Hi Roberto!

Welcome to LibriVox! I have you done for section 28, thank you! But, please make sure you do your one minute test first, before you record your section. That way, we can make sure your settings are where we need them to be. It will make your life much easier! Here is the link to the document telling you exactly what you need to do for that test. https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording

Hi Ann,

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/greatevents3_04_horne_128kb.mp3
Track Length 58:55.83 (m:ss.ss)

I usually do not like to bother moderators/admins.
I have a cold, so please let me know if I have to redo section 04. Looking from a different side though, it may actually fit within the grim chapter.
I usually do my own research diligently and compare renowned sites, documentaries and so on. But, my this section @35.39 I settled to adopt from biblespeak.org. It is very important for me as an Christian Orthodox. Other Christians pronounce it differently, as in Elijah - EELAY. The Aramaic pronounciation was ELOY. Matt and Mark translated it differently.

Eli Eli Lema Sabachthani
From https://biblespeak.org/eli-lema-sabachthani-pronunciation/

Also, relevant footnote please let me know if does not need to be there.

Mike
Thanks Mike!

It's funny, every time I have had a reader say that they had a cold and they think their section might need to be recorded again, I have never felt that it should be recorded again. It will sound a little different, but not that different. The only time I have people record a whole section over is for some technical issue that can not be fixed. The last one was because the volume was too high, as in 102 dB, and the whole recording was clipped so badly that I could barely understand what he was saying. But, those are rare!

My former pastor pronounced Eli as Eloy, but he is a scholarly type of person. I had not heard the biblespeak version, but I have no problem with that pronunciation either. It is nice that you are doing your research. Usually I'm the one people ask about pronunciation, and I normally don't have an opinion, except for Latin. And, even then, I don't really mind if the Latin is Classical or Church pronunciation, just as long as it is consistent.
Thank you Ann

Section 4 is PL OK! I didn't hear anything wrong with that recording! To me, it didn't sound like you have a cold at all. The text was pretty grim, so I think you handled it great.

Thank you Ann. I always appreciate any pointers. It takes time to get close to the direction of perfecting the the Art of Recording. It is like an actor who attempts to play all movie genre... Most do one or two, but not all.
