Thanks for your reading Isabella, the volume is very low at 63.2 dB, amplifying will increase any background noise level present. I think you are using a chrome book, I am not familiar with the program you would be using, but I hope this helps a bit...
You should aim for your waveforms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:

You can check your volume using our Checker program - see info at http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker You will find the volume in decibels on the Information tab. For your information, we look for around 89 dB (87-91 is OK) (all the other tech specs are there also) Then again, Checker may not work with the Chrome system :? )

* I cut down the silences to the required length, amplified and applied noise reduction to your file, please tell me what you think.. https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/springtime_moore_icg_128kb.mp3

Welcome to LibriVox Generoushorse, a couple of PL notes...
- there is a 'buzzing' behind the vocal parts on your file, they are not present in your test recording, have you changed your recording setup?
- there is a repeat at 2:01 "All...All bright with flowers..."

I currently have no website. I've used C. Roxanne Maxwell as my pseudonym for years, I see no reason to change it.

I'm recoding in the same place I did before... not sure what's different. I'll listen again for the buzz. Do you need me to delete the double "all?"

Thank you Monica, welcome to Librivox :D your file has a couple of technical issues...
- the bitrate should be 128 kbps (constant), yours is ~98 kbps (variable) this is set when you export/save the file as an .mp3

there are a couple of stumbles at 1:30 and 1:38 you may wish to correct...
And the glad thrush sing softly from the tree,
Filling the clear air with his loveful lays;

We aim for word perfect in the poetries if we can, so if you can edit, it would be great. :D
