Christiana Act 1
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/squire_christianahaggerston_1_128kb.mp3 9:37 :D
a wonderful performance, Linda, I simply knew that Christiana was a perfect choice for you :9: I love the accent you are doing here, wow, wish I could speak like that 8-) The dialogue between Izod and Chris will be excellent.

I only found one missing line. Yes I know the Gutenberg script is rather messy :? I just hope I didn't miss anything else.

> at about 6:03: missed line: "I'm close at hand if you want me, Squire. Here's Gilbert!"

thank you, looking forward to the rest !

Here is Felicity. I gave you both a sung and a spoken version of the song in Act 2. Hopefully I didn't miss any snippets.

Poor girl. It's a shame her story ended here where it did. Oh well. I will invent a happy ending for her, a year or two hence.

yes, I think pimping her to the butler was really a bit too much :evil: and asking for the ear-rings, what a rotter ! Good riddance, I'd say.

The song is lovely, Devorah. So you invented the tune ? It's cool. As far as I can see, no parts are missing so all PL ok. I loved the emotional parts very much. :9:

Thank you

Sonia

Yes, the natural rhythm of the poem seemed to suggest it. I also wanted something with kind of a country lilt, as I thought that's the kind of song she'd be most likely to know.
