May I claim
18: How the doges of Venice were chosen, from the old chronicles
and
129 How Portugal opened commerce with India (1498), by Jules Verne ?
glad you take part in this book as well, Angelique :) Unfortunately, Lynda claimed section 18 right before you, but section 129 is definitely yours. Enjoy

thank you

Sonia

thank you, Leni :9: yes, these will be a bit of a home-terrain for you. We're slowly getting over the Atlantic in the series. But first there is still a bit of Europe to cover.

And Jim, thanks also for your sections. Will try to PL them all today. (I have quite a backlog right now :? )

excellent, Nemo, thank you !!! I love the barely suppressed rage of Gregory in the Verona street scene. But the archbishop is simply too funny :lol: you give him a sort of over-eagerness in his voice, it really sounds as if he was a fan, thrilled to the utmost to meet the world-famous Joan of Arc now. :mrgreen: And Joseph finally has a bit of a smirk which I like too, especially the hypocritical lines where he dislikes the poems in his aside but caters to Richelieu's vanity right in the next sentence. :thumbs:

Gregory and Archbishop already PL ok.

For Joseph, there's one small note:

> at 0:05: (p. 249) “methinks your cheek” etc, can be cut out, this is Richelieu still speaking after Joseph has entered

thank you for participating :9:

Here are Capulet and Petrarch:
and thanks again for those two excellent readings ! I see your Capulet is first still a bit restrained but then in the next sentence he can't contain his anger anymore. :lol: Nice touch.

in both sections I have a small PL note though, this time, sorry (quickly corrected though ;) )

for Capulet:

> at 0:01: for the voice credit, I wanted to assemble a coherent sentence, so you would have to read it like this: Jim Locke as Capulet (see note here: viewtopic.php?p=1521638#p1521638 )

> since you have to reupload anyway, could you please write “jim” or “capulet” in your file-name ? In drama sections we need to differentiate the files that come in, otherwise each file would get overwritten by the next ;) only the final assembled file will have the standard file-name. Thank you

for Petrach:

> at 0:25: repeat of “Francesco Petrarch” in the title, can be cut out once

the rest was perfectly fine. :)

Here are a few more of my sections. Sorry to put more on your PL list--no worries if it takes a bit longer, I know you're really busy!
thank you, Foon, you are so fast. 8-)

Yes I probably won't be able to PL today, but will do so tomorrow at the latest.

well listening to your sections is always a pleasure :) and these are beautifully read again, and no textual errors at all.

Only one thing, in 4 of the sections, you forgot to say “This recording is in the public domain” at the end :?

Section 16, at 2:27 / Section 58, at 2:09 / Section 65, at 2:00 / Section 98, at 3:14

Section 43 is already PL ok, there for some reason you remembered to insert this line ;)

Thanks

PS did you also think that the hierarchy system to serve the Queen is terribly confusing ? :lol:
