Hi there,

Here are my three recordings for this project
Thank you, Aysh! These are great! :9:
Just one PL note for "Insult not the fallen" there's a pause around 0:24 where the phrase "to sin" is missing.
The author is Victor Hugo (poems originally written in French), and the names mentioned under the poems are the translators in English. If it's not too much trouble, would you change the intro to something like "[poem title], by Victor Hugo, translated by [translator's name]" ?

Hello Rapunzellina
Please find the attached poem
Thank you, Refilwe!!
Technically the recording is PL OK, but we might be able to improve the sound quality, regarding background noise, and volume stability. :) Let's start at the beginning: what kind of equipment do you use (microphone, operating system, recording/editing software, etc), and then, what kind of editing do you do to your recording (for example, do you do any noise reduction or amplifying)?

Thank you, Rapunzelina! I'll fix the issue at 0:24 and put the author's name in all three poems
