Thank you, Reny! And welcome to the Poetry Collection! :clap: All good with your recording!
Just as a suggestion for future recordings, to make your recording environment as quiet as possible for sounds that can't be cleaned by the Noise Reduction, like voices or chimes (for example, with closed doors/windows, ect). If not possible, it's still very much OK, since those sounds don't cover your voice :D :thumbs:

Hello Rapunzelina,

:lol:

Thank you, Colleen! Marked PL OK!

I noticed the title is "D'Avalos' Prayer" in the book, in case you feel it's important to change it. I also couldn't find "Cargoes" in the book, maybe you used another source for that one?

Oops I’m sorry! I got “Prayer” and “Cargoes” from “Selected Poems”

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/61286

“prayer” was the title in the latter work.

Welcome to the Poetry Collection, Justin!

I've entered your name as your catalogue name, did I spell it correctly on your Reader Page? Here it is https://librivox.org/reader/14937
and you can also access it from your name link in the magic window. We can link to a personal URL if you'd like, too. Your Reader Page, lists all projects you read for, and can also help you keep track of your sections in ongoing projects, under the "Reader section details" link.

Thank you for your two contributions to this collections! They are both PL OK, and beautifully read! :9:
I will have to keep The Raven for next month's collection, because we already have a version of it in this one (current section #5). I hope that is OK with you.

I would like to mention an impression I got, that the volume fluctuates (rises and falls at times). Would you check if your microphone has an auto-level feature, that you could deactivate to keep the volume stable? If that's not the case, maybe my impression is wrong :D For example, to show what I mean, listen to The Raven from 0:55 to 1:05

Thank you, Sonia! You sound different! Did you change microphone, or location, or mood? :D

location and microphone is still the same...so it must have been mood. I wasn't aware of any difference though. Hopefully not for the worst :?

You sounded sweeter than usual. Maybe it was the nature of the poem :9:
