THE GREAT INTENDANT A Chronicle of Jean Talon in Canada 1665-1672 by THOMAS CHAPAIS.

This is volume 6 in the Chronicles of Canada Series which were designed to cover Canadian history in a scholarly and readable fashion..
  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’d 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?
    Target completion date of this project: August 31, 2007 – but try to send your recordings as soon as you can. 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.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/4971
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!

    NOTE: Author died in 1946. This makes it OK for Canada, US and Australia.

    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps

  7. DURING recording:
    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "[Chapter number] of A chronicle of Jean Talon in Canada. 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]"
    • Say:
      " A chronicle of Jean Talon in Canada, by Thomas Chapais. Chapter X"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      End of [Chapter]"
      If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of A chronicle of Jean Talon in Canada, by Thomas Chapais"

    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!
    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  8. AFTER recording:
    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    chronicle_jean-talon_#_ chapais.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. chronicle_jean-talon_1_ chapais.mp3)
    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/WhatIsID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!
    Title: 1 – Chapter title
    Artist: Thomas Chapais
    Album: THE GREAT INTENDANT. A Chronicle of Jean Talon in Canada 1665-1672

    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
    Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    • If you have your own server space, post the link here. Please leave the file in this location until the project is catalogued.
    • If you don't have your own server space, you'll need to transfer the file to one of the free servers available. For a list of options, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

    I prefer the files uploaded directly to this folder:
    ftp.studioae.com = ftp address
    LibriVox =ftp user name
    L1br1V0x = ftp password (no vowels - they are all numbers)
    Folder name = jean_talon (within the “star” folder)
    I'll need the following information from you when you submit a recording:
    • your name/pseudonym as you want to appear in the LibriVox catalog, and your website URL if you like. These are only necessary if this is your first LibriVox recording.
    • the file size of your .mp3 file/duration of the recording.

Any questions?
Please post below or PM me.

What's this? You snuck in a project? And have we done the previous 5 vols as well, or is this just your favourite bit?

I suppose this is the point where I swiftly retract and make it all out to be a joke... thing is, I'd seen the Chronicle of Canada around, but this sounded different, so I wasn't sure. In any case, of course I could have looked... it was just an attempt to breathe some life into the thread, because you had 0 replies, and that's just not nice, is it?

Now I suppose I should offer my reading voice but... I won't. Have to finish some other things first... but might be back! :)

Good luck with this.

Oh I don't mind no responses. I'm used to that. There are just too many history projects now. I think all the history enthusiasts are just overwhelmed by the choice. :wink:
Now I suppose I should offer my reading voice but... I won't
Not even if I bribed you by telling you I would edit for you? :wink: :lol:

Esther,

I'll take a chapter to get this off the ground. Doesn't matter to me which one... :)

Sign me up for chapter 2. I should be able to handle 2839 words before the deadline.

A lot of the names sound like street names from where I used to live in Montreal when I was 5-8 years old - the St. Bernard, Esplanade, St. Viateur area, so I should be able at least to fake the pronunciation of most of them. (If I can forget the Anglicised versions I'd have been hearing. Heh.)

A few give me problems though:

Jean Le Mire - like "Meer"? or the English "mire"? or (seeing that there are no accents at all in the whole document) as "Miré"?

Madame d'Ailleboust - "DYaBOOST"?

Charles Aubert de la Chesnaye (also Bertrand Chesnay in Ch. 1) - Is the "s" silent? hard "ch" or soft "ch"? - "shenNAY", "shesNAY", "chenNAY", "CHENnay", "CHESSnay" or "chessNAY"?

Michel Le Neuf du Herisson was juge royal - soft "j" and soft "g"? Or as in "jhoojh"?

Sister Marguerite Bourgeoys - looks like a variant of "bourgois". Is the "s" silent? How does the "...eoy..." go? Two syllables or three? "BOR-jhee-Oy"? "BOR-jhoy"? "bor-JHOY"? Or just the same as the word "bourgois"? How does the "...eoy..." go?

J. B. Migeon de Bransac - soft "g" or hard "g", or is it like a soft "j"? Does "Bransac" rhyme with "ransack"?

Louis Artus Sailly - "Are-TWO", "Are-TOOSE", or "AREtuss"? "sy-YEE"?

Le Gardeur de Tilly - "tilly" (rhyming with "Billy"), or "teeyee"?

[Governor] Mezy - "MEZZee" or "MAYzee"?

Mere de la Nativite - Should that have been "Mère de la Nativité", as in "nah-TI-vi-TAY? If no accented final "e", then I'd guess "NAH-ti-VEET".

Marquis de Tracy - "TRAYsee", "traySEE", "TRAHsee" or "trahSEE"?

[Governor] Argenson - soft "g" or hard "g", or "jh"?

Madame de Repentigny - "REHpenTINyee", "REPPENtinyee", or "rehPENtinyee"?

Thanks.

Good idea. Probably more people likely to see it.
