I mentioned in a previous post that I had started to record my own version of 1 Peter. I have been playing with how best to do this, and have had some learning to do on the way. Anyway, I spoke to Benjamin and suggested that it may not be a terrible idea if some of us amateurs band together to try to get the rest of the NT recorded in the restored pronunciation. He is not opposed to the idea and it would serve as a stop-gap until something perhaps more professionally done comes along, and is a great project anyway for those with the time.
This is a link to a file on my Dropbox that is recorded from the SBLGNT of 1 Peter. I re-recorded it today after no sleep last night, but thought I would get the ball rolling and update this some other time.
hopefully it only gives you read/write access, and only to that file, but please let me know if it gives you more. I will need to rethink if that happens!
The previous recording had no real intonation but a fast pace. I sacrificed the pace here to try to get some intonation and now sound stilted so definitely not perfect (lack of sleep can’t have helped). Doing this does force a careful thinking of how to highlight the text to guide hanged in intonation and emphasis which is a curious side effect.
Thoughts of people on whether they think getting stuck into something like this would be appreciated. Certainly makes you appreciate the stuff that Buth and Benjamin have put out there so much more when you give it a bash yourself!
