One Lovely Name by Walter Savage Landor (1775 - 1864).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/one-lovely-name-by-walter-savage-landor/

Walter Savage Landor (1775 - 1864) was an English writer, poet, and activist. Today he is best known for his collection of Imaginary Conversations between historical celebrities and his pithy aphoristic verses. ( Algy Pug)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
This week's poem can be found here.

Set your recording software to:
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz

Have questions on "how"?
Check LV's Recording Notes thread before recording. If this is your first recording, you'll also find this Newbie Guide to Recording useful.
Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:

No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
One Lovely Name by Walter Savage Landor, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal URL.]
Then read the poem:
ONE lovely name adorns my song,
And, dwelling in the heart,
Forever falters at the tongue,
And trembles to depart.


At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
Save your recording as an mp3 file using the following filename and ID3 tag format:
File name - all in lowercase: onelovelyname_landor_your initials_128kb.mp3

ID3 tags (Version 2): ID Tags are completed during Cataloging

*Readers, please check back in a day or so for any feedback regarding your reading.

*Best to copy the filename provided above into the LV Uploader, inserting your initials of course. :wink:

Your reading is PL OK.

I have no idea if this matters, but I'll mention it for David just in case it is important for cataloguing: this project isn't (or wasn't for me) showing up as a weekly/fortnightly when I searched the catalogue for the open weekly/fortnightly projects today. Assuming that makes any difference, of course!
