Up eight flights of stairs to a basement flat
Sing with the choirs that surround you

Yeah, a little less posh than the first, with some of the vowel sounds of the second creeping in from time to time depending on how tired/drunk I am. ;-) The words to keep an ear out for include 'mum', 'my', and 'about', which give away the Oxfordshire 'er', 'oi', and 'i' (that last features in the Oxford voice too, which is why people like Prince Charles say 'hice' instead of 'house'). I'm gently trying to persuade
to record a (southernized) Bolton version now. :)
Yes, marry/merry/Mary is splitting the recordings nicely, as well as some 'father/bother' stuff in the American voices. (I didn't pull 'faaaartherrrr' out in this one, although there's a hint of it the second time I say it in the Oxfordshire one.)
