    2. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

      Set your recording software to:
      Channels: 1 (Mono)
      Bit Rate: 128 kbps
      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz

    3. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      [• At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
      "[Poem title], by Christina Rosetti, read for LibriVox.org" by [your name] or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.
      • Then read the poem.
      • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
      At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Sing-Song: a nursery rhyme book by Christina Rossetti.
      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.
      [/i]

I want to record this book with my daughter (another Librivox reader fairyland) and didn't know how to propose this. It's not a solo project but not a typical "group" project either... How should I mark this to reflect that in the Title line?

Call it a Solo in the header . It will be catalogued as a group probably so she gets credit if you are registering her , otherwise it can be a solo and you can mention it in the summary
I'll set it up

I notice there are a couple of versions at archive with the illustrations. Maybe we could link the final product to one of them - they are just black and white but nicely drawn ?

I used the link provided on the forum for Ambleside books needing to be recorded, but I agree.... I think this link would be better. What do you think? https://archive.org/details/singsongnurseryr00ros

http://www.bl.uk/collection-items/manuscript-of-sing-song-a-collection-of-nursery-rhymes-by-christina-rossetti has the original handwritten manuscript with corrections - I thought you both may find it interesting too. I hadn't realised this was where
"Boats sail on the rivers,
And ships sail on the seas;
But clouds that sail across the sky
Are prettier far than these. etc" came from. It was one of the first poems we learnt by heart at school.

Oh, yes! My daughter asked me as she recorded them, "Why do people write about that?" Had a nice chat about how things have changed and how removed from death, which is natural, that we are now. Personally, I was thankful she had to record them. She's less *ahem* emotional than me ;)
