Here's Credo's wonderful musical depiction of Ode To a Nightingale:

http://storeandserve.com/download/143132/11_-Credo_Buffa_-_Ode_To_A_Nightingale.wma.html

Click the link then go to the grey box on the right-hand side marked 'Download'.

Next scroll down until you see 'Download Now' in orange - click the link below that.

This link should remian there as long as is needed :)

Hmm. . .there is no grey box marked download. There are big orange letters that say "download file" but they are not linked to anything nor is the file name, itself. I can't for the life of me figure out what to do here. :?

No--I can't see that. I wonder if it is because I have a Mac and don't have the correct software to open the file. The files you put on the other website all opened themselves with quicktime.

I'm not familiar with macs so maybe they work totally differently for downloading.
:?
I could e-mail you the track just to make sure you finally hear it :D

That would be totally cool. But it needs to be an MP3 or Quicktime file--I can't open Windows Media Player files. Thanks for the help, Saturn! :)

Malia, and other macolytes: with this http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv_download.htm plugin, Safari, QT, and other browsers on the mac (e.g. Firefox) can play wmv files. Alternatively, to convert audio from almost any formt to any other, here's a nice free app called Switch: http://www.nch.com.au/switch/. Good luck :)

I've converted Credo's piece to MP3 and added it to the Putfile site

http://www.putfile.com/saturn1

Enjoy.

And if anyone wants to record any more little readings, send them to me by e-mail [you can e-mail me from my profile page] and I will put them on the site for all to hear.

I might also add some little pieces of my own music and other bits of interest too.

What a fantastic idea! I really enjoyed listening to all those files but sadly I can't seem to play yours Saturn, on the Putfile website. The other files like Malia's readings and Credo's composition played but when I opened up your readings, they refused to start. These compatibility issues are such a pain. Maybe I'll give them another go from a friend's place over the weekend.

I would be thrilled to record some of my own readings too as long as my Australian accent doesn't detract too much from the beautiful imagery Keats writes :D.

Don't be daft - I'd love to hear your readings - none of us here have BBC 'standard' English accents :lol:

I'm not sure why those files didn't work for you :?

Everyone else's seem to work but mine :shock:

It's a conspiracy :evil:

Please do! It would be totally awesome. And, like Sev--oh my gosh, I almost called you "Severn" Saturn! :lol: Eeek, where is my brain this morning??--like SATURN said--none of us are professional readers. (Well, I'm paraphrasing you there, Saturn. :wink: ) We're just real folks who like Keats's poetry--and like to share it. :D

I've sent a small file of my reading of Ode to a Nightingale (stanza vi) to Saturn... but I also sent it to a friend of mine who cracked up with my accent so there you go, I do not exaggerate. :oops:

Did you send a new version to me Fortuna?

If so, it didn't reach me :?

Thanks for posting the mp3, Despondence :) I've been wanting to put one up for awhile, but my software hasn't been working.

And I've been enjoying your colorful array of accents, Saturn :wink: This Putfile thing is pretty slick, being able to play everything right from the site and all. . . but it seems that there's something funky going on with some of the longer ones, like they skip around and/or only play segments.
