Quote:
LibriVox volunteers bring you a festive selection of Christmas carols for the 2017 holiday. This year's collection of carols includes traditional favorites and lesser-known selections. The singers wish all listeners around the world a happy and peaceful Christmas. (Maria Kasper)


  • How to claim a part: It is not necessary to pre-claim sections for this project. Simply follow the instructions listed below.

  1. Choose a Christmas carol, in any language, which is in the public domain.

  2. To avoid “Is it PD?” headaches, please choose your carol from a book with a publication date of 1922 or earlier plainly visible. The next post below contains links to a number of carol books. You may use any of these, or another carol book of your own choice, so long as it was clearly published no later than 1922.

  3. If you are not in the US, please make sure the death dates of the composer and lyricist fall within the required dates to be PD in your own country. If in doubt, please ask!

  4. If you choose, you may sing PD carol lyrics to an original tune made up by yourself. If you are using your own tune, please make sure to say so.

  5. If you want to check what has been included in previous Christmas carol collections, you can check them out here:
    https://librivox.org/search?q=christmas%20carol%20collection&search_form=advanced
    But remember, it doesn't matter if the carol has been recorded before. A choice of voice is always welcome at Librivox! :D

  6. Each singer may submit as many carols as they wish (well, within reason ;) ).

  7. Any accompaniment must be performed by yourself.

  8. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!

  9. Is there a deadline? Please upload your file by the DEADLINE of Monday December 18th 2017

  10. Where do I find the text? Check the next post below for some suggested PD carol books.

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

  12. 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)
    • "[Title] by [Author Name], sung in [language]. This is a Librivox recording. All Librivox Recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit Librivox.org"

      OR if you are singing in another language, please feel free to use the LibriVox disclaimer in that language. You can find these on this page in the Wiki.


    END of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Title], by [Author Name]"
    • If you wish, you may also say: "Sung by [your name]."

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

  13. AFTER recording
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    File name all in lowercase: ccc17_[carol's title]_[your initials]_128kb.mp3

    • When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

  15. Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file and include the following information:
      * Link to your recording, as shown on the Uploader
      * Link to the text (and music) source
      * Language in which the carol is written

Maria:

I hope you don't mind, but a added a link to the Collection on my signature line to help get singers on board.

Also, I'm going to take the plunge. I saw in one of the works posted on the board a version of Good King Wenceslaus. I'd like to attempt that. (I'm getting over an inflamed larynx and haven't sung anything in months....but I'd like to give it a shot.)

Many thanks,

Philip

Thank you, Rapunzelina! I'm hoping that this year most of the singers will stick to carols from books with a publication date right there in plain sight, which will be a lot simpler than figuring out copyright on songs from web sites. Knowing that I can put any PD questions up to you when I'm in doubt is a great relief!

I not only don't mind, but I've done the same, linking to your Christmas Short Works thread. I'll be contributing something to the Short Works project myself, though I don't know what it will be yet.

Yay! Our first caroler is on board! And I know Good King Wenceslaus is PD! Looking forward to your rendition.

Is this the forum for this year's Christmas carols, or is it in the short works forum? :hmm:

Cheers,
Ryan

P.S. - Hi, everybody! :D

Hello, again! I'd also like to sing Angels from the Realms of Glory.

And, I'm going to use this source: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=pst.000067569229;view=1up;seq=5
for this, as well as for Good Christian Men Rejoice, as it is much easier to read. Thank you!

Thank you, Amelia! I've reserved a slot for you in the MW, so it will show up in your workflow. We can fill in the name of the carol after you decide.

Thank you, Sister! I've put another section in the MW for you, and I've also made note of the amended source for both carols.
