Psalm 84

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/psalmesofdavid_084_sidney_128kb.mp3

2:29.05

This recording requires some explanation, as I "corrected" 3 of what must be typographical errors in the original and of which Phil and Mary would surely approve: :wink:

O altars thine, most mighty in war, yea, most almighty. 

Thy altars, Lord! ah! Why should I from altars thine excluded-ly?
"ly" ?? Surely it would be "why should I from altars Thine excluded BE?" (recorded thusly)

how wells they dig in thirsty plain 

and eisternes make for falling rain.
"cisterns" as in water-catchers, surely. (recorded thusly)

Lastly:
Thou art the sun that shineth, thou art the buekler, 

There is no such thing as a buekler, I looked it up. However, "buckler" makes perfect sense in that context, and I recorded it accordingly.

I did leave in "leadeth" where "LED-eth" would complete the rhyme, later on, however.

Sadly, back in those days there was no such thing as a DPL to keep an eye on things! :mrgreen:

We await your decision, O Lady of the Language. :)

I have noticed that a lot of the lower case C's look like a lower case E - bad typeface! If you run across more words where a C makes sense instead of an E, go ahead with the C. :)

That "Excluded ly" I think it supposed to be "excluded lie" - as in "lie down". It fits the rhyme of "why should I" in the previous line, and it also makes sense. :) (Why should I lie excluded from thine altars?)

Psalm 84 - corrected so that Phil imagines LYING at the heavenly altar (? or is Mary? naah, I can't see anybody lying anywhere in those ridiculous petticoats they wore)...

Psalm 41
1:45 - "that I may once have might, their merits to requite" - I hear "once again have might, their merits to require"
2:06 - "whom thou" - I hear "whom though"

Psalm 84
0:25 - "Unto the God that liveth" - I hear "Unto God, the God that liveth"


Psalm 134
PL OK!

Psalm 144
2:27 - repeat:
Our store shall ay be full, yea, our store shall ay be full
(next line is "Yea shall such fullness find" and is OK)

Oops, missed one to PL:

Psalm 118:
0:26 - "Thou chosen Israel, alway" (i.e. always); I hear "away"

0:35 - "You that of sacred Aron came, be prest with me" - I hear "... Aron came prest with me" (different meaning/meter)

1:19 - a weird double breathing pattern in the silence

---

With that, I think I'm caught up on entering files into the MW and PL'ing. Let me know if I missed anything. :)
