Section 31 is good except for one little thing. A about 5:58 you read a foot note describing the harp. Generally in Librivox, the footnotes are not read and I haven't heard any other footnotes in the Finnish Legends project. I think for the sake of being consistent, the section at 5:58 can simply be deleted. The word for the harp is explained in context in the next few sentences and the footnote is not really needed to understnand the story.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,

Section #16 is definitely not terrible. It sounds good, but there is one little technical issue. At around 4:04 until about 4:16 it sounds like you are whispering. If you could select just that short section and amplify it a bit the section will be perfect.

Thanks,

Ha!

Nice to know, that this was good enough! (At least my setup is quite nice if everything else fails!)
You are, indeed, correct! I apparently had for some reason gain control for that clip... Well, now that part is up by 9 dB :)
Here's the updated version!
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/finnishlegends_16_eivind_128kb.mp3 [11:03]

This is a bit premature, but I'm quite sure there is a significant chunk missing from section 17.
I do not really know what to do about it, as the text just jumps to a completely different place mid-sentence as seen here:

[the second paragraph of section 17]
Then Wainamoinen considered how he should be able to walk over the needles and swords and hatchets, and at last hit on a plan.
He went to the smith Ilmarinen and bade him make shoes of iron, and gloves of copper, and a magic staff of the sent by mighty Ukko, for if so I will be resigned, but if thou art of some human race, I will search out thy tribe and destroy it.
Leave my body, cease thy forging, let me rest in peace and slumber.
Or if thou wilt not leave me, I will call on all the great magicians of the past, the spirits of the mountains and woods and seas and rivers, on Ilmatar, daughter of the ether, to assist me.
Or if these be not sufficient, I will call on mighty Ukko to drive thee forth.
If thou art from the winds, then return to the copper mountains where they live; if from the sea, return to it; if from the forests, then return to them, or I will drive thee to the bottom of the coal-black river of Tuoni, whence thou shalt never move again.'

Any advice how to proceed?
