
@0:50 Please give the full repeat, don't say etc. "They will both go on requesting 'til you tell them never doubt it, everything is interesting! Tell us, tell us all about it!" Line is repeated twice.

Well done on finding nearly all the chorus lines! They are well hidden sometimes! ;) You only missed one line in both acts - sterling effort! :thumbs:

Next to the "post reply" button there is a little button with a drop down menu which will allow you to stop receiving emails every time someone posts to this thread. I usually PM all the readers when a project completes as it may be a while between when the first readers finish, and all the others and editing etc is done.

If it doesn't bother you to keep getting emails that's fine too!
