thank you, Linda and great to have you back on our virtual stage a worthy comeback with Modesta. Wow I loved the irate speech she does in the middle to give the boys hell and quite meeker with the hermit laterEalswythe wrote: ↑August 11th, 2020, 2:27 pmHere's Modesta, Act 1:
I have a few corrections to note still here though:
> for the voice credit, could you please include the whole description, as in the MW: "Modesta, daughter to Donobert, read by..."
> at about 0:24: (p. 351) missed lines: "Necessity, it seems, ties your affections then, and at that rate I would unwillingly be thrust upon you; a wife is a dish soon cloys, sir."
> at about 0:49: (p. 352) missed lines: "There shall be place to neither, noble sir; I do beseech you, let this mild reply give answer to your suit: for here I vow, if ever I change my virgin name, by you it gains or loses."
> at 1:35: (p. 353) optional pronunciation: "if only speech distinguish us from beast" - I think "onely" is rather an old spelling of "only"
> at 3:03: (p. 356) "your prayers are the same orisons which I will number" - yours sounds more like "horizons" but I think she means the prayer (orison) here, again probably an old way of spelling it. This changes the meaning, so I would opt to correct it
thank you, looking forward to finding out more about Modesta's fate...
