Also, you left out the "end of sonnets 51-60" and silence at the end. If you could edit that, that would be great.

You have a great voice for Shakespeare! Your inflection is great, I can tell you really "get it" which isn't always easy with Shakespeare! So... want some more sonnets? :D
Thanks. I'll edit and produce a new mp3. Um, yes, my real name (Chris Goringe) and URL (tis.goringe.net) would be good.

Looks like I missed out on claiming any more...

Great, Hugh, thanks!

Chris - thanks for the info and the edit. If you're *dying* for another chunk you can have one of mine - I haven't recorded 71-80 or 101-110 yet.

I've put a new copy in the same place. I'm afraid the 'end of...' message has a rather different tone (I couldn't get set up in my normal location!).

I've probably got more recordings promised to people than I ought to right now, so I won't take another chunk. If I feel the need for some more Shakespeare maybe I'll read one of his great monologues for the short poetry collection.

I'm sure the edit will be fine, all of my early recordings of Pride and Prejudice sound that way, with the disclaimer tacked on at the beginning and the "end of" at the end. Thanks for diong that!

Yes, I think we all have many recordings promised to many people so I understand very completely. There certainly is no shortage of Shakespeare to quench your craving!

Hi Annie and all,

Just sent, via YouSendIt, my second chunk of sonnets (91 thru 100).

Please let me know, Annie, if further work is needed on the file.

Now, back to Woolf!

Cheers,

Hi Dave, file received. I'll give it a listen later on, I'm sure it'll be fine but I'll let you know if there are any major problems. Thanks!

Thank you for the lovely compliments, Annie. I'm working on more projects now. I really enjoyed reading the sonnets and am telling friends to stay tuned for the whole collection.

Best,
Nikolle

Just checking in here. I said I'd finish it this past weekend, and I didn't. But I WILL get it done before the 31st. I just have finals coming up and various other things, but I will find the time. I will!

Sounds good Matrix. :) I certainly understand that school has to come first. There's no huge rush, just so long as you plan on doing it sometime soon-ish.

Okay everyone it's crunch time! Four days till our deadline. I know everyone contacted me and said they still plan on doing their recordings but I haven't gotten anything yet. This weekend is your last chance or they will be put up for grabs for others to read. I look forward to listening!

All done recording, now it's just editing. I know some of these aren't great, but I think I did okay for my first try. (I hope!) My first recording was done in my room with other people in the house, and I didn't want to draw attention to myself, so it's kind of quiet. Others are a bit too loud. Anyway, it shouldn't be too big an issue. Is the intro (after "This is a LibriVox recording...") "Sonnets 11 through 20, by William Shakespeare" or "Shakespeare's Sonnets; numbers 11 through 20"?

Interestingly, a lot of the ones in my section have the same message, namely, immortality through art. That second part kind of reminds me of LibriVox in a way. We're keeping these poems "alive" by making them more accessible, just as Shakespeare talks about keeping his love's beauty alive "in his rhyme." So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, so long lives this, and this gives life to thee. :)

Sounds good, MatrixFrog! I also noticed in the three chunks I did that each one had a very similar theme.

Good luck with editing, if you need any help, you can try posting in the "listeners and editors wanted" forum. There are some folks who are great at evening out the volume and things like that.

For my introduction, I said, "Sonnets, by William Shakespeare, Sonnets 1 through 10," and then at the end, "end of Sonnets 1 through 10." It doesn't have to be exact, just some variation on that theme. I look forward to listening!
