The Kings and Queens of England with Other Poems by Mary Ann H. T. Bigelow (? - 1870).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: http://librivox.org/the-kings-and-queens-of-england-with-other-poems-by-mary-ann-bigelow/
This is a volume of poems by Mary Ann Bigelow, who turned her historical research into a poem in "the Kings and Queens of England". ( 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. Please note that we handle a one month deadline for poetry projects!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14955
    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 Mary Ann Bigelow, 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 The Kings and Queens of England with Other Poems by Mary Ann H. T. Bigelow.
      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
      kingsandqueens_##_bigelow_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. kingsandqueens_01_bigelow_128kb.mp3)
    10. Example ID3 V2 tags
      You may leave the tags blank!
      (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: Mary Ann H. T. Bigelow
      Title: ## - [Section title]
      Album: The Kings and Queens of England with Other Poems

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

Do you want the full disclaimer on the preface, or will the poetry one do?

Thank you :) I will read as Lewis-James Mordieu if that is acceptable? I don't have anything worth linking to.

It was nice to meet you :) I look forward to recording. I would be willing to PL everything that I don't record if you like.

Yours
