If you can do a younger female voice with a French Accent, I have a challenge for you. I hope you like challenges! The character is Joan of Arc. The voice work is for my podcast. I am looking for a CC0 contribution. But I will credit you if you like on the podcast.
I am asking for 3 items:
a song (Latin with a French Accent)
a prayer (Latin with a French Accent)
Battle Sounds (this is you making fighting sounds. How cool is that?
Okay, let me see. I've spent some time researching. I am endlessly fascinated by Joan of Arc. Here is more detail on what I am asking for.
I did some research and so learned that a song Joan would have sung going into battle was Veni Creator Spiritus. Here is the catch. Religious songs were sung for hundreds of years just in Latin, and I believe Joan would have done the same. Doing Latin with a bit of a French accent would be incredible, though. Would you consider giving it a try? I am OK if you sang just the first stanza of the song. If you sang the whole thing that would be even better. I imagine Joan singing it with strength but also piety. I found the song online for you. One has pronunciations which should help.
The prayer is probably best done as a quiet but fervent prayer. I had trouble deciding upon one. I ultimately found one to St. Catherine of Alexandria. Here it is in Latin. Would you try it?
DEUS, qui Catharinae Virginis et Martyris tuae sanctae distinguatur a dono sapientiae virtutisque magnus et victor certamine cum hostibus fidei; da nobis, quaesumus, eius intercessione, fidei constantiam et prudentiam justorum, ut totis viribus mente et corde tuo. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
Here is a guide on Latin Pronunciation. You need not be perfect and I don't expect you to study for hours. But if there are some hints here that help you, all the better!
Feel free to wing it. I trust you and I am so grateful for your efforts. I am sure I will love whatever you do.
THE BATTLE SOUNDS
Regarding battle sounds, the battle happens when Joan is fighting in Hell against Beastmen. She will vanquish them by the end of the fight. I am not sure what sounds she would make during battle. I could imagine her saying (in French) "God have mercy on us" or "Here is the sword of heaven" or maybe she would just make some sounds like "Ha!" (swinging a sword) or perhaps a sound of being hit, pushing the offensive, etc. Please improvise, use your imagination, and if you can give me four or five sounds (a few more if you are inspired) then this will work out very well, I think.
An interesting role for an interesting person!
If I use your voice, I will also be pleased to award you with a free book that relates to my Dark Fantasy Podcast. My thanks to you.
PM for any details. Long Live France!
