:lol: thank you, Pier, and sorry, I didn't want to provoke you (only give you ideas :mrgreen: )
Your Latin sounds really good. Did you learn it in school or is it a private interest ?

Just one note, usually we prefer not to do just excerpts, but a whole part, so is there a reason, why you only recorded the first two stanzas ? Did you first want to check whether it would be acceptable ? I know it's quite a long text, but maybe you could do the first Eclogue entirely ? (about 500 words more :? )

Also, your text source is not really valid for LV, since it's not clear this version is in the public domain. I found the text on Gutenberg, and I checked against that one, and the text is the same, so it's good here. But if you record the rest, could you read from this source please, just to be sure: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/229/229-h/229-h.htm#ecloga01

Also could you say "Ecloga 1" in the intro, as this text calls them Eclogae instead of Bucolicae ?

thanks

Sonia
Sonia,
I was saying "provoking" in the sense of giving me ideas, indeed! In a positive way! :lol:
I studied Latin in school (“Liceo classico”, classic high school), but I still remember something, and I like it. As an exercise of Latin metric, we studied (such a long time ago!) actually just the first Ecloga. :D

Yes, I did only the first two stanzas to be sure that the idea was acceptable before going on. Latin poetry read following (or better trying to follow! :wink: ) the prosody and metric rules
is not always so easy to understand. I suggest therefore any listener (unless he/she is really a good Latin expert) to listen to this section following at the same time, the written text, if possible.

I shall go on now with pleasure, reading the first Eclogue entirely.

Thanks for the link to the text on Gutenberg: I’ll follow it, calling the poetry “Ecloga1”
Pier

I would like to contribute with a little long speech (but probably one of the best ever written in Spain) of the great but not always properly regarded Gaspar Melchor de Jovellanos.

URL for the mp3 file from the Uploader - https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/msw021_panytoros_jovellanos_epk_128kb.mp3
Duration of recording (33:14) -

Title of work - Pan y toros
thank you, Epachuko, for the excellent reading again. The subject of text is quite controversial nowadays. I never heard of this author before.

The text itself is read without errors, but at the end you leave 10 seconds instead of only 5. We used to have this rule that recordings over 30 minutes need 10 seconds of silence, but we standardized this a while ago: 5 seconds for every text, no matter how long.

The rest is fine.

thank you, Pier, looking forward to the rest of the Eclogue. :9:

Thank means this project has 20 submissions. I think this time we were quite rapidly filling up.

yes there has been a discussion about it some time ago last year I think. And there it was decided that the standard should be 5 seconds for all recordings, no matter how long. We only need to take care to update the template, because I think the old "rule" is still in :lol:

thank you, this is PL ok now but you uploaded to the wrong folder, the MC for this project is icequeen, not me ;) But no need to reupload, we can fish it out and put it in the right folder.

Ann: the file you currently have in your folder is the old one, can you transfer the correct one from my folder or should I do that ?

this was interesting to listen to, I notice that in Italy you learn a different pronunciation for Latin than we here do, and also different from the English countries. Yours is much closer to the Italian already. Interesting rhythm in the poem as well, it was almost lulling me :lol:

Well done, Pier, Ecloga can be marked as PL ok.

This means, the project is complete. :9:

Ann, I did not input all the metadata yet, and some authors have to be put in the database still. But for the rest, all is fine.

Thank you all for a great collection again !

The Latin pronunciation is object of many discussions, especially concerning the letters c and g. In fact in Italy the Latin pronunciation can differ from the use common in other language (see http://www.latinamente.it/hyperlatino/187-la-lettura-metrica-della-poesia-latina.html?showall=1 Sorry this web site is in Italian! :(

The rhythm comes from my trying to follow the rules of "metrica"and that means that it is quite different from what it would sound read as prose, especially regarding the scanning of words and their accentuation

yes, we learnt that you have to read the c as k, even if there is an i or e after. So yours sounds more Italian ;)

but that's ok, there are no native speakers here anymore who would complain :lol:

oh I understand enough Italian to read this, don't worry :) thanks !

Being one of those crazy people involved with Latin, I will stay out of the thorny discussion of pronunciation! :lol:

thank you, Epachuko. It wouldn't have been much trouble though. But I changed the link in the MW now with the correct one, and everything is fine now :)
