Hello Rapunzelina,

Here you go:

Rebecca, Who Slammed Doors for Fun and Perished Miserably, by Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953)
Text URL: https://www.theotherpages.org/poems/belloc01.html#22
Duration: 0:25
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc204_rebecca_s_128kb.mp3

This is my first recording. I'm doing my best to follow directions precisely, but if there are any issues with my recording, I'll be happy to address them!

I've signed up for something else but haven't recorded it yet, so I think I might already be in the catalog, but if not, I'd like to appear as Scarbo.

Thank you!

a bit late to the party, but I plan on not breaking my streak since 2016 :shock: and will finish three poems for this month as well...here is the first, quite a sad poem, even though the friendship is endearing. The author should have released both birds at the end. :(

"The faithful bird" by William Cowper (1731-1800)

Hi there,
my revised contributions.
Great selections for the collection! A few notes on the technical side of things. Your recordings are in stereo, while they need to be in mono for Librivox. You can set this up in Audacity, menu Edit -> Preferences: "Devices" tab: Recording Channels, choose "1 (Mono)" from the drop-down menu. Then click OK and the setting should be saved for all future recordings.
To change these existing recordings into mono, go from menu Tracks -> Mix -> Mix Stereo down to mono. You'll see the double track turn into a single one. Then export to mp3 again. When naming the file at exporting, you don't have to include the suffix .mp3 because Audacity adds that automatically, otherwise you end up with a double .mp3. Also, please avoid any punctuation marks in the filenames, like the exclamation mark in O Captain! My captain! I think they would mess up the cataloguing process. I'm not sure, but I don't want to risk it :mrgreen:
I think, while listening to the poems, the longer one was recorded under different circumstances? the sound is a bit different, and a bit lower than the rest, so maybe add just a little amplification to match the rest.
That's it! To recap, turn these recordings into mono, check filenames when exporting, amplify "Tintern Abbey" just a bit, and set your Audacity to record in mono for future recording :thumbs: Let me know if something is unclear or if you need any help.
By the way, your Reader Page is here: https://librivox.org/reader/14311 :clap: and you can also access it from your name-link in any Magic Window. I've used your forum name as Catalogue name, is there another name you'd like to be credited by as a reader?
