It took awhile to stop feeling nervous. Please let me know what I can improve upon.

Hey Foon!

If it will help, I'd be glad to PL Larry's five sections for you.

Just let me know!

:)
Thanks Nemo for the offer! I'm happy to do it myself (was just taking advantage of some quiet time for some recording of my own ;) ), but if you just want to listen to Larry's soothing voice for a few poems, be my guest ;)

No worries, they are all yours then .... I don;t want Larry to think we are fighting over his recordings! :lol:

Larry,

Great readings, as always :thumbs:

Sections 7 and 13 are PL OK

For 18 and 24, you've read the title of the poem as the start of the recording as "Sonnet [number]"--could you replace those with the titles as they're listed in the book's index/the MW?
So that'd be Sonnet "Shall the evil hag die" for 18, and οἱ ρἑοντες [oi reontes] for 24 (it's not actually a sonnet :) )
(I realise the notes column in the MW might be misleading--I just listed the poem numbers to easily distinguish between all things that are simply headed "sonnet" or "song")

Hi!
Thanks for your interest in the project! I've reserved these poems for you for know. However, before you get started, please start with completing a 1-minute test. This is not an audition, but rather, a way to make sure you have all your settings up to LV standards--which is easier to do on a short test recording than on a full section! The instructions for it can be found here:
http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test

Additionally, I would need to know under what name or pseudonym you'd like to be listed in the catalog.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Cheers,
Foon
