Spoken Hymns and Readings for the Easter Vigil by King James Version (KJV) ( - ) and others.

Spoken hymns and readings for a shorter form of the Easter Vigil liturgy. (KevinS)
  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 month 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 one month, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request a reasonable 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 one month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10900; https://archive.org/details/TheBookOfEaster/page/n12/mode/1up

I will read the introduction and close for this recording. It is to be just one section after I have stitched together the eleven hymns and readings. There will be two hymns, seven readings from the Old Testament, and two readings from the New Testament.

I will PL the individual sections before the editing is done and will need some, please, to check the final collection of material.

Here are my working notes.

Sec. 1
Final assembly

Sec. 2
Opening hymn. The reader's choice from one of the hymns listed in the Book of Easter.

Sec. 3
Gen. 1:1, 26-31a

Sec. 4
R. Ps. 33: 4-5, R. (5b), 6-7, R. , 12-13, R., 20-22, R. [Where R. is the responsorial.)

Sec. 5
Gen. 22:1-2, 9a, 10-13, 15-18

Sec. 6
R. Ps. 16:5, 8, R. (1), 9-10, R., 11, R. [Definitely need to check this numbering.]

Sec. 7
Exodus 14:15-15:1

Sec. 8
R. Exodus 15:1-2, R. (1b), 3-4, R., 5-6, R., 17-18, R.

Sec. 9
Romans 6:3-11

Sec. 10
R. Ps. 118:1-2, R. (Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.), 16-17, R., 22-23, R.

Sec. 11
Mark 16:1-7

Sec. 12
Closing hymn. The reader's choice from one of the hymns listed in the Book of Easter. [We'll have to make sure that it is not the same as the opening hymn.]

I'm still unsure if the responses should begin their respective sections as there will not actually be a congregation joining in these. Opinions much appreciated for before I begin the scripts. It might be nice to begin with them in case the listener wants to join in. He or she would then hear them before the reading begins.

This is just a working document. I'm actually taking the reading suggestions (numbering) from my faith tradition's lectionary, so I need to compare this with the King James.

Does everyone think that we can find 11 unique readers for this. No more than two sections per reader if that's not the case.

How many did you get for the Advent recording? You can try limiting to one section and after a while if you don't have enough readers you could open it up for people to add a second section if you wanted. You can count me in to read something unless you don't want to hear my voice. :)

You have a wonderful voice!

I do like the idea of lots of voices. It makes me feel as though I'm actually in church.

Love to do the opening hymn.👍

We can discuss which hymn it should be 😺

I would be happy to do both hymns if that isn't being greedy.😾

Thank you! You have the opening for certain. (Maybe the close, too.)

You have Section 3. Genesis! (But not the whole thing!)

I'll try to figure out how to make an active link to the script. (I'm working on it.)

"Eastertide" for the opening. I'm still undecided about your taking the close, too, though I'm very grateful for your enthusiasm. Shall we just wait a bit before deciding?

Also, do you mind working from the archive text or shall I make a Google Doc for you?
