Poems by Alice Meynell (1847 - 1922).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/poems-by-alice-meynell/
This is a volume of poems by Alice Meynell. ( Carolin)
    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.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1186
    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!

    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

      Set your recording software to:
      Channels: 1 (Mono)
      Bit Rate: 128 kbps
      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    7. DURING recording:
      • At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
      "[Poem title], by Alice Meynell, read for LibriVox.org" by [your name] or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.
      • Then read the poem.
      • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    8. At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Poems by Alice Meynell.
      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    9. 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.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      poems_##_meynell.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. poems_01_meynell.mp3)
    10. Example ID3 V2 tags
      (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
      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: Alice Meynell
      Title: ## - [Section title]
      Album: Poems

      Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

I'm so glad that you've launched Meynell! She was on my ever-growing list of works to read, and you've certainly got to her before I would have managed. I'll think about claiming at a better time, but until then, would you be interested in any other names for group poetry projects? :wink:

i have a list of over 100 e-texts of poetry, and im more or less randomly picking out new texts to bc whenever existing projects are close to completion/completed. i wish i could get around to recording and editing more myself, so that i could help recording the books i bc and move that list along a bit :roll:

but as i said, i pick and choose kind of randomly. if you have a wishlist of books you'd like to see opened as group projects, id be happy to hear it - chances are at least some of the titles would already be on my list, and ill make sure to bump them to the top :D

Your queue is worse than mine!

Well, if you push something to the front, then something else gets pushed back - so if you don't rush on these, I will understand! I will get to them, but not in the immediate future.

I'll mention two, both of whom reflect my preference for underrepresented authors (again, I will understand if you prioritise other things):

L.E.L. (Letitia Elizabeth Landon, 1802-1838).
One volume of her poems is available here:
https://archive.org/details/poeticalworksofl00lell

Speranza (Jane Wilde [Oscar Wilde's mum], 1826-1896):
https://archive.org/details/poems00wild_0

A quick disclaimer: I've not gone through the full pdf for either poet, so I make no claims about the quality of the scans.

That's funny! It doesn't really matter which volume. If only there were more time, right?

I'm going to give in and claim two teeny ones - may I please have 35, 'A Poet's Sonnet', and 37 'After a Parting'?
