Chrysomela by Robert Herrick (1591 - 1674).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/chrysomela-by-robert-herrick/
This is a volume of poetry by Robert Herrick. The volume "Chrysomela" was arranged by Francis Turner Palgrave. The 17th century English poet is continuing to inspire readers of his poetry. ( 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/1211
    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.

the first section is not a poem and therefore needs the full intro:
DURING recording:
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
START of recording (Intro)
  • "Preface to Chrysomela. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
  • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
  • Say:
    "Chrysomela, by Robert Herrick. Preface by Francis Turner Palgrave "

END of recording
  • At the end of the section, say:
    "End of Preface"
  • If you wish, say:
    "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

Could Nemo and I claim the poems in this book? Alternating, I guess? :hmm: (just the poems, not the preface!) (What do you think, Nemo?)

Eva, that sounds great ..whatever way you want to split up the 15 poems is fine with me!

However, I think the best would be if you did the evens (2,4,6,8,10,12,14) and I do the odds (1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15)

Carolin, just a thought ... this is a huge book of Herrick's poems -something like 260 of them!. A 5,200 word Preface makes sense for the whole book, but it seems that for just these very short 15 poems of Chrysomela, that it is a bit out of place? The poems combined are only about 1,200 words.

Maybe leave out?

Thoughts?

Oh, I had bookmarked this to claim some sections, but since you're having private party . . . . :(
Just kidding. :mrgreen:

I recorded a couple of the loose poems from Maud this morning, and Captain Sword, so want to get our other poetry projedcts finished this month.

And, Carolin, bravo for long weekends with good weather :clap:

Sorry, Larry :(

FWIW, this project is so brief I already did all my sections in one reading!

(Then I threw them away because they were bad readings, but ... they were short.)
