Yes, I did, Eleonora, and I thought I had put it in the MW. :hmm: But I now see that it is not there. So sorry about that! I will fix it tonight and listen hopefully soon!

Thank you, Tchaikovsky! I really felt for the poor architect. To be set an impossible job is so disheartening. I don't think he gets in trouble for it, though, if I recall correctly. :) There are a few things to correct.

At the beginning, you don't need to give the name of the play, just the name of your own character. This is your voice credit, which will be listed with the rest of the characters to create our cast list. Also, there's no need for the act number. So please redo this beginning bit, and just read it as "Architect, read by Tchaikovsky."
3:18 Missing text (underlined), accidentally cut in editing maybe? P. 150: "Ah, me! What I'm to do, I cannot see. The window is a botch..."
3:23 Please add a space here for stage directions, after "my soul with awe."
3:30 The last line on this page (p. 150) is for "All the workmen," which would include your character: "The Sultan, with his son-in-law!"

Lovely! Thank you so much, I really enjoyed this! I think the Spider will give Aladdin's dungeon just the perfect air of loneliness and gloom. Great job with the crowd voices too! Definitely PL ok!

I did hear one thing that you may want to watch for in the future, although it's not enough to worry about here. Occasionally, I'm hearing a slight click. It sounds too loud to be a regular mouth click, like the kind of noise that saliva makes sometimes. It sounds more like something electronic, like the microphone cord is being wiggled loose. I don't know, of course, that's just what it sounds like to me. You can hear it several times during 1:50-2:08, if you want to know what I mean. Anyway, like I said, it's not bad enough to create a problem, but you may want to watch out in the future to make sure it doesn't get worse. :) Thanks again!

Thank you, AMB! Zephyr and Lympha will be so cute together! :9: Act 8 is definitely PL ok! (Not much to it, was there? :wink: ) Everything is there in act 7, but I have one optional note for you.

2:23 OPTIONAL pronunciation note. I bring this up mainly because it is a rhyming word, and the rhyme doesn’t come through with the mispronunciation. But it is up to you whether or not to correct it. P. 175: “To be wiser and sager…” The word “sager” is pronounced SAY-jer.

Here's the Second Elf!

Aww, this scene is so sad! :cry: Great job with it!

Will you please add "The Dirge of the Elves," p. 262? Sorry that I wasn't explicit about it, but I think all the Elves should speak it. Thank you!

Thank you so much. I have also reheard and actually, there is that strange little noise which I can not explain. Probably it was the way I was holding the Mic that time. thanks for letting me know. This increases my Librivox experience (I am quite new here).
Cheers
