Hi! Great to see you in the Poetry Collection! Thank you for your lovely recording!
I have marked it PL OK in the Magic Window, but I will mention something I noticed, in case you are a perfectionist:
at around 0:33, the text is "nor ray of promise cheats the pensive gloom", and in the recording I hear "nor rays of promise..." which difference I noticed only because the verb is in the third person singular.
But it doesn't change the meaning or the rhythm/tempo of the poem, so we're fine with it, as long as you're fine with it :thumbs:

Hi Rapunzelina

Thanks for proof listening. Much appreciated.

The weird thing is that this link https://fromtroublesofthisworld.wordpress.com/2014/12/10/sonnet-vii-by-hartley-coleridge/ does indeed say "nor rays of promise cheats the pensive gloom". So, I should probably upload again and use this as my text link. I already had the script to this poem on paper, so didn't bother to check if the web link text matched. Still, very strange indeed.

Also - and I don't claim to be an engineer or VO person - I've just discovered that I can eliminate the background noise in Reaper using ReaFIR. So, when I upload the new text link, can I also re-upload the new mp3, without the sound of my kicking the mike stand?

Sorted

Probably a typo at transcribing. That's why scanned texts are preferred. :D

Yes, definitely, show me your new magic powers with ReaFIR!

Thank you, Olga!
Please check the recording of "Moonlight" because only a portion of it was uploaded. Check to make sure you have saved the full recording and re-upload.
The other two recordings are fine, and very lovely read :)
