The Psalms: Three Classic English Translations by Various ( - 0). Translated by Various
The Psalms, traditionally ascribed to David the King, are regarded in the Christian tradition as the voice of Christ speaking through His ancestor David. They are 150 laments, hymns, and prayers whose origins span 8 centuries before Christ and continue to be prayed by Jews and Christians in virtually all languages, including the original Hebrew, and the once dominant Latin of St. Jerome. This LibriVox recording presents 3 classic English translations; that of Myles Coverdale (16th Century) included in the Anglican Book of Common Prayer; the King James Version (early 17th Century); and the contemporaneous 17th Century Roman Catholic translation by the exiled English scholars at Douai (later Rhiems), France, as revised by Bp. Richard Challoner in 1752. ( Fr. Richard Zeile)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

We'll need links to all the texts you're using, so we can verify that the sources are PD. (Some sites slap copyrights on their texts.) Also, we'll need them for the catalog.

There will also need to be some tweaking of the template - the author names, for example. Usually in Bible projects, we use the version name as the author, but since you're using 3 authors in each section, we'll have to do something else with this.

Once you've got the 3 text links posted and verified as OK, I'll take a look at the rest of the template for you and make suggestions. :)

Dear TriciaG:

Thank you for setting me up! :)

I had planned to read from ancient texts in my library, but the Gutenberg numbers are #8019 King James Version; #1610 Challoner's 1752 revision of the Douai-Rheims; and #29622 Coverdale's translation from the Scottish Book of Common Prayer.

I've had concerns with the Gutenberg texts in the past where a letter is misread (by the machine?); On one of the Psalms(I can't remember which one), Gutenberg had "Tearful" instead of "Fearful."

For the KJV and BCP versions, I wanted to read from The Parallel Psalter (Cambridge: At the University Press. 1899); I'll have to chase down my edition of the Challoner.

Cordially,

FrZeile

OK, if you're reading from hard copies, I'll need either scans or digital photos of the cover page and (if different) the page showing the copyright year / printing year. This is to assure that the editions you're reading from are truly PD in case any questions or challenges to the assertion come up later. :)

You cannot upload jpgs or other image files directly into the uploader, so you'll need to zip them up in a folder and send the zip file. You can send it to my uploader folder.

OK, I think you're set up. A couple notes:

1. I changed the intros a bit to get rid of the "by various, translated by various" stuff. What I picture is in the first file, give a bit more information in the intro, then in the subsequent ones, not quite as much. Then the final outro on the last file, give the full info again. You can record the authors (err, Bible versions) in whichever order you want in the intro/outro; I just slapped them in there.

2. ID tags aren't required for this. The new cataloging system will automatically enter them from the titles in the Magic Window and the other data in the database entry.

3. The file names have changed slightly since the old system. We now add a "_128kb" to it. See the sample file name in the first post as a guide. Also, since there are more than 100 sections, you'll need to use a 3 digit section number in the file name.

4. I've filled in the first couple section titles for you. I'm not sure what the plan is for section 0. :) You can fill in the rest either all at once, or as you go along.

5. As per my last PM, you've got "Matthew Coverdale" in your summary, but I think it's supposed to be Myles.

Ummm, I think that's about it. Let me know if you have any questions. :)

Thanks!

You are right about Coverdale's name :oops:

Moving this to Going Solo. Once a couple/few sections are up, we'll advertise for a DPL.

I should have brought this up before...

Psalm 119 is made up of 21 separate psalms, one for each letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Any thoughts as to how to break it up? Or should it be one long file?

In the two KJV recordings of Psalm 119, it runs about 15-20 minutes for the one version. So you could put all 3 versions in one file if you want - it should come in under the 72-80 minute (whatever it is!) length limit of an audio CD.

I don't think I'd divide it down into more than two sections. You could do a Psalm 119, part 1 and a Psalm 119, part 2; any more than that and it'd get confusing, I think.

In the Section Compiler (where you edit what shows in the Magic Window), you can add another section yourself. Just click the "Add Sections" button and fill in the info. It'll stick the line at the very bottom, but you can drag and drop it wherever you want it, if you need to rearrange things.

It might be a trivial consideration, but I'd like the section numbers and the Psalm numbers to match up... So unless I could do track 119B I guess I'll plan to have one big track. :hmm:

One big track it will be, then, since we can't do a B. :)
