Still here. Now I'm stuck at at home I may be able to speed up a bit. Have recorded several more yesterday which I'll edit and upload this week.

Hello Kevin, I have some more for you to PL, please: 9, 15, 17-18, 22 and 24-34.

A few notes:

9 (Spring) I've re-recorded entirely, as I wasn't able to make a reasonable-sounding correction to the previous recording.

17 (The Loss of the Eurydice) has a Bartleby error in verse 7: "stores" should read "storms"

32 (Spelt from Sibyl's Leaves) has a Bartleby error in line 6: "steed-ed" should read "steep-ed"

Many thanks. No hurry!

Hope you're well! I'll get to these soon, I think.

24-28 PL OK!

29 In the first line you've transposed 'he' and 'is.'

Many thanks!

I've fixed the first line of 29 and have re-upoaded for spot PL.

There's not much to read for 67, On a Piece of Music, as the text just refers to a facsimile in the appendix (https://archive.org/details/poemsofgerardman030114mbp/page/n110/mode/1up). Unfortunately, the facsimile isn't readable, and later-published versions have been edited and are not in the public domain. I don't want to skip the section as that will mess up the poem numbers, so I think the best thing to do is simply read what's there.

Just finishing off the final recordings now. With luck I should be able to edit and upload all of the remaining tracks within the next week or so.

I've discovered that the Bartleby text gets worse and worse as it goes on. It's supposed to be a transcription of the 1918 first edition (facsimile at the Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/poemsofgerardman030114mbp/page/n20/mode/1up), but there are an increasing number of errors including made-up titles that aren't quite the same as the original, a line missing from the heading of No 49, and two and a half entire lines of text missing part way through No 36.

I don't think it would be ideal to send readers to a corrupt copy, and if it's OK I'd like to change the text link over to the Internet Archive facsimile. I've been closely comparing the two in order to catch Bartleby errors, and I'm confident that my reading is a word-perfect version of the original. Having said that, IA isn't perfect either: they've forgotten to scan the pages containing poems 73 and 74. Those should be there (they are mentioned in the notes on page 214), so I'll have to use Bartleby for those anyway.
