Voice Heralding 101
From SCA.org:“Voice heralds” are used for “crying out announcements, announcing the fighters entering the list field, and acting as the voice of the nobility in court, reading the scrolls that accompany the awards being given out.”
“Book heralds” – helping members of the SCA to research period names and design devices (armory), and registering them with the SCA College of Heralds.
“Protocol heralds” – recording the awards and honors that are given in court, drafting period-style ceremonies for use in court, and determining the precedence of award holders and other legal niceties in all sorts of situations.
In Æthelmearc, a billeted Voice Herald (Baronial Heralds, Jewel Herald) usually acts as the Protocol Herald as well.
This class deals with Voice Heralds. Even if you are an experienced Voice Herald, I ASSURE you, you will learn something and be better at it after taking this class.
