Hello respected teachers,

There was a thin quality about his voice that she had heard only rarely, each occasion so long ago it was astonishing she remembered it.

What does each occasion mean in the above please?

The custom of speaking is the original and only just standard of any language. Joseph Priestly- Rudiments of EG, 1761.

It means "each time".

She had heard that same quality rarely (a few times only).

All the times she had heard it were a very long time ago.
