Hey Carolin! Can you orphan sections 2 and 3? I won’t be able to complete them in a timely manner.

I would like to claim section 2, The Seventh Chapter,

Also, is this a nonfiction account or a fictional story framed in a convincing way?

Section 2 is yours.

According to Wikipedia,
The Amber Witch is a German novel published by Wilhelm Meinhold in 1838. Its German title is Maria Schweidler, die Bernsteinhexe. The novel was originally published as a literary hoax which purported to be an actual 17th-century chronicle.

The seventh chapter contains what I believe to be a poem in Latin. This is a test recording in which I tried my best to get the pronunciations correct, but I would like some constructive criticism before I make my final draft and incorporate it into the section recording.

section 2 poem, 1:29

Uno pane vivunt cives utriusque patriae;
Avidi et semper pleni, quod habent desiderant.
Non sacietas fastidit, neque fames cruciat;
Inhiantes semper edunt, et edentes inhiant.
Flos perpetuus rosarum ver agit perpetuum;
Candent lilia, rubescit crocus, sudat balsamum,
Virent prata, vernant sata, rivi mellis influunt;
Pigmentorum spirat odor liquor et aromatum,
Pendent poma floridorum non lapsura nemorum.
Non alternat luna vices, sol vel cursus syderum.
Agnus est faelicis urbis lumen inocciduum.

I am not knowledgeable enough to comment, but will seek input from those who may know more.

Failing that, you can ask for assistance in the Pronunciation Help thread in the Need Help forum

I received this response:
Not bad. If this is from "The Amber Witch" by Wilhelm Meinhold, I think the Latin should be pronounced as church Latin, rather than as classical Latin. The reader does this mostly correctly (pronouncing the "v" as vee, for example) but with the following suggestions:

Cives--chives
Sacietas--sachi-ay-tas
perpetuus--pehr-petoo-oos
Agit--ajit
Inhiant--in-hee-ahnt
Rubescit--rubeshit
Influunt--infloo-unt
Non--nohn
How far you implement these suggestions is up to you.

I'll use the suggestions to the best of my ability, thank you very much, and let them know I appreciate the help!
