Encyclical Letters of Pope Leo XIII by Pope Leo XIII (1810 - 1903).

A collection of 56 out of 88 encyclicals of Pope Leo XIII (1810-1903). ( )
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): TEXT LINKS ARE IN THE MAGIC WINDOW
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

      • AFTER recording
        Need noise-cleaning?
        Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

Note: Some of these are very long. Please be aware of the word counts before claiming. I only split two that were obviously going over 80 minutes. If one of the longer ones is found to need to be split, we can do that during the project.

As with previous Encyclical projects, please note the intro and outro format.

If anyone wants to dig for PD translations of the ones I could not find, here is the list. :-)

Hi Scott,

Welcome to LibriVox! Section 16 is all yours! Please read the first post of this thread carefully.

Please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal web site/blog.

Also, since this is your first recording, we ask that you send in a 1-minute test recording. This is not an audition, it's just to make sure the sound quality and the recording settings are all right - often things can be improved at the outset that are difficult to fix later. Please go to https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test to find out what to record for your 1-minute test, and how to upload the recording. In the LibriVox Uploader, please select 'tests - tests' from the MC drop-down, and then post your test recording in the Listeners Wanted forum, rather than in this thread - you'll get feedback more quickly there.

Thanks, and have fun!

Hi Maria

Thanks for the quick reply, I'll get on the audio the pronto but first I just wanted to ask if it's alright to use Cubase instead of Audacity to record as long as I keep the buffer size to 128kbps and sample rate at 44.1kHz. As for the pseudonym, Scott Roe is the name I would like to appear under.

Thanks Again

Hi Scott,

Yes, it is fine to use whatever program you like, as long as the settings are correct on the submitted file! :-)

Section 36

Does this drag a bit? I can tighten up the pauses if you wish.
Sunday is a good PL day for me.
