As part of this blog, I am now hoping to produce POD: Psalms On Demand, for people to download and listen to, at a time convenient for them... They will also be given to a friend of mine who is going overseas on mission to a country where Christianity is severely restricted due to government legislation... Knowing my church, they may even be given to the housebound members on CD...  Now I could do it myself, but that would get very boring very quickly for anybody listening!  Just ask my wife how tedious it is to listen to me reading aloud for more than 10 minutes!! LOL So, I am endeavouring to recruit other people into this project as well...

Why am I doing it?  Good question and glad you asked!!

  • Most of the Psalm MP3 series, I hear are of one persons voice only! I would like to change that.
  • I have people across the globe contributing, including my own local church. So hopefully not only building bridges between continents, but also between the virtual and the local churches, because it will also involve some people I know, who have very little interest in, or knowledge of, virtual church and the internet in general...
  • To reflect the universality of the Psalms across nations, age and gender.

A sample of the sort of thing I am doing, is attached to this post...

What do you need?

You need a computer with a sound-card and a microphone... If you dont have voice recording software already, there are numerous programmes available to download free of charge...

Details

  • You can use any standard translation of the Bible, just tell me what version you will use so I can check the audio against the translation...
  • At the beginning, say what number the Psalm is, such as "Psalm One Hundred"...
  • No need to say the verse numbers... No music in the background, because people with hearing problems probably wont be able to hear you speak...
  • The best free programme to use is Audacity, and it is found here
  • Record it and save the file at the highest possible quality in MP3 format...

I am sure you probably have further questions, so put them here and I shall endeavour to do my best to answer them!

Thank you and Blessings
