As I’m sure you’re all aware, I’ve fallen behind with the PLing for this project. However, good news ahead! The fabulous Mark Nelson has come on board as editor and to help us all out with his amazing LV skills! He will post in a bit, and Anne, can we get sjmarky MW access please?

If you’re anything like me, you probably had some problems with the Gutenberg text we are using as our source material. The first is the habit of Mr. Gilbert to use “etc.” without any reference as too what the etc. refers to. The second is some passages were apparently originally printed in two columns, which got scrambled together and escaped PG’s proofers. Worse, the problematic passages are mostly choruses in which all the speakers need to be saying the same thing so they can be edited together.
As a (regrettably tardy) workaround, we’ve created a new text in which the etcetera text is spelled out and in bold type. You can get the pdf here:

http://markdouglasnelson.com/the-gondoliers.pdf

These are located on pages 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 15, 17, 19, 27, 29, 35, 36, 39, 45, 46, and 57. It really isn’t much.
So, if your recordings have not already cleared PL, we’re asking you to review the new text and make an addition recording just of the new text. Name your file: “gondoliers_charactername_actnumber_new” so you don’t overwrite your previous file. That way I can simply edit-in the additional material. Don’t go back and edit it into your previous submission; there’s really no need.
Thanks for your understanding. This will speed up the PL and editing so we can get this masterpiece out for our adoring public.

I have looked over your script - and except for the notes that I made below - my reading is good. I made one change and it was way easier to just fix the file I had already uploaded, so I just did that and uploaded the correct one over top -

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/gondoliers_annibalechorus_2.mp3

There were some issues with the script -

On page 33, there is still an Etc after Chorus. If you were planning on just copying what the chorus had just said above, then my files are correct.

page 47 There is still another etc. If you were planning on just copying what the chorus had just said above, then my files are correct.

page 31 another etc. If the etc is to be filled in with - "to silver clarion's sound, The rightful King—let him forthwith be crowned!" - then my file is good.

Yeah, I just missed those.

Here's Tessa, Act 2:

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/gondoliers_tessa_2.mp3

As requested, I read the two "chorus" sections that come right before Tessa enters:

"Here we are, at the risk of our lives,
From ever so far, and we’ve brought your wives –
And to that end we’ve crossed the main,
And don’t intend to return again!"

and

"So here we are, at the risk of our lives,
And we’ve brought your wives –
And to that end we’ve crossed the main,
And we don’t intend to return again!"


Also when the chorus repeats Tessa's line:

"We shall both go on requesting
Till you tell us, never doubt it;
Everything is interesting,
Tell us, tell us all about it!"

I repeated it, but I kept "We shall both go on requesting" instead of "They will both go on requesting..." (Let me know if you'd like me to do that differently).

Thanks!
TJ

Could someone please link Tessa, Act 2 to the magic window and mark it as "ready to PL"? I'd hate for the file to get lost in the crowd -- and also I'm trying to keep my "Reader Page" up to date. Thanks!
