I just realized that I forgot to add the five second silence to my file. Do you want me to upload a fresh copy, or will you add it to the one I already sent you?

Here's my version:

And, partly for fun, partly because it's fitting, I recorded a version en francais as well. Here it is:

Please let me know if you don't receive them.

I hope everyone has a great Canada Day! J'espere que tout le monde a une bonne fete national du Canada!

Andrew had the best idea ever...so I decided I should back him up and do a version in French as well.

So I sang it in French, which is linked here:

And I figured I should read it as well, cause as you already said, it helps with concentrating on the words. So here is the link to the version read in French:

I know this might be overkill considering I already sent in a version in English, but I thought it could be fun. Hope you don't mind too much, considering I felt a need to record it in French. Likely due to my Acadian roots. :)

Hi Annie:

I checked out my information and it is fine, but I noticed a couple of errors in the text and corrected below:

"in French by Sir Adolphe-Basile Routhier"

"In celebration of Canada Day, 2006, LibriVox volunteers bring you ten different recordings of O Canada!."
