by plastering reverb in and using LilyPond for creating the backing

need to figure out how to do a proper count-in, and I think I can do the
talk with that piece.  The take itself is short, so I should have plenty
of time messing up.  And I need to work on my voice the next few weeks.

So basically that is a "production with Ardour under Linux might be worth bothering with" pitch.

That’s excellent, David!

There are a couple of ways to do the count-in... I’ve made MIDI files in LilyPond that have a wood-block percussion on every beat, starting a couple of bars before everything else. You can open a multi-track MIDI in Ardour, I believe. It makes a good guide for multi-track vocals, too, to keep everything in tune. You can also make a click track in Ardour itself, which may turn out to be easier, though it can be harder to line up the MIDI with it, depending on how it all works out.

Emperor Norton had the right idea.
