P.S. My sister's bookbinding website is here at Some Odd Pages, if you'd like to take a peek at what sort of things a bookbinder might do nowadays.

Re: [GROUP MUSIC] Multilingual Christmas Carol Collection 2018 - tg

Susan, this was ethereally gorgeous, thank you! Just one thing, the volume is 94.5 db, and it needs to be between 86-92 db. If you would just reduce the volume by a few db, it'll be perfect. And as long as you will be uploading the file again, you might as well fix the file name while you're at it. ...

Looks like it's in the uploader as https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/ccc18_theresasongintheair_SH_128kb.mp3.mp3

If you can download this, then the file name can be fixed at cataloging time. :)
Aha! Yes! Once that final "7" is removed, it downloads just fine! Thank you, Tricia!

Re: Needed: MP3 music of 2 songs

I could make an mp3 for you, Tricia. Is it just a basic piano playing the melody that you need, just so you know how it goes to sing it? Or do you need a regular accompaniment? And how high would be too high -- and potentially screechy? :?

Re: Will there be a Christmas Short Works Collection 2018 ?

Yes, I'm also eager to see this collection launched, as I've had a story bookmarked to read for it! Are you thinking of taking it on, Devorah? Please do! The difference from a regular book project would be that since each reader chooses their own material, the BC would have to check that whatever th...

I've added it as a new language! It should be in the dropdown box now as "Scottish Gaelic".
And there it is! Yay! Thank you, Tricia! I've added it to the meta info for this section.
