Would Horatius at the Bridge from the Lays of Ancient Rome be acceptable for this collection? It is by Thomas Babington Macaulay.
2 Timothy 1:7. Look it up.
Due to life, I am unable to do LV much. Please be patient with delayed projects.

Tricia posted a link to the book, THE GATE OF REMEMBRANCE: The Story of the Psychological Experiment Which Resulted in the Discovery of the Edgar Chapel at Glastonbury, by Frederick Bligh Bond. Bond was an archeologist hired by the Anglican Church to excavate the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, assisted by his friend John Alleyne (AKA Capt. John Allen Bartlett). They claimed that they used automatic writing and other spiritualism to locate the ruins they found. On the publication of those claims in Bond's book, he was sacked by the church.

The authors are new to the LV catalogue -

Buckton short bio - https://www.oxfordlieder.co.uk/poet/690 (very short bio :roll: )
Alleyne short bio - https://www.encyclopedia.com/science/encyclopedias-almanacs-transcripts-and-maps/bartlett-john-allen-1861-1933

I thought that in this trying time of Covid-19, it was worth digging up a good old plague poem from the 1500s to remember that humanity has made it through similar trying times before.
More strength to you all :)

Thank you, Ro! A moving reading! Marked PL OK in the Magic Window!
Your reminder made me wonder what kind of poetry is being/will be written about covid19!

I'm thinking that I'll record another Jupiter Hammon poem: https://poets.org/poem/address-miss-phillis-wheatley
For this, should I speak the Roman numeral headings as the Arabic numbers ("one, two, three") pronounce them as they're spelled (X = "ex") or just skip them and only speak the written text?
In Freedom,
Evan

You can choose to skip them or not, but if you do include them please say "one, two, etc". I would personally include them :D

Hello,
Here is my final contribution:
Author: Anonymous
Title: Jack and Jill and Old Dame Gill
URL to text: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc208_jackandjill_cjpg_128kb.mp3
http://www.gutenberg.org/files/45289/45289-h/45289-h.htm
Time: 03:25

Q. I tried to find out the date of this publication but struggled, would you be able to help, I'm recording from Liverpool so I don't want to break any copyright legislation? Your help would be very much appreciated.

Kind regards,
Chad
