Section 18:
The dedication "For The Hospital" under the title is missing. Since there is a dedication of the poem, the subject of the poem's injunction to "give", it would probably be a good idea, after the Librivox intro, to reread the title "But The Greatest of These Is Charity" and then say "For The Hospital" before beginning the verses.
Second verse, first line - the word "wild" is missing.

Section 27: Right at the start of the recording, when the title is being read, I hear "But The Wayfarers", rather than "The Wayfarers".

Thanks,
Chris

A wonderful reading, Rachel. PL-OK

You've been on the stage, I'm thinking? I can tell. Perhaps you might care to take on a role or two in our Dramatic Section? We read our parts separately, and then they are assembled into the completed play.

A number of people are running plays and dramatic readings at the moment, but I would say that ToddHW has the most going at any one time. He displays them all at the bottom of his posts in the signature line.

The Dramatic Section forum is here: viewforum.php?f=27


Many thanks,
Chris
