A Canadian Song by Susanna Moodie (1803 - 1885).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/a-canadian-song-by-susanna-moodie/
Susanna Moodie was an English-born Canadian author who wrote about her experiences as a settler in Canada[ which was a British colony at the time. Here she celebrates the waterways of Canada. ( Wikipedia)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
This Week's Poem was suggested by TriciaG. :clap:
This week's poem can be found here.

Set your recording software to:
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz

Have questions on "how"?
Check LV's Recording Notes thread before recording. If this is your first recording, you'll also find this Newbie Guide to Recording useful.
Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
A Canadian Song by Susanna Moodie, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal URL.]
Then read the poem:
Come, launch the light canoe;
The breeze is fresh and strong;
The summer skies are blue,
And 'tis joy to float along;
Away o'er the waters,
The bright-glancing waters,
The many-voiced waters,
As they dance in light and song.

When the great Creator spoke,
On the long unmeasured night
The living day-spring broke,
And the waters own'd His might;
The voice of many waters,
Of glad, rejoicing waters,
Of living, leaping waters,
First hailed the dawn of light.

Where foaming billows glide
To earth's remotest bound;
The rushing ocean tide
Rolls on the solemn sound;
God's voice is in the waters;
The deep, mysterious waters,
The sleepless, dashing waters,
Still breathe its tones around.


At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
Save your recording as an mp3 file using the following filename and ID3 tag format:
File name - all in lowercase: canadiansong_moodie_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
(e.g. canadiansong_moodie_klh_128kb.mp3 )

Welcome to LibriVox atrent11 :D good first reading. :thumbs:

I attempted to fix the bitrate, and I hope it worked! If not I may need to find another way.
