Here are my readings:
thank you, Algy, what an interesting voice you gave the captain here. He sounds almost breathless, it was quite a surprise when you started. But I like it and you keep the character up throughout the play :thumbs: Nice choice to make him unique.

Acts 1 and 3 are straight PL ok

One small note for Act 2, optional though:

> at about 1:04: missed ALL line: "Christ is God, the one true God." Yes, I noticed later that you recorded the ALL line separately, but you have a totally different voice there, a very forceful bass voice. I don't think anybody would think this is the captain speaking, but it was supposed to be the people present speaking. Still, as I said, optional because in merging voices I guess they are hard to differentiate anyway later on. I just wanted to mention it, in case you want to step back into the captain persona for this one sentence as well then you can include it straight into act 2 (easier for Todd). If not, I can also mark this one as ok. Just let me know :)

thank you

Sonia

Hi Kitty, Thank you for the info. I decided to record it again because of the missing line but its good to know not to do that in future. Here is the link to the newly edited file for Act two which fixes the issue you identified.

yes definitely ! For one single sentence there is no need to re-record it all. For long sections, editing is always the better option and less time consuming.

so this time you only spot corrected, right ? PL ok then :) wohooo, your first PL ok section :clap:

excellent, thank you again. Also here I have a few small notes to edit for you, not as many as the first time, you are definitely starting to get the hand of it. :thumbs:

Only the following three bits need to get added:

> at about 0:47: missed line: "Luis, aside"

> at 1:50: "and finds beneath it a skeleton" – you say "finds it beneath" – which is a change of meaning

> at 3:23: "Luis, aside" – you need to include the name here
only the first act left to do.
yes it was good you kept that one for last, because the first act is always a bit trickier because of the cast list. So it's good you got a bit of practice with the two other acts already.

First a question for Todd: do you want the long introduction text included as well ? What about the dedication to Aubrey de Vere ? :hmm:

Now for the castlist: please start with "Persons", then record all the characters including the entire character description, in the order in which they are listed in the text. Read them like this:

"Egerius, King of Ireland, read by" (no need to add a name, it will be done by the reader)
"Patrick, read by"
[and so on through the entire list]

careful when "groups of people" are mentioned in the list, you see here for example "two peasants", "attendants", "friars" etc Each of them need their own voice credit, so read them separately. For that it's best to check the Magic Window, where Todd has listed all the characters. Here you will see:

"First Canon, read by"
"Second Canon, read by"

You'll also see that the attendants and peasants are not mentioned that means they have no speaking roles and therefore you need not include them in your list.

At the end of the cast list, also include your own voice credit like this: "Stage directions, read by Tchaikovsky"

And also don't forget the scene setting: "The Scene passes in Ireland, in the Court of King Egerius, and other parts."

That's the special rules for the cast list. After that, it's like any other act, just read everything you can find for the narrator to read.

I do not want the long introduction. It is interesting but about a number of plays, not just this one.

I do want the Dedication to Aubrey.

Thanks, Todd

Hello Kitty and Todd,
I have re-edited Act 3 so all should be correct

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/purgatoryofstpatrick_narrator_act3_128kb.mp3

Here is my first stab at Act 1 I hope that I remembered everything.

absolutely great :thumbs: you are definitely getting the hang of it here. Act 3 is expertly edited, so PL ok now. :)

For Act 1 I only found two missed bits which need to get inserted:

> at 2:48: "King, furious" – king needs to be added, as it's at the beginning of the speech

> at about 3:23: missed line: "He throws Patrick on the ground and places his foot upon him."

Really good job, Tchaikovsky, thank you so much.
