Thank you Esther :)

@ Olga

I have had a listen and its great reading Olga.
However you forgot to say "This recording is in the public domain" at the end.
Please also add 5 sec silence.
The ID3 tags where also missing.

If you could add the correct ending and upload again then that would be great.
If you have any problems or are unsure about the ID3 tags then have a read here first:

And do feel free to ask me or in the forums.

Olga, you need to increase your input volume so that we can hear your lovely voice better. :)

If you are using Windows, go into the Control Panel and find something like Sounds and Audio Devices. On the Audio tab, there should be a slider for the microphone volume. Slide it up to the top. Also, make sure that the volume control in your recording program is high. The wave form that you see when recording should be nice and big - about halfway between 0 and 1.

Thanks again Regio90 :D

Your recording was still a little too quite and it was in stereo.
All files should be in mono.
Don`t worry ..I have done a little work and everything is fine now.

You have a great sounding voice it is a great pleasure to listen to you.
And it's just fantastic to hear Ukrainian - I believe you are the first one to have recorded here in Ukrainian...excellent.
I look forward to hearing more

thanks :)

ok, I'll record more louder and in mono.
When I find some time, I'll record another poem by Shevchenko, entitled "Kateryna" (which is slightly longer), but is great too.

I've uploaded a poem from Yunus Emre, but it hasn't been checked or added to the list yet. Any news on that?

Hi - here's a short poem attributed to Vergil, the Copa Syrisca or 'Syrian dancing-girl'
it's 00:03:45, & 3.44MB
The text, which varies a bit from edition to edition, can be found on the internet archive [including an English translation]
For those who want to read the Latin, this is helpful :
It's basically about a riverside pub in sunny Italy, complete with dancing barmaid. It's nice to think that this is how Vergil spent his spare time. We are going through a 'orrible cold snap in the UK at the moment, and I greatly envy him. hefyd
