Description

This describes speech done on whole releases or just tracks that is done by a narrator. A narrator tells stories but normally does not speak spoken parts. Typically this the case for fairytales and other children's stories. Note that this is different from audiobooks, which are read by a reader. For those use ReaderRelationshipType.

This AdvancedRelationshipType is part of the PerformanceRelationshipClass. It is a special case of SpeakerRelationshipType.

Relationship Attributes

"additional" and "guest"

There is no guideline yet how the additional and the guest flag might be used for "narrated" relationships. (AdditionalRelationshipAttribute and GuestRelationshipAttribute)

Examples

Dudley Moore narrated Wish Upon a Star: All-Time Children's Favorites

Sting narrated Peter and the Wolf

Proposed Definition

This is how it would be implemented for artist--track:

    * forward: {additional:additionally} {guest} narrated
    * reverse: was {additional:additionally} {guest} narrated by
    * description: Indicates an artist narrating something on this work.
    * attributes: additional=0-1 guest=0-1

And for album--artist:

 narrator (0)

    * forward: was {additional:additionally} {guest} narrated by
    * reverse: {additional:additionally} {guest} narrated
    * description: Indicates an artist narrating something on this work.
