I have a small suggestion to improve Act 2:

> at 2:21: (p. 26) "for my writings, you know, have fared but ill hitherto" – you say "fard", which doesn't make sense in context (it should rhyme on "scared", "dared")
:hmm: I swear I caught that during recording already, but I seem to have cut out the wrong instance... Anyway, here he is, still complaining:

awww I love the final romantic duet :9: who would have thought this ending which began so snappishly in Act 1 ;) well characterised Devorah, I really enjoyed this part. She could have had a bigger role.

All PL ok

thanks

thank you, Alan, a very amusing Punch-performance, especially the wife-abusing song :lol: Loved the sing-song, but I hope Joan will stay in sync with you there.

Nearly perfect, but you forgot two Omnes lines:

> at about 6:20: (p. 66) please insert: "Long live Henry I, King of Bantam" and "Huzza"

The other Omnes line on p. 67 is clearly not meant for Punch, so you don't have to record that one.

Thanks

Sonia
