The essays were far more difficult that I realised when I set up the project. Well done for getting through it at all :).

These were more difficult readings than usual, but I learned a lot that I didn't know about the Magna Carta and related law, so it was very well worth the effort to read. Thank you for setting us up for a bit of a challenge, and then seeing us through it!

"Bit of a challenge" is right, Maria! Image

It was great fun trying to make some kind of sense of the l--o--n--g sentences.

I'm glad you had fun while doing a great job too! Sec.2 is PL OK, except I think it could take 2 or 3 dB of amplification. I don't have the Checker handy at the moment, so it's all my humble opinion.
Thank you everyone, it was fun to listen (except where it was getting Latin :wink: )

Thank you Karl :)

I don't have checker on this laptop, due to on-going problems with Java.
However, MP3 Gain has measured the volume as 89 db.

It is a raw recording, but if it's necessary to compress & increase volume, please let me know.

Thank you, Karl! Yes, the volume looks fine to me - bang on 89 dB. So I'll be getting on with cataloguing. Bravo, everyone! :clap:

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/magna-carta-commemoration-essays/

Thank you all very much for tackling this extremely difficult book, and thank you Karl for your diligent proof-listening. Thank heavens we won't be around for the 900th anniversary!

Yeah! Glad to see this completed!
:clap: :clap: :clap:
It was a very . . . ahem . . . scholarly work. I'll admit, I didn't understand some of the English bits that I read, let alone the Latin, so I'm glad that you gave the disclaimer.

Yes, it's a pity nothing was written at the time of the 700th anniversary which explained it to the lesser mortals. This time there is much more education about it for ordinary people. I intend to visit the Magna Carta Rediscovered exhibition, where the 1300 Faversham Magna Carta will be displayed.
