I finally got a chance to download it. I think you do well-- possibly better than I would, since if I try to speak Verdurian (or any foreign language) quickly, I start to get sloppy with the phonetics.
Watch out for the stress-- e.g. it's pére úrek, not peré urék; also grazhénom and Míhel.
Your z's (as in kuzulo) sound like zh's sometimes. And it sounds like the final sound in suleom gets lost. The final vowel in ke sounds a bit odd, like a schwa; it should be an open e.
I can tell that you're distinguishing c and k, but it's hard to tell exactly how you're pronouncing k. :)
I hope that's not discouraging! It was fun to listen to, and I thought you might like feedback.
