Orpheus and Other Poems by Edward Burrough Brownlow (1857 - 1895).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project http://librivox.org/orpheus-and-other-poems-by-edward-burrough-brownlow/
This is a volume of poetry by Canadian poet Edward Burrough Brownlow, published posthumously after his death in 1896. The poems in this volume have varied subjects, reflecting the interests of the poet. ( Carolin)
    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.
      Please note that we handle a one month deadline for poetry projects!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/53800
    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!

      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      • At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
      "[Poem title], by Edward Burrough Brownlow, read for LibriVox.org" by [your name] or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.

    8. At the end of the book, say (in addition):

    9. 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 new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

      Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

Hi Carolin -

Me again.... There is no Section 7 "Sonnet" reading. There IS a Section 12 "Sonnet" reading in its proper place. It is an error I think in the Table of Contents I think. If you go to the TOC and click on the Sonnet that is listed after "A Ballade of the Street" it links you to the Sonnet that is listed after "Purpose" which is really Section 12 Sonnet reading. There is no "Sonnet" poem written to record in the web version after "A Ballade of the Street" either.

I did not check other versions of the book (such as text, .pub) as you have said to record from the web version of the book previously.

I hope this makes sense.... I am going to skip Section 7 and move onto Section 8....

thank you lynda.

please always wait for my answer when you run into a problem or have a question.

you are right i was following the table of contents and so i didnt notice that there was an extra sonnet in the table of contents that didnt exist in the text. i have deleted the superfluous sections seven, which reordered all subsequent sections. your following five sections therefore have the wrong section number now. i dont think i will be able to access the server that soon, so may i ask you to reload those with the corrected section number? thanks!
