and thank you for those two excellent sections. I knew the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora Macdonald already, but the details are interesting. And your Scottish pronunciations of the names sound quite cool. 8-) Loved to listen to it.

I have a few notes to correct though:

for section 79:

> from 11:40-11:42: (p. 394) between "get some supper" and "Mrs Macdonald": the pause feels too long, I would cut down at least a second here

> at 11:50: (p. 394) repetition: "was striding up and down the hall in a manner terrifying to behold" – one version can be cut

> from 16:48-16:51: (p. 396) between "he sailed from Skye" and "Flora Macdonald was arrested": the long pause could be cropped significantly here as well. Also you can cut out "note from the editor", simply say "the editor" at the end (at 17:14), like it is written in the book. No need to change the text as such

> could you also change the filename to 3 digits please: 079 instead of 79, because we have over 100 sections this time

for section 80:

> for the intro, I wanted the short intro for all sections under 3 pages long (as noted in the MW), so here please only say "Section 80 of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, read for LibriVox.org by Jane Bennett. Ireland Part I: The golden age of Erin: Historical note"

> at 3:37: after "end of section 80", you have to say the rest of the disclaimer "this recording is in the public domain", especially because it hasn't been stated in the short intro at the beginning

> also here: please change the filename to 080 instead of 80

thank you

Sonia
Sorry, I missed a few things there! Corrected and re-uploaded. Now 17m 28 and 3m 24 in length.

Section 53 - The Thane

The speech beginning "Is this a dagger.." I had to memorise when I was at school. Doing it again after so long was wonderfully nostalgic.
ah yes, we had Macbeth in our final highschool exams as well. I don't think I understood as much there as I did now :lol:
A great perfomance again Alan. In some parts you sound positively evil :shock: but of course in the end he is more hesitant that his good dear lady. :mrgreen:

Hi Sonia

Thanks for giving me the chance to do this. I really enjoyed it. :D Always been my favourite Shakespeare play. Now I need to find an excuse to do the rest of the play :hmm:

and Duncan is PL ok, as long as he is alive :mrgreen: Kinda tragic how trusting he was in Macbeth all the time while he was plotting to kill him. Thank you Jim, you sound very regal :)

thank you, Jane. Section 80 is definitely PL ok now.

For 79 there was a bit of a misunderstanding I think, sorry about that:

> at 16:41: "note" can be cut, sorry if I wasn't too specific. This is not your regular footnote (which would have a number in the text), so it won't be specifcally introduced

> at 17:05: "end note" can also be cut, simply "the editor" is enough

> at the end you have now 10 seconds of silence, but 5 seconds are the standard required. I don't know why they were added because last time that was ok :hmm:

thanks

that's ok, since both are PL ok, I make a note and change it in my folder later on.

Loved the witch !!! I can imagine you being the "young, seducing" witch in the trio. Now we need some hags too to make up the amalgam. Preferably a tooth missing or two :mrgreen:

Excellent job :clap: Thanks

as it's such a popular play, we may launch it once again one day. Maybe a Shakespeare in a week contest again :lol:

No problem. Fixed - now 17.21s Apologies for the extra length. (When I add/change, I do it at the end, and then paste in. Forgot to remove the extra length. )

Here's hoping these go a little more smoothly!! :D
hey Erin, they do indeed. All sections straight out PL ok :thumbs: thank you so much for all these. Very interesting, all of them. Balaclava was quite a tragic incident :( I just read the details on wikipedia, what a disaster. Shows again that one shouldn't follow orders blindly.
