Here is my recording of section 54, Psalm 54:

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/psalmesofdavid_054_sidney_128kb.mp3
1:18

Please let me know of any issues. I recorded it several times before I got something that satisfied me, so I hope nothing is too badly messed up.

Thanks,

M

Psalm 2

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/psalmesofdavid_002_sidney_128kb.mp3

1:56.27


Psalm 90 still under construction. Discovered new inferences with listening and re-(re)reading.
(As well as a couple of internal rhymes, those clever Elizabethans!!) 8-)

best,

Owlivia/Deborah

P.S. as far as acceptable volume levels? This is not quite 88 db. Please advise.

Hello, I finished psalms 113 and 121.

113: duration 1 min 14 sec

121: duration 1 min 50 sec
https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/psalmesofdavid_121_sidney_128kb.mp3

I did the test recording, so I think the technical details are worked out, but let me know if there are any issues/mistakes.
Thanks!

Thanks! A couple deviations from the text that should be changed, I think:

1:23 - "which leaved green, and flowred faire" - I hear Lowered
2:09 - "Make thou us wise" - missing "thou"
2:32 - "when thy hand hath us relieved" - I hear "hath relieved us" (this is a rhyme)

with corrections

2:55.15

n.b., for the corrections at 2:09 and 2:32, I re-recorded the remainder of the sentence for continuity.

And to think! still messed up after spending at least 2 hours in the recording process. Very challenging to get the tone/content just right. (Wonder if the process would be easier if someone were playing the dulcimer in the background. :D )

Thanks! PL OK.

I think sometimes we get blind spots when working on our own stuff. It takes a second set of ears to notice some things! :)
