May I claim sections 24, 28, and 32?
This is my first recording, so I'd like to appear as "Alex Warren" under the LibriVox Catalogue.
Thanks!

well here you have your desire, Chris :) I hope you like my interpretation. I took it as a challenge to enact these different emotions in the diverse stanzas.

Can I take sections 2, 3 and 4?

By The Woods of Dandenong, the author obviously means the Dandenong Ranges:

There aren't a lot of trees left in the Melbourne suburb of Dandenong.

Hi Alex, and welcome to Librivox! Great to have you aboard.

For the time being, I can reserve you these three poems for one month. This will give you the time to complete your one-minute-test, which we recommend, before you start recording anything in a project.

The test's purpose is to check that your technical settings are all up to LV standard. You can read all about it here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

Please post the test in the Listeners Wanted forum: viewforum.php?f=21 and someone will check it and give you feedback or advice if needed.

As soon as the test is ok'ed, please post the results back here, and then I can assign you the sections officially.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. :)

Good luck with the test !


Chris

Thanks, EJ, signing you up. Do I detect an Irish theme here? :D

Hi Algy!

Alan's already recorded Number 2 (Anacreon) for us, but I can definitely sign you up for Numbers 3 and 4.

I seem to recall that C. J. Dennis's "Jim of the Hills" narrative poems book was inspired by a stay up in the Dandenongs. Good spot for huge tree ferns. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_HcyShju5AYISpv0DV-gxqYbt4rf9c40/view?usp=sharing The trestle in the photo makes me think of Henry Lawson's "The Ironbark Chip". That's another story we should do as a DR! https://www.gutenberg.org/files/1231/1231-h/1231-h.htm#link2H_4_0006

Cheers,
Chris

Oops! I didn't intend to steal Alan's Thunder. I actually meant sections 3,4 and 5.

How about a DR of The Loaded Dog? Or The Rising of the Court?

Banjo Paterson's Three Elephant Power also contains a number of stories which would work well as DRs.

Cheers

Alan, Larry and Sonia,

Wow, guys! Movingly and expressively read, all of these poems. Thank you all so much!

#9 - Avatar - PL OK

#61 - IHS - PL OK
#62 - A Vision of Calvary - PL OK
#70 - To My Soul - I'll mark this as PL OK, with the optional correction re the line "Red-tongued it rushes, like a hound unchained" ... I think I'm hearing "unchanged" rather than "unchained"; but it doesn't jar the meaning, so I'm happy to accept it as is.

#6 - Desire - PL OK


Cheers,
Chris

Oh, thanks for catching that!
I recorded a correction, and made the same mistake! :shock:
So, one more take to get it right.
