Commentary On The Book Of Genesis by Matthew Henry (1662 - 1714).

This project is complete! All audio files can be found in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/commentary-on-the-book-of-genesis-by-matthew-henry/

Quote:
This is another commentary by Matthew Henry, well known for his commentaries on the Bible, this one is on Genesis, the first book of the Bible. ( fiddlesticks)


This is an abandoned solo, brought back as a group project!
    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.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.ccel.org/ccel/henry/mhc.i.html
    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!

      Please read the numbers as shown here to lessen the confusion for listeners 'Numeral 1' for the latin numbers 'I', 'Number 1' for the normal numbers '1', 'Subscript 1' for the '(1.)' and 'sub point 1' for [1.]


      Please be sure to upload the link with the section number, not the chapter number. Thank you!

I'm full up on MC projects right now, but thought I'd post the project number in case it helps whoever picks up the project. :)

MW is in place! I've kept the sections as they were, so apparently Chapter 4 is also long and needs to be split in two parts. Check the text and choose a suitable place for the splitting.
I checked the discussions in the old thread and there seemed to be an issue with the numbering, as there are various points, sub-points, sub-sub points, etc, in the text. Maybe you can find a way to handle the numbering, and suggest that to readers, so that it's consistent in the group project.

Thanks Rapunzalina!!! I will fill the MW with word counts when I have time, hopefully today, but if not then tomorrow. I noticed the problem with the numbering, and am thinking about a solution, though I have not gone through it carefully yet. I cannot decide if I want to DPL or not, typical indecisive me :roll: so I thought we could stay on the launch pad for a few days and if no one volunteers I will.

sections 1, 2, and 3 had a lot of pl notes, so many the soloist said that they just needed to be redone, so I was wondering why they are marked PL OK in the MW?

Yes, I marked those PL OK. I read through the previous thread to find the PL notes; it was the numbering issue. The soloist changed the way he read the numbers from the 4th section on, and so he decided to redo the previous sections to apply the same numbering. I marked them PL OK because I don't think it's worth rerecording just for that, but you may decide to have them redone, up to you! ;)

The way he did it in those first sections was just reading the numbers "one, two, three," etc so it may be unclear to the listener, which is a main point, which a sub-point, etc.
while, from the 4th section on, he used: 'Numeral 1' for the latin numbers 'I', 'Number 1' for the normal numbers '1', 'Subscript 1' for the '(1.)' (but there are also [1.] in some cases...)

Hi all,

Just thought I'd drop in here, and hopefully provide some history, as I was the original DPL. :)

All 5 sections were originally PL OK! While recording the sections, Drew felt the original reading of the numbering was confusing to himself and listeners (I agreed), so he began to make the difference noted above, beginning with Section 4. So for consistency, he wanted to go back and adjust sections 1, 2, and 3 after the other sections were submitted. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to continue the project. :(

Also, about this time (Dec. 2013), a discussion in another thread (viewtopic.php?p=962097#p962097) regarding a recommendation or LV practice of using Word-Perfect PL for Biblical and other sacred writings, caused Drew to change the PL to Word Perfect (it began as Standard). That's why there was a large increase in PL notes for the later Sections. Both Drew and I were relatively new at the time, so were both unaware of the Word-Perfect practice for such works. :oops:

<tb>

Unfortunately, due to emphasis more on reading/recording than on PLing, I cannot (re-)volunteer for the DPL position at this time. Good luck and enjoyable recording of such monumental work.

Best,
Don

Thank you both for you input, I had been thinking of something like that for the numbering, So I will probably stick with it. I decided to leave the PL standard, because if I pl, I can't read along with the text or I get a headache. So, I hope that is alright. That is one reason I love LV, in the summer I can't read much, because of the heat and my light sensitive eyes so this is perfect!

And the MW is filled out, I will start working on the note for numbering.

EDIT: I have added a note for the numbering, do you think it sounds OK?

Yes, as this is not a sacred writing, but rather a commentary on one, PL standard is fine. :)

EDIT :D

Yes, it's clear to understand and I think it will sound OK, especially since it follows the soloist's pattern.

I will be along to read something. I've got some big projects to put away first. I might consider DPL. I suspect this one will take a while considering the long sections. I just did a Wesley sermon of over 7,000 words and it was more than an hour of raw recording! This would have been a huge solo project.

Thanks for picking this one up!

Sounds great! I PLed a lot of his commentary on Matthew and it was really good, so I when I saw this I just had to pick it up, even if it will be a lot more work!
If you want to PL I would love to have you! No pressure though :D

Well, go ahead and put me in as DPL. I don't think I'll get swamped with it, if you can PL sections that I may record.

Wonderful, So excited to be working with you!! And I will gladly PL any of your sections
I could be wrong, but I think this will probably be a slow project, so ya, I don't think it will swamp you.
