The Elder Eddas of Saemund Sigfusson; and the Younger Eddas of Snorre Sturleson by Saemund Sigfusson (1000 - 1057) . Translated by Rasmus B. Anderson (1846 - 1936).
The most complete set of the epic Norse eddas, or poems. It contains in beautiful verse the pagan beliefs of the Old Norse. Luckily in this work, both the Elder Eddas of Saemund Sigfusson and the Younger Eddas of Snorre Sturleson are presented, and you may find a version of the Nibelunglied that aren't as familiar with. Numerous authors including Tolkien and Martin have acknowledged their debt to and appreciation for these traditional works. (Summary by Becky Cook)

I've set the MW up
re the ID tags - a couple of points
I have had a request to keep the fields less than 44 characters as their player only displays 44.
The author and title need to be the same for all the files - so either come up with something that fits , or use various. If you are filling in section titles please start them all in the pattern 00 - Preface etc

Have fun , it doesn't look an easy read but it will be a great addition to the catalogue

Great, I'll get the window set up tonight or tomorrow afternoon.

Its a long read, but most of the sections are fairly short in themselves, so I think that will help. I think I will go with Various since there are two authors, and two translators. SHould I edit the description at all?

re summary
Maybe see what you think later - I was a bit puzzled about the verse description - it looks like prose to me - but I am no expert :D ,
and one sentence puzzled me
and you may find a version of the Nibelunglied that aren't as familiar with

But I am happy to wait till you have read more , They are one of the things that I have heard of but never studied - apart from "A Child's book of Old Norse Tales" :D

The Niebelungenlied part will make more sense when we get to the second half of the Elder Eddas. The Norse have a slightly different version of the same story.

I was thinking for the ID Tags it could read
Artist Name: Sigfusson & Sturleson
Album Title: The Elder Eddas and the Younger Eddas

With the file format name of eddas_01_various.mp3
Would that work? That way the ID3 tags are under 40 characters. I can add this to the MW as well.

THe shorter file name would be good
It was the English of the summary I didn't understand , I felt there was a word missing somewhere- does it make sense to you ? If so leave it. I'm sure Wagner took as much liberties with the tale as Disney does :D

The ID tags look good :D

Thanks Catrose! Just so you know I tend to go in spurts. I record and edit about every other weekend, so take your time with these there probably wont be any more recordings for a week.

I've added Catrose as DPL - welcome aboard - I notice you have taken on a large number of PLing jobs - if you find you can't keep up just let us know and we will advertise for some one else.

FYI as we have a DPL - what you need to do if you need a listener is to go to the Listeners waanted forum and there is a sticky there which explains what to do.
You can't add a DPL - only an admin can :D (We have to have some uses :mrgreen: )
