Darnley; or The Field of the Cloth of Gold by George Payne Rainsford James (1799 - 1860).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/darnley-by-george-payne-rainsford-james/

A stranger rides across the Kentish countryside when his attention is called to a cottage where violence is being done to an elderly couple. The knight, for such he appears to be, rushes to their aid. Soon after, the strange and prophetic Sir Cesar appears on the scene and foretells of danger ahead. We follow this knight as he encounters an evil landowner; the good and faithful Longpole, son of the elderly couple; the beneficent Duke of Buckingham--or is he a traitor?; and the coquettish Lady Katrine. He is reunited with his kindly but naif old tutor and a childhood companion, now grown into the beautiful Lady Constance. How will each help or hinder him in obtaining his goal of an audience with King Henry VIII and gaining back his ancestral home for his disgraced father and himself? A tale spanning the courts of Henry VIII of England and Francis I of France, the climax comes at the famous meeting between the two monarchs on 'the Field of the Cloth of Gold'.( Lynne Thompson)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Sections 7, 8, & 11 are PL OK!

Section 9 has a repeat @ 9:21 "nor stood...nor stood still", and an errant sound at 28:44 (like a small bit of an edit didn't get all that was being clipped out).

Section 10 has a repeat @ 11:23, "but...but this..."

I'm listening through the rest, but wanted to get this batch's notes posted!

Hmm... my copy has the edit. So I deleted both previous versions from the server and started afresh. Hope that works now.
