Saints and Heroes to the End of the Middle Ages by George Hodges (1856 - 1919).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/saints-and-heroes-to-the-end-of-the-middle-ages-by-george-hodges/
Through these stories of the lives of twenty saints and heroes of the faith, we are introduced to the history of the church from 3rd century A.D. to the Reformation. These stories recount their lives and sacrifices for the faith. These saints and heroes include: Cyprian, Athanasius, Ambrose, Chrysostom, Jerome, Augustine, Benedict, Gregory the Great, Columba, Charlemagne, Hildebrand, Anselm, Bernard, Becket, Langton, Dominic, Francis, Wycliffe, Hus, and Savonarola. Appropriate and beneficial for children and adults! (Maggie Travers)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.mainlesson.com/display.php?author=hodges&book=saints&story=_contents
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Chapter [number] of Saints and Heroes to the End of the Middle Ages. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

      Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!
      Artist: George Hodges
      Title: ## - [Section title]
      Album: Saints and Heroes to the End of the Middle Ages

OK, your MW is ready for you and I have you in as DPL as well. I took the liberty of shortening your file name, just to make life easier for our readers. If you want to change it further, that's fine by me. I think we will stay here until sometime tomorrow, just for more visibility.

Excellent! I'll take Athanasius please! (My father-in-law's name and patron saint!)

EDIT: I guess you are all sleeping and I'm the only one on here. Ah well, here's the section anyway. It's a short one, so I thought I'd record it quickly before I leave for Greece tomorrow!

Great! Have you completed a test file and had it approved (to check technical specs and such?)

Also, I will need to know what section/chapter you would like to read specifically :)

Great to have you on this project!
