The Life of God in the Soul of Man by Henry Scougal (1650 - 1678).


( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://ccel.org/s/scougal/life/cache/life.pdf
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

Welcome!

Two comments:

(1) There is already a recording of this in the catalog, here: https://librivox.org/the-life-of-god-in-the-soul-of-man-by-henry-scougal/ However, that doesn't mean someone cannot do another version. Some people prefer to record things that are not already in the catalog, which is why I mention it.

(2) We do STRONGLY encourage a one-minute test (LINK) to check your technical settings. It's not an audition, but to make sure you're exporting at the correct bit rate, have your recording in mono, etc. It would be a shame to record a whole section (or project!), only to have to scrap it and redo it because of some simple setting that is incorrect.
