Sonnets to a Lover by Myrtle Reed (1874 - 1911).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: http://librivox.org/sonnets-to-a-lover-by-myrtle-reed/
This is a book of poetry by Myrtle Reed. Ms. Reed is most famous for her love stories such as A Spinner in the Sun and Old Rose and Silver, and these sonnets are an exploration of the same theme through a different medium. ( 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 apply a one month deadline in poetry projects!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/sonnetstolover00reed
    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!

      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 Myrtle Reed, 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):

    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.

Hi Carolin

as sonnets are by default quite short, I think I can fit this project still on my DPL list :)

I'm not sure what a DPL list is but I'd be happy to read more poems as well - I was wanting to spread the love - but if needed I can definitely read more - I like sonnets.

Hi Liz !!!

to answer your question: DPL is short for Dedicated Proof Listener, so that would be the person who is listening to all the sections in one project to check for textual or technical errors. And that would be me for this project now, so I listened to your recording, and judging by this first one, please by all means, spread the love and read more :9:

so first of all: congrats to your very first contribution. I must say, I liked your reading very much. Your voice is easy to understand, quiet, not too fast (for me that’s a bonus, but that’s my personal opinion) and you read the sonnet word perfect, without any flaws. :thumbs:

Add to that that the technical details are also correct, well, I can only mark it PL ok.

As I already said: I’d be glad to hear more from you, and since you seem to have enjoyed the recording process as well, I'm sure we'll cross many paths in the near future :)

Thank you

Sonia

And 15 The Tide as well if I may...

So to recap I'd like to do 6 (An Old Love Song) and 15 (The Tide) if possible
