Stern Act 1

I saved it. Let me know if you want me to change anything.
Very expressive! I love the amount of menace you're putting into this!

For the next act, though, be sure to leave about 5 seconds of silence in between each of your segments of dialogue so we have plenty of space to cleanly slice out our edits.

Just one word missing. There's a line that reads "Hold!", in the recording it would go around 0:39, just before "Stern."
Could you add that and re-upload? Thanks!

Not sure how word-perfect it needs to be, but here are two points for reflection:

at around 2:23 text is "shame to yonder evil hearted hag", I hear "shame on you yonder evil hearted hag"

the second point is the pronunciation of the name Cecil, at around 2:34, which was suggested to be pronounced with the stress on the second syllable.

The first point is a misread and I will correct it.
On the other point, in England Cecil is usually a male name (the usual female form would be Cecilia) and pronounced as I did, both as a Christian and surname. Ce-CIL is really a French pronunciation and I personally doubt if a rough spoken character like the Constable would use it rather than the common English one. But as I have to amend the file anyway I may as well change it to what you want.

CE-cil was my first reaction to the name as well, but because it is the name of a female character here, we are going for ce-CIL, and, for consistency, thank you for changing it.

Hi, may I be Anthony Gabb?

Parsa.
Since you are new to LibriVox here are some general instructions borrowed from Sonia whom you will meet on other projects in the Dramatic Works forum:

The way to start is by doing a one-minute-test, to check your technical specifications. Someone will check it and give you feedback or advice if needed.

Here are a few special guidelines for drama recording, which differ a bit from our ordinary projects in the forum:

1) you don't have to read an intro or outro disclaimer, this will be done by the narrator. Instead, record your voice credit at the beginning of the file, which would be something like: "Stern, follower of Matthew Hopkins, read by xxxxx" (whatever you want your reader name to be).

2) then browse through the text and record all the lines you have to speak. It may not be necessary to read the whole play, but getting familiar with the plot and especially what the others are saying around you are essential, so you can better "react" to them and act out. Just be as expressive (according to the character) as you can in your role.

3) if there are pointers in the text qualifying your voice, like [laughs] or [whines], an added bonus would be that you act those out in your reading, if possible, to make it all more interesting.

4) and most importantly: please leave enough space between each of your speeches, preferably ~5 seconds. Even when you have the stage directions in the middle of your speech (for example: [sits down]), also leave ~5 seconds of pause there, because our editor later on has to copy all your parts and paste them into their master file and it's helpful if they have enough space to fiddle with

Have fun!! :D
