Music, when soft voices die
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many Librivox volunteers as possible!

This week's poem can be found here.

Please be sure that your recording software is set to the following technical specifications:
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz

Have questions on "how"?
Check LV's Recording Notes thread before recording: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430
If this is your first recording, you'll also find this useful: http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/NewbieGuideToRecording

Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
Music, when soft voices die by Percy Bysshe Shelley, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]


Then read the poem:

MUSIC, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory;
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken;

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heap'd for the belovèd's bed:
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.



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



Please leave a few 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: music_shelley_[your initials].mp3
(ex. music_shelley_klh.mp3)

ID3 tags (Version 2):
Title: Music, when soft voices die - Read by [YOUR INITIALS] (ex. Music, when soft voices die - Read by KLH)
Artist: Percy Bysshe Shelley
Album: LibriVox Weekly Poetry
Comments: (optional) Recorded by [your name]

All too long. But depending on how things go over the next few months, I may be able to re-establish a long-term presence here... no promises yet, though.
