Peter Bell: A Tale by William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/peter-bell-a-tale-by-william-wordsworth/
A ne'er do well's life is changed by an encounter with a stubborn animal. ( Matthew Schneider)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/files/12145/12145-h/12145-h.htm#fr1C
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    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!

This is set up. A couple notes:

- I put in 4 sections. You can add or remove sections as needed. (Well, you can add them; if any need removing, let me know and I'll do it since you cannot.)

- In the intro/outro wording, it defaults to "Chapter". If you want to say "Section" or "Part" or whatever other designation there, feel free.

- The Magic Window and so forth have changed since you were here last.

Detailed Instructions for accessing the Magic Window can be found in the document linked here: Instructions for Soloists

Video showing how to use the Magic Window (read the above document first - it has the information on how to log in for the first time, which this does not have):
Magic Windows / Section Compiler: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOP4tcr1kl8

Fill in the Section Title whatever you want to go in the ID tags, but without the section numbers.

When you upload a chapter, put the file duration (mm:ss) in the Notes field and the uploaded URL into the Listen URL field, and mark it from Assigned to Ready for PL.

Holler if you have questions. :)

Great! The Magic Window looks good so far.

You can put the file duration in the Notes field. I'll add it this time. :)

Great!

I've put in a post asking for a proof-listener. I'll go change it to indicate you've uploaded all sections. :thumbs:

And I just noticed this is still in the Launch Pad! I've moved it to Going Solo.

I'll put you in shortly. :) You'll be able to get into this Magic Window just like your solo, so you can change the Status as needed, depending on if a file is "PL OK" or if "Edits needed".

What a great reader! you completely immersed me in the poem.
I only have a couple of comments and not so sure that they are important, I'm a newbie to this...
3:53 you read Sat rather than Sate.
4:00 You read Each other instead of The other.
Loved listening to the reading

I think "sat" (past tense of sit) is correct: "sate" is an old spelling of sat, which appears in numerous places in this edition of Wordsworth's poems, such as line 25 of "Nutting" and in several of Dorothy's journal entries. I've corrected the misreading of "the other" in line 25 of "Peter Bell" in this file:

Perfect on Section 1.

Section 2: 8:44 - A head instead of His Head.
11:00 - Moonlit instead of Moonlight.

Section 3: 2:35 - There is a background notification bell or alarm?
6:43 - Same notification bell in the background.

Section 4: 2:20 - Moonlit instead of Moonlight.
4:18 - Added "Yet," no Yet in text.
15:39: - "And now Peter is taught to fell," should read "And now is Peter taught to fell.

I think the pronunciation "moonlit" (for the words spelled moonlight) is correct, for it's another obsolete British spelling of "moonlit" (like "sate" for "sat"). If it were "moonlight," that would imply that the river is called the "Moonlight River," which isn't correct. "Moonlit" seems to me to fit better with the sentences, acting as an adjective modifying river. But I'll leave it to you, TriciaG, to make the final determination!

I've fixed the other misreadings and the email notification bells in the background. Sorry about that! Need to remember to turn off my email when recording!

The revised files are uploaded into the Magic window.
