Absolutely! The first ecloga is divided into two parts: Tityrus and Meliboeus. Which would you prefer to read? (I believe Tityrus is the longer part of the two.)

I'll take Mopsus, if you like.

Sure. :D People who speak Latin are my favorites.

I think I can record both, they aren't longer than three pages.

I've finished the Mopsus (5b) section and I'm currently uploading to MediaMax (I've never used it before but I was following the dialogue about it on the Paradise Lost thread, so I'll let you know how it goes). I exported it as a .wav file per your request. Sorry if the reading's a little over-the-top; I was feeling...um...expressive. Anyway, I should have a link posted in just a few minutes.

I changed my mind, here's the yousendit link:

Due to the seeming lack of interest, if you get desperate and need me to pick up more sections of this, let me know.

Caeristhiona is having a little bit of computer trouble at the moment. I've downloaded your file and will hold on to it in case she doesn't get back before the link expires.

By the way, I don't understand a word, but it sounds really cool. :D

I have returned. :) I did receive it, and it sounds lovely. Thanks so much, y'all!

I love Librivox. Every time I wander in someone is reading one of my favorite things.

Please sign me up for 8b; Damon's piece is one of my favorite bits of poetry in any language. Once I've done that I will happily split the rest with whoever is interested!

Thanks so much for setting this up.

Oh, hooray! :) If you like we're also doing this in English...and it's equally had to find readers. :D

I'm willing to give Eclogue 4 a go. (After all, I am supposed to teach the stuff...)

Funny. I don't feel like too much of an idiot talking to my computer in English, but talking to it in Latin is odd.

Here are the first ten lines of Eclogue 4 as a sort of voice test - is this the sort of thing you had in mind? (My pronunciation is idiosyncratic, I know...)

If it's OK, great, I'll get on with the whole thing. If not, let me know what needs to change and I'll see what I can do. Some things might be hard to unlearn, though.
