I went out on a limb here, and actually sang the Caravan song in a sort of stentorian voice! Didn't attempt the elves' dirge, though - too solemn. Will happily re-record if it's too much.


Thank you so much! Great job with these lines, you are a natural!

0:03 I'd prefer the voice credit to say "Second courtier," instead of "Another Courtier." I realize that that it how it's written in the script, but I've made some slight changes, just because this script is so very inconsistent. When in doubt, always match what's in the MW. :)
0:21 At the top of page 239, there is a line that is simply labeled "Courtier," without specifying which one. (See what I mean about inconsistencies? :roll:) I think it makes most sense for the second courtier to speak this line. Will you add it please?
0:26 I listened to this song, even though I knew I wouldn't be able to use it. And I so wish I could! I love it! But, I do need it to be spoken, as I said. And yes, layering voices can be a real challenge, but it's worth it! It's time-consuming, but there is a way to match the tempos of each voice to make them more or less line up.

The rest is fantastic! I especially love what you did with the dirge at the end. :9:

you could use the song as outro to the whole thing, fading away.... ha!
Hope this is up to scratch.

Here is section 12 - 'Sentinel' and 'Two Others' -
I tried to vary the voices a bit - it seemed to me that each of the 'two others' comes from different spirits.
Anyway, here it is - coming in at 8:40 long :

Thanks, Doug! This is a great help! There are a couple of spots to correct.

6:22 Text here reads (p. 121): "To Taurus' skyey peak we clomb." Now, I think "skyey" may be a made-up word, or at least one I don't think I've ever seen or read before. In any case, I hear "skry," or something like it. Think you could have another go at this line?
7:55 Text here reads (p. 122): "...among a slavish horde." I hear "...among a lavish horde."
Both are good catches - I think I got 'skyey' correct this time, even though its still not quite a "real" word - I treated is as 'sky-ie' (sorta like sky-ish...).
You were right on with the 'Slavish' horde, that was a straight forward correction.

Here's the revised recordings. In both cases I re-recorded the entire line (I think I got a bit more expressive with the practice), but I didn't change any of the other lines in the recording. Its 8:49 long.
