Twelve Good Musicians: From John Bull to Henry Purcell by Frederick Bridge (1844 - 1924).

Brief sketches of the lives and music of 12 well-known musicians. ( KevinS)
    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/39935
    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

      ============================================

      Do not trouble yourselves with any footnotes.
    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: viewtopic.php?p=6430#p6430

      Set your recording software to:
      Channels: 1 (Mono)
      Bit Rate: 128 kbps
      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    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)
      • "Chapter [number] of Twelve Good Musicians: From John Bull to Henry Purcell. 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:
        "Twelve Good Musicians: From John Bull to Henry Purcell, by Frederick Bridge. [Chapter]"

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Chapter]"
      • If you wish, say:
        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
        "End of Twelve Good Musicians: From John Bull to Henry Purcell, by Frederick Bridge. "

      There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

      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 latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      twelvegoodmusicians_##_bridge_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. twelvegoodmusicians_01_bridge_128kb.mp3)


      Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
      Transfer of files (completed recordings) Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.

I will DPL, with one exception. I would like to read the chapter for Henry Purcell (Ch. 12, with Note.)

The book is also available here: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/39935. If this is more convenient for readers, I can replace the source material's link to this.

These are the musicians covered:

I. DR JOHN BULL, 1563 (?)—1628
II. WILLIAM BYRD, 1542-3—1623
III. THOMAS MORLEY, 1557—1603
IV. THOMAS WEELKES, 1575 (?)—1623
V. ORLANDO GIBBONS, 1583—1625
VI. RICHARD DEERING, 1580 (?)—1630
VII. JOHN MILTON, 1553—1646-7
VIII. HENRY LAWES, 1595—1662
IX. MATTHEW LOCKE, 1630 (?)—1677
X. PELHAM HUMFREY, 1647—1674
XI. DR JOHN BLOW, 1648—1708
XII. HENRY PURCELL, 1658—1695
E agora, José?

Hi, Kevin!
I will set this one up for you.
I think we'd better use the Gutenberg link as text source, as it is much easier to work with than the archive scan.
Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

Kevin, will you be adding approximate word/page counts for other chapters, so that potential readers know what they are getting into?
If so than I will wait for you to add them before moving to Readers Wanted.

That's a good idea. Yes, please wait for that. I'll do that today for certain.

All done! That was easier than I thought it would be.

Gosh, that's excellent. If you want to take one to begin with, I won't mind, but I'll put you down for both.

I'm really excited to see interest in this subject. I was feeling very nerdy, or whatever the word might be.

That would be wonderful! I'll mark you down for Chapter 4 but ask that you complete the one-minute test. You'll get a lot of good feedback from that test. (I heard your recording and your voice is nice and clear, but someone will be able to help you soon with the hiss that one hears in your set-up.)

I will add you as soon as I learn how to add a new reader to our system. (I'm am the WORST computer person!)

Welcome aboard!

EDIT: You're in the system!

It is 7:01 minutes and I managed to get the white noise out from my background.
