Section 11 - Contralto

I think Gautier must have been a Rossini fan, there are references here to contralto roles in some little-known Rossini opera.

Still some work needed on these:
Section 10, at 0:53 seems the same The word is “stealth ily” I hear something like, “steth-ily (this jumped out at me)

Section 21 is still at the wrong bit rate, and now the volume is out of range at 93.7 dB. It needs to be brought down closer to 89 dB. Did you boost this somehow, or did I miss it the first time around?
I struggled with the word stealthily. If it isn't pronounced well this time, I will have to withdraw my submission for #10.

The higher dB you sensed on #21 may have been the result of running the compressor with a zero gain make-up. Audacity did not allow me to resample the recording as attempted. To solve these problems, I have re-recorded #21.

Hi,

I was looking at one section, but that one is already taken. I will look over the other ones that are available.

Thanks.
