Looks like I am going to have a lot more time for recording in the next few weeks.
The voices are too similar for these two parts, but as they are not in the same scene I'm hoping it's OK. No problem to re record. I am trying to get back into the wing of it.
thank you Craig, and I'm happy to hear back from you. I hope all is well with you and your family.

Northumberland is perfectly PL ok, but concerning Bushy, there is the problem that Brad has been assigned this part. You were supposed to be reading Bagot for this particular Scene. :? So unfortunately this file cannot be used as we already have Brad's performance. Sorry about that. :(

Now your file overwrote Brad's file...I will change that back.

thank you Craig, these are all wonderful. I especially liked Scroop, he had a bit of a shifty voice :lol:

they are all PL ok, except Carlisle where you missed a part:

My lord, wise men ne'er sit and wail their woes
But presently prevent the ways to wail
To fear the foe, since fear oppresseth strength,
Gives in your weakness strength unto your foe,
And so your follies fight against yourself.
Fear, and be slain; no worse can come to fight:
And fight and die is death destroying death;
Where fearing dying pays death servile breath.

thank you

Sonia

I love the accent. Carlisle is in Wales right ? Right next door to you, so you probably know the lingo :mrgreen:

Both PL ok. I love the scene where Carlisle really keeps faithful to the king against all odds. A courageous man

thank you

The first attempt at the last bits.
I also need to do the credits. Did we script this or should I just make it up?

Hope everyone is coping.
We are are only allowed out of our homes for specific purposes.
Fortunately I have 9 bottles of beer to keep me going.
Chins up!

excellent, and PL ok, all of them :clap: I especially loved the squeaky voice of Surrey :lol: he is definitely memorable. But Northumberland's calm voice is very soothing, loved that one very much too.

thank you, Craig, and wishing you a good weekend

Scene 5.1. is now ready to edit. Any takers, please notify in the thread ? I would prefer someone else assemble, then my own parts could get PLed as well.

thanks

thank you :9: I'll make a note, so the work won't be done double. Could you also PL my two parts then with the text, while you're at it ?

excellent Craig, thank you so much for the fast work. Both PL ok. And I am relieved to hear that my dialogue with myself has voices sufficiently different, thanks to the impossible French accent of the Queen :lol:

Only one thing for future consideration:

> from 0:18-0:22: before Act 5, scene 1: this pause is too long. 1.5 seconds is fully enough, best never get over 2 seconds. No need to reupload now, I cut the silence a little bit and reuploaded. It will get checked one last time anyway, so there is no worry :)

thank you

Sonia
