Hi,

First I must apologise - I uploaded these files for dii at first - somehow get confused, so uploaded again for lz. Is there a way to quickly delete them from the wrong spot? I'd hate to clutter your server.

Below are two poems in Polish language, both by Juliusz Słowacki (1809-1849) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juliusz_Slowacki

This is my first contribution to LibriVox. Please use name Nina Brown on the catalogue page.

URL for the recorded file on the Uploader - http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/lz/polish_na_sprowadzenie_prochow_napoleona_slowacki_nib.mp3
Duration of recording (mm:ss) - 2:51
Link to online text - http://www.wolnelektury.pl/katalog/lektura/na-sprowadzenie-prochow-napoleona.html
Title of poem - Na sprowadzenie prochów Napoleona
Name of author - Juliusz Słowacki


URL for the recorded file on the Uploader - http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/lz/polish_rozlaczenie_slowacki_nib.mp3
Duration of recording (mm:ss) - 2:21
Link to online text - http://www.wolnelektury.pl/katalog/lektura/rozlaczenie.html
Title of poem - Rozłączenie
Name of author - Juliusz Słowacki

I hope I remembered all the steps...

warm regards
Nina

PS Just in case someone was curious as I am curious about the other poems posted here - the first title translates "On the return of Napoleon's ashes" and the second, a love poem in a form of a letter, is titled "Separation".

Delay? What delay? I am constantly amazed how quickly the MCs respond and how smoothly everything happens! Thank you!

Thanks again, hoping to hear you in the next collection or elsewhere :D

Hi

Let there be Latin!

I've been plodding through my old textbook on vowel quantities, to try to sound more convincing:

Language – Latin (Classical)
Author – Gaius Valerius Catullus (c. 84 – c. 54 BC)
Text URL - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catullus_51

MP3 URL - http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/lz/latin_ode51_catullus_mg.mp3
Duration – 01:28

Hi

And how about another Polish poem to fill up the Magic Window:

Author: Adam Asnyk (1838-1897)
Title: Daremne żale

Text URL: http://www.wolnelektury.pl/katalog/lektura/daremne-zale.html
MP3 URL: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/lz/polish_daremnezale_asnyk_mg.mp3

Duration: 01:11

Hope this doesn't sound too laboured - I was determined not to leave out any of those consonants. :)

Best
Martin

Polish totally hijacked this part of the collection :twisted:

Very good reading, Martin. NO mispronounciations found :thumbs: Did you have any problems understanding the text? It's not exactly the kind of Polish you can find in modern learning materials :)

Thanks Piotr. :) Not colloquial, but a nice short poem with a clear moral message. I found it easier to follow than newspapers in Polish, I must say.

Martin
