Corrected version of section 43:
https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume10_043_tappan_128kb.mp3
thank you, Ruth, the disclaimer is correct now. However for some reason the volume is much louder now, it exceeds our accepted limit of 92 dB. I can't imagine this one added word would change the volume so much. You did not re-record it all again, did you ? :?

Could you please decrease the overall volume by -2 dB and reupload one final time ? Thanks

Sonia

Sorry about this, not sure what’s happened here, I didn’t record it all again, just did the corrections.
Will get it sorted when I can.

Section 95 - The wearing o'the green (time 3:05) :mrgreen:

https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume10_095_tappan_128kb.mp3

The tune used here is my own improvised variation on the traditional Irish tune "Londonderry Air" first published in 1855 in a collection of Ancient Irish Music (Wiki). That ought to make it old enough to be PD. It is best known for its use in the popular song Danny Boy. :mrgreen:

Ross, 74,12 & 6 for PL:
excellent narrations, all of them. Thank you so much Nemo. I was hoping Ross had a bigger role, but the short passage was also wonderfully characterized. :thumbs:

All sections PL ok apart from 74, there is a small note for the end disclaimer:

> at 2:34: "end of Section 74" – you say "end of poem"

thanks

ok yes this tune should be PD, no problem. Anyway, you made your own interpretation of it so this is definitely PD then. I can still hear the original tune out of it, but it is not exactly the same. It's a nice variation and very original. I also think the lines are too long to really fit the original tune as I know it.

A wonderful performance, thank you so much, Alan ! And PL ok of course.

Section 1 is perfectly PL OK. Not an easy decision, murdering a monarch--Hamlet's dilemma too! Jim :shock:

thank you, Jim :) yes I thought the trick they implied she tried to pull with signing the papers unawares was a bit low. But we don't know whether that really was her intention.

Oops! ... sorry about that. I am so used to reading the poetry disclaimer at the end of a poem, I forgot about the "section #"!

Here is revised file for spot pl ..... https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume10_074_tappan_128kb.mp3
