I'm glad to see this project taking off! Thank you for claiming. Yes, I discovered Six recently and Katharine Howard's song is a total jam!

Hi!

Here is section 15. You may find the latin more pig latin than it should be - let me know what I need to fix. It passed the checker anyway ....

Sort of timely for a British history lesson, eh? - Thanks, Suzanne

Thank you for section 15! It sounds great, and I appreciate your clear and measured reading style. I'm not worried about the Latin - Ford sure does like to drop untranslated Latin phrases in his work as if the typical reader knows it as fluently as he does! :lol: I have just a few notes:

- At 1:57, "it might consume the friar Forest," I hear "it might consume the prior Forest"
- At 2:36, "foul traitor!" you say "fool traitor!"
- At 26:24, "idle and gaping," I hear "idle and gamping"
- At 26:56, "not yet smell beastly of liquors," you say "not ye smell beastly of liquors"
- At 30:10, "And consider that we must bring," you say "And consider that we might bring"

Whew, I'm glad to hear about the latin!

I've made the corrections. Here's the updated recording: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/privyseal_15_ford_128kb.mp3 I might have accidentally added a second or two at the end so it's looking like 30:45 now.

Thanks,
Suzanne

Has section 11 been inadvertently moved? It is easy to drag sections out of place, but easy to move them back.
