Songs of the Sea and Lays of the Land by Charles Godfrey Leland (1824 - 1903).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/songs-of-the-sea-and-lays-of-the-land-by-charles-godfrey-leland/
This is a volume of poetry by Charles Godfrey Leland. The first half of this volume is taken up by the Songs of the Sea, with rather romantic songs about seafaring, mermaids, and adventures, and the second half of the volume contains the Lays of the Land, with poems focused on the things a seaman may encounter when he enters a port. ( 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/50666
    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

      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.

the preface needs a full intro
"Preface to Songs of the Sea and Lays of the Land. 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:
"Songs of the Sea and Lays of the Land, by Charles Godfrey Leland. Preface"

Outro: End of Preface.

May I read some?

Start with #3, El Captain General

I'd also like to try the preface. Seems like good practice for longer prose.

Thank you stephen!

I didnt add this to the magic window but the preface needs the long intro, viewtopic.php?p=1402151#p1402151 it isnt a poem, so no poetry disclaimer :) thank you :thumbs:

More cuts than I wished for the preface. Let me know if you notice any of them.

https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/songsoftheseaandlaysoftheland_01_leland_128kb.mp3 8:28
https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/songsoftheseaandlaysoftheland_03_leland_128kb.mp3 4:1

I notice there is one poetic quotation before the main set of poetry. Should this be part of the preface, it's own entry, or left off?

I'd like to read #12 and #15.

Good Evening Carolin,

I'd love to read #14 The Merman. I'm pretty excited because this will be my first reading on Librivox. What is the deadline to complete the reading once it's assigned? Thanks so much!!

Warm wishes,
Hilary
