I've got a headache tonight, so I won't listen just yet.

Good question about the author/translator! I see we don't have this carol in our catalog yet, so we can't go with precedent. I'll see what others say, if they have an opinion. :)

Yes, multi-tracks -- (1) piano (2) soprano melody (3) soprano harmony (4) alto melody and the coup-de-grace, (5) a special appearance by some chimes from my door bell.

Shall I put in Mr. Baker as translator, since I sang the English words?

The one admin who responded thinks it should be "unknown" rather than the translator. I'm still undecided. :)

I'll just leave it for now. As long as I remember to come back to it before cataloging. :thumbs:

I just spent the entire evening fighting with my computer over an unwanted Windows update, and when I finished growling and tooth-gnashing, and finally got my computer working again, the first thing I found waiting for me was your fresh Christmas carol -- Just what I needed to cheer me up!

Thank you, Robin, for this lovely rendition of another good old favorite! It's in the MW as PL OK! :thumbs:

Hi There,

For my first contribution to Librivox I would like to contribute to this project. I have done the 1 minute test and that's it.

I have a wee bit of experience with recording music and am an experienced amateur musician.

My first song will be "We Three Kings of Orient Are"
I'll have a look on the linked websites to get some regulation music. I'll do the music by on some keyboards I have sequenced from my computer, sing and probably put in a bit of brass (Soprano Cornet) I might get a band mate to record some tuba, but not sure yet.

Once I've got that down, I'll do some more maybe.

Cheers,

Sam

Welcome, Sam! Thank you for choosing this collection for your first LV contribution! I hope you find it fun!

"We Three Kings" is definitely a carol that's old enough to be in the public domain. Make sure you use lyrics that are from a PD source - (just in case some modern version has changed words or added new verses, which we couldn't use.)

For the musical accompaniment, there is a bit of flexibility. You may use an old PD accompaniment from a pre-1923 source. Or if you choose, you may create your own original musical accompaniment. (It sounds like this may be what you have in mind.) But you may not use an accompaniment from any source that is still under copyright.

Since this will be your first recording for LibriVox, please let me know under what name would you like to appear in the LV catalog. This will be the name you use when you say "Recorded by [name]..." Some people just use their forum name, some people use their real name, it's entirely up to you. You can view your LV Catalog page by clicking your forum name in the Magic Window. If you have one, we can put a personal website link on your catalog page too.

I look forward to hearing your carol!

Thanks Maria. Being partially sighted I tend to miss some things, like, the file name has only two c's instead of ccc. Can that be fixed on your side, or must I upload another file? :oops:
