The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1343 - 1400).


To be completed. ( Tony Addison)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/22120
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "The Canterbury Tales, by Geoffrey Chaucer. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of The Canterbury Tales, by Geoffrey Chaucer. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.
  • Example filename canterburytales_##_Chaucer_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. canterburytales_01_chaucer_128kb.mp3)

Was just planning to retire, recuperating from flu, listening to old sf stories, Kate Wilhelm, Avram Davidson, when I suddenly perked up and recorded this, which was enormous fun. So here is -

THE PROLOGUE.

Thank you for your time and patience. Will continue as inclination and anemia permit,

Sincerely,
Tony A.

The Knightes Tale done. (I'm thinking this may take the full ten months.) Now gearing up to be a brute male Miller-type person. (Not Arthur. More Henry.) (Good luck with that.)
