Speeches Against Catilina by Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 - 43 BCE).
With Introduction and Notes by Ernest Alfred Upcott (1858 - 1935)


This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: http://librivox.org/speeches-against-catilina-by-marcus-tullius-cicero/
This volume contains the four speeches delivered by Cicero in 63 BC, when he was a consul, against the conspiracy headed by L. Sergius Catilina. Catilina was scheming to bring about a general uprising in the country if he could not rise to a position of power by election. This volume includes an English introduction and notes on the speeches by E.A. Upcott.
The e-text used to produce this audiobook also includes further helpful study material for Latin scholars, which have been omitted from this audio version. ( 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.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/39355
    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!

      Magic Window:



      BC Admin Note: there is a large section with notes in the back of the text. We will not record it, but it may help you with the text.
    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Section [number] of Cicero's Speeches Against Catilina. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • Say:
        "Speeches Against Catilina, by Marcus Tullius Cicero. With Introduction and Notes by Ernest Alfred Upcott. [Title]"

        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
        "End of Speeches Against Catilina, by Marcus Tullius Cicero. With Introduction and Notes by Ernest Alfred Upcott (1858 - 1935)"

      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    8. 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.

Carolin,
May I please read the First Oration in Latin. I am not sure what section it corresponds to. Is it Section 4? There is a helpful English headnote at the beginning of each Section. May I read these. There are also end notes in the text, which I would like to omit as they break up the oratory.

Carolin,
I can also DPL all Sections but my one, if you would like. (I'm experienced as a DPL now as I am doing a project for Barbara2.)

Thanks, Carolin. I am doing the prep work now. Going to meet next Thursday with my Latin tutor for some last minute pointers and then I will record my section. In the meantime, ready to DPL!

Welcome to Librivox, Alina! And welcome to this project!

Carolin will be along soon. She is on Netherlands time and is 9 hours ahead of me in California.

I am the proof listener on this project, and I know that Carolin is going to want you to complete your one-minute test before recording to make sure that the technical aspects of your reading will be correct. This is not an audition just a technical preparation.

Please go to the Volunteer half of the home screen for Librivox and follow the links to Wiki for the one-minute test.

Again, I am very excited to have a new volunteer on this project!

Thank you for reaching out to me, Pam!

I am currently away now and will be back a week later. I will get started then and do the 1 minute test as well.

I will figure out how things work soon, thanks for your guidance!
