thanks Craig !!! it could very well be that I overlooked a typo while preparing the google sheets :oops: :oops: thanks for being extra vigilant. If it doesn't make sense, chances are high it's a typo :mrgreen:

I will check your part later on, stay tuned !

My first poem.

Just because it doesn't make sense to me doesn't mean it's wrong.

but: if with another spelling it makes more sense, we could safely say it might be more correct :wink:

After I've listened to your part, I'll let you know whether your hunch was good :mrgreen:

thanks for the first poem !!!!

oh I just noticed the file name is missing the two 00, since this project has over 100 sections. Could you re-upload with the James Bond number please ?

thanks

:lol: I see you haven't lost your sense of humour. We wanted to go easy on you to save your voice for the Ancient Mariner later on :mrgreen:

well I guess you wouldn't believe me if I told you you had 5 errors in Puck's "speech" :mrgreen:

no, jokes aside, Puck's sentence has been done very memorably :thumbs: and flawless. PL ok for that one.

As for the essay, also beautifully narrated, it was interesting to listen to. :9: And "finger" was the right guess, because I checked with the original scan. Actually when in doubt, you can also refer to the book you know, as it's the same link than the other poems.

I only found one wrong sentence, which you could maybe re-do:

> at 5:07: "you more than see it, you feel it too" - you said "must", but "more" here makes a stronger emphasis for the comparison with "see" and "feel" here

the rest is perfect. Thanks

two more from me. I loved doing a highly dramatic rat for the Pied Piper :mrgreen: but the lame child's speech was so sad I had a hard time not sobbing aloud. :cry: I think you hear my voice breaking a bit, but I left it in, as I think it fits quite well. This is probably how a bereft child would speak.

and the next couple. Leanne, Jason and Craig, as you may have noticed, Tomas and I made a decision, how to include the side-notes from the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, so that they wouldn't break the flow of the poem too often. We decided to bunch them up for each Part and read them as a sort of intro at the beginning. Now that I recorded them, I actually think it will work well. :) I am guessing this poem will be over 30 minutes long :shock: good luck to Craig who offered to do the bulk of it.

here's a short DR part. This is Titania for the Fairies' Lullaby. Will you be deciding on a nice song together (Leanne, Tomas and Craig) ?

A little panic when I thought you had me down for a song by Ariel, before realizing there were two Tempest poems one after the other and mine was the second.

:lol: I can feel your relief. Just a question: is this link supposed to be the Tempest poem ? Because that would be Number 19 and without "craig" in the filename, as it's a Solo. I fear now you have overwritten your Culprit Fay part, which was Number 16. :( you need to re-upload both in this case.
