Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

There are two notes for section 18 - again, these are at your discretion.

5.53-5.57
…especially as there's not a vestige of truth in the suggestion.

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats - jn

Ha! I think we've all been there. It's saved with the extra silence this time, so it's all fine and dandy. PL OK! As we're about to work together on the Wilde bio, I'll just mention it now - I run the files through Checker as a sort of backup, and on this particular one it registered fairly high bac...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

For section 17, I have a few optional notes. Most pertain to pronunciations, and where Oxford/Lexico and Howjsay provided the same pronunciation, and only one, I've just given the link for the former website. If you're having trouble hearing it, I'll find another way. It's entirely up to you if you'...

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats - jn

Thank you! There is some late Halloween gremlin or something though, because I am still hearing/seeing about a tenth of a second at the start. I'm sorry to be a pain, but could you give it another shot? The email notifications sometimes take a few minutes to come through. Is that perhaps what you're...

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats - jn

Thank you, chaps!

Rob, I have one note for your recording - the opening silence is quite short. Could you please add a bit to bring it up to half a second or a second? Other than that, congrats on your first Legamus recording!

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

It's taken longer than I would like to listen, but section 15 is PL OK. The Parisian drawing room is such a contrast to the early sunsets that it's perfect listening material for this time of year. Don't worry unduly about making your recordings 'perfect'. If it's any consolation, I struggle with th...

Re: Hello all!

Hello Rob, First, welcome! It's nice to see another member on these boards. I'm sorry that I can't advise you about copyright in this particular case, but I hope that you can find someone who is more up to speed on the intricacies of manuscript PD dates. It's an excellent thing that you are trying t...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Sections 5, 6, 10 and 11 are PL OK. By all means go ahead and mark sections 7 and 9 PL OK. I fully sympathise with changing your setup mid-project. I've done that, and in one instance had to bin about a third of a novel because the sound was just so different. I've not noticed a dramatic change with...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Section 14 is PL OK.

It's yet a little way off, but for most of September and bits of October I'll be away from my desk and, I suspect, slow to respond. I'm not running off, but PLing is likely to be sporadic.

Section 12 is PL OK.

I've been concentrating on the PL notes, but I wanted to pause for a moment and say how glad I am that you're doing this book. It's really a public service to make such an important work available.

Peter, your reading is absolutely superb. There's just one note - the end silence is 10 seconds long. Could you please trim it to 5?

There's one note for section 11 - it's 84.1 dB.

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

I have one note for section 10. There's a paragraph that's about 90% recorded, which then breaks off just before the end of a sentence. I'm guessing it might have been an aborted version. The passage starts at 31.52: Meanwhile the winter was drawing to an end. and goes on to 33.04, when it cuts off ...

Please do re-upload! The generated url on Legamus isn't guess-able and consistent in the way that it usually is on LV, so it's safest to put the link in the post every time. Unless of course you're simply trying to build suspense!

As you were very careful with pronunciation in an earlier chapter, there's one note for section 09.

23.16-23.19 - check pronunciation of sidereal

With a teaser like that, how could I resist?

Do you have the link still, by any chance?
