Rose Leaf and Apple Leaf by Rennell Rodd (1858 - 1941).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: http://librivox.org/rose-leaf-and-apple-leaf-by-rennell-rodd/
This is the first volume of poetry published by Rennell Rodd, British diplomat, poet and politician. Rodd received help publishing this volume from his friend Oscar Wilde, who also wrote the introduction for this volume. ( 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/35903
    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!

      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      • At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":

      • Then read the poem.

    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

    10. Example ID3 V2 tags (leave those 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: Rennell Rodd
      Title: ## - [Section title]
      Album: Rose Leaf and Apple Leaf

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

Oh, brilliant! I've considered posting this one myself, but always had something else that I should be getting along with, so I'm very glad to see it. Can I snap up the envoi?

I was starting to skim through these poems and they all sound good, so I just start right at the beginning and claim Sections 2, 3 and 4 for the moment, please. Surely more to come...

Here is already my first contribution. Before I continue, I have to ask if you really want the long disclaimer with "chapter" each time in this project, as pointed out in your first post. It just strikes me as odd, as usually with poetry we only use the short one and they are not really "chapters" but poems. :hmm:
I wait for confirmation, so that I don't have to re-do the intro each time again. For this one I have done the long one as per instruction, but I can easily switch it with the short one, if that's what you prefer after all...

how can i continually mess this up, after 200+ projects :evil:

thanks for pointing this out, of course this should have been the poetry disclaimer. only for section one there should be the long disclaimer
