Hi Foon,

I see these are not assigned yet. Are you planning on assigning roles so they show up in our project list in our readers page so we can keep track of them, or are you keeping this much looser and will send us reminders if they slip through the cracks?

I've found that for the solos that I do, where I've invited some guest readers, that it was easier to assign them in the MW so they had views to what they were doing, but your call!

definitely, Nemo, if you are reading for the part, then you also get your reader's credit in the MW.

Foon, do you know how to assign parts ?

Hi,
I've PL'ed some more poems and
Sections 11, 13 and 18, 19 and 20 are all PL OK! :)


Section 12 has a little difference you might want to check:

At 2:38 heard “there” in “My spirit children who will claim me here.. .."

A small difference so your call whether you want to redo it. I'll PL the other files on Tuesday.

Wonderful, thanks Nemo! I'll PL the part tomorrow. :) And yesss I'm really excited to have you guys join me! :D

Thanks Betty for the PL note! I'll have a listen, but I think I'll change it; after all, in poetry every word is chosen carefully, so I'd like to stick to it as much as possible!

Hey Foon!

Since I was on a roll, I kept going :D

Here are the three roles of Ahasuerus .... there were several recognized ways to pronounce this biblical kings name, but the one I chose seems to be the most favored .... I did not even try to read it in Hebrew!

I made him a bit more stern in the first when he is talking with Vashti and then softened him just a bit when he meets the love of his life Esther in the next two. :)
