Hello, Andrew!

The recordings are great, very expressive! My only notes have to do with the length of the silence at the end, whcih should be 5 seconds, and is a bot longer in both sections. If you could just trim it and reupload the sections with the same name and everything, that would be perfect! Thanks!

Hello, Verity!

Thanks for the recording. I have only two little notes:
at 00:27 there seems to be some editing that happened and left a little snippet of sound behind, in "that I slide / O’er sixteen years"
at 01:45, the text reads "If never, yet that Time himself doth say / He wishes earnestly you never may. " . In your reading, you skipped the word himself, and changed earnestly to constantly.
