Here is Ludovico, a really fun part to play! :lol: :twisted:
thank you, Rémi, that was fast !!

:lol: "'Tis a great Fatigue to oblige the whole Sex." I had to laugh when you said that. I'm not sure I pity you :mrgreen:

Nicely played, and yes, I think our rendez-vous scene will sound quite great when assembled. You veer between attack and reticence, which is tantalizing. And the final scene when he gets caught by the husband in bed you completely change your character and become more whimsical. :thumbs: Well done. He is not the cool stallion he thinks he is. :lol: Loved it !

I also liked the little tune you sang. Is it a melody you made up on the spot ? Because we need to make sure it's in the public domain, so no famous songs !

Acts 2-5 already PL ok.

One missed line in Act 1:

> at about 1:52: please insert: "Oh! what News from your Lady?"

Thanks

Sonia

Glad it pleases you! I enjoyed recording it :D

Yes, the little tune is of my invention, I abandon all my rights on it :wink:

Here is the corrected act 1 (now 3:57):

Rémi, we will have a steamy scene together :mrgreen: looking forward to your part in it.

In the meantime, Todd, here is love-hungry, unfaithful Lady Pizalta. I loved panting my way through half of act 2 :lol: though I noticed that panting isn't good for the vocal chords in the long run. :? I bet when you listen to this performance, you are happy you're not the husband this time. :mrgreen:

Now I need to put my head in a bucket of cold water before I tackle the next recordings...

Well, I never expected this from you. Kitty? - Ha! Full fledged CAT would be more appropriate a name now.

Act 1, Act 3, Act 4, Act 5 PL OK

Act 2 - 0:06 Missed first line (probably your glasses were steamed over in anticipation...): Did you deliver my Letter to Ludovico, Lucy?

Thanks, Todd

I like the ending where you get enraged by Bassino's treacherous letter. :thumbs: great emotions.

Only at one point you misspronounce Placentia if I'm not mistaken:

> at 4:29: "in sending for Placentia" - I think you say "Palentia". Could you maybe check please ?

Thanks

Sonia

Armando act 4 revised

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/perjurdhusband_armando_4.mp3

As well as role I am also recording a role (D'Antin) in a play called Armand. I could get the two characters confused :lol:

I am sure that the authors conspired to use similar character names purely to confuse you....

Thanks, Todd
