Ten Homilies on the First Epistle of John. by Saint Augustine of Hippo (354 - 430). Translated by Philip Schaff (1819 - 1893)

This project is in our catalog at https://librivox.org/ten-homilies-on-the-first-epistle-of-john-by-saint-augustine-of-hippo/

As regards the plan of the Epistle, it has been often asserted till lately that it was supposed to be but fragmentary, a series of aphorisms. Augustine, however, without formally announcing a plan as discovered by him in the Epistle, not only frequently affirms in his exposition that charity or love is the Apostle’s main theme, but so conducts the discussion, gathering his arguments and illustrations around this central thought, as to render it evident that in his view the purpose and plan of the Apostle is to set forth love in its essence and its scope, and that he intends to make this thought dominant in every part. (Philip Schaff)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://ccel.org/ccel/schaff/npnf107/npnf107.iv.i.html
  • 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!

You are a great reader - you sound like a professional!

Section 1 PL notes:
09:11 Long pause/hesitation and clearing of throat ("and would needs handle, and so believe, and said, 'I will not believe except I thrust my fingers'")
11:30 Stumble ("and how Christ suf . . . suffered")
11:35 Misreading that changes meaning of text ("what great thing hearest thou?" read as "what a great thing hearest thou")
20:08 Misreading that changes meaning of text ("pride extinguisheth charity" read as "pride exalteth charity")
24:34 Stumble ("in the number of s . . . sinners")
30:32 Stumble ("What commandment calls [unintelligible word] he old?")

Section 2 PL notes:
03:33 Misreading that changes meaning of text ("if those believed afterwards who had killed" read as "If those believed afterwards who had been killed")
12:38 Long pause ("the Latin and the Punic . . . i.e. African")
13:35 Stumble ("it is s . . . set")
14:07 Background noise/blowing on mic
19:20 Stumble ("he enforceth this")
22:36 Stumble ("we a . . . also some years ago")
25:05 Long pause ("not anything went . . . from His eternity")
29:39-29:35 Background noises

In the second half of this section, I noticed that your breath tends to hit your microphone rather hard on the letter "p." This popping noise is called a "plosive," and is caused by the positioning of your microphone. Try moving your microphone to the side of your mouth, rather than right in front of it, and back up ever so slightly. To ensure that repositioning doesn't make your recording too quiet, monitor the volume using Checker. The plosives are not significant enough to require recording over again; I just wanted you to be aware for next time. I did not notice any plosives in Section 1, so perhaps your mic position was off in this section.

OK I'll try to make sure I'm not speaking too directly into the microphone. I do have a pop filter, but clearly I need to be a little more careful.

Thank up for the comments. It's a good thing you are catching these mistakes. I'm rather obvious when I read.

Changes made. I can't for the life of me figure out what causes those odd drum-like sounds which you have labeled as background noise. It might be a problem with my hardware.

That would be fantastic if you can figure out it... but of course I've corrected the mistake in the audio file. You'd have to check an older version of the file... if it exists.
