Had so much fun recording this!! Sorry for the delay. I had a bit of an issue pronouncing some of the names which I could't find the pronunciation for online so in case you need me to redo them please tell me.
Thank you so much!!!!!!!!

Chapter 6 here:

https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/georgics_06_virgil_128kb.mp3

Hope it's OK, I made a number of mistakes and had to do a lot of repairs; one section in the middle I patched in still sounds different from the rest in spite of a lot of fiddling and adjustment. :(

Time: 14.45 approx.
It sounds fine to me! I can hardly tell a difference. The only issue I could find (and I am very nit-picky!) is that there are 6.5 seconds of silence instead of 5 at the end of the file. If you could edit and re-upload that would be great. Thank you, Lucy!
Will do. (Sorry, only just picked this up!)

section 2 is uploaded
Section 2 sounds great! The volume of the file is a little loud at 92.4 dB, so it needs to be de-amplified - let me know if you need instructions on how to do this. We aim for 89 dB, with an acceptable range of 87-91 dB. Please edit and re-upload using the same file name. Post in this thread when the recording is ready for spot PL. Thanks!

Thanks, Shreya! Beautiful reading. I only have one PL note for you - there is a repeat at 13:43 ("yet deeper intimations" x2). Please edit and re-upload. Thanks!
