Hey, sorry, I'd been thinking I had until July 31! I recorded it three times; the first one was terrible, so I didn't upload it. My singing is flawed in the other two, but in different places, so hopefully you can find some bits you like between the two versions.
Tris, welcome to the singalong! Your singing is beautiful, what a wonderful soprano voice you have!
This song is going to be part of Sue Anderson's 13th Anniversary Collection, whose deadline is July 31st. It will take me several evenings to complete the editing on the song, so I've set a deadline earlier than Sue's to allow that time. But mine is a very flexible deadline. Any last-minute contributions that arrive while the editing is still in progress can be slipped in. Once I've sent the finished song to Sue, I won't be able to add any more.
I know what you mean about little stumbles in the singing, and you did exactly what I do myself -- I simply sing it again, then go through and replace the stumbles with pieces of the corrected version. It's just like replacing stumbles in prose readings, except that the cut/paste has to be the same length to keep the whole thing in sync. The sample that I provided for you good folks to sing along with was patched together in exactly that way! I will happily edit pieces from both of your recordings to mix into the final chorus.
(By the way, if you like to sing, LV has an annual Christmas Carol Collection which usually launches in early November. Please consider joining us there this winter!)
