I would like to request either the recording of (and would gladly help by recording myself) books of The Bible that have been 'cut' from modern, standard editions, due to them not being strictly cannon in most modern sects.
An example would include the Book of Enoch.

These have been suggested numerous times, but for some reason they've never developed into projects.

There's a PD text of the Book of Enoch here: http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/boe/

Keep in mind that although the texts are quite old, the translation itself has to be published 1922 or earlier to be PD. :)

I'll check for a translation in the PD, or I could probably ask one of my teachers to help translating it. I'd be more than willing to record it myself. I'll have to check as for what else would need to be done as for the project in that case seeing as it fell to bits before.

I found a website that claims that their sources/ books are within the Public Domain, I'll do a tad more checking just in case. It appears they have it.

It has to be a published pre 1923 translation for us to host it I'm afraid

Right (sorry for the spam posting, the school computer I'm using is a bit funky), it's in the public domain; the specific translation I have at the moment was made in 1882.


Right, I presume there's a forum page that lists exactly what jobs there are for making and uploading the files?
