Why does the song I imported from iTunes to edit, sound weak after burning to a CD?

I needed to shorten a song that's on a commercially available CD because it has a rather long instrumental in it.  We're using this in my church as part of the service. 


What I did:  I ripped the CD into iTunes, then I opened a new project in Garage Band as "Loops", drug the song into the track, chopped out the lengthy part, sent it to iTunes, made a "Play List" in iTunes and burned a CD.  The result was a recording that sounds weak and lack luster.  The original CD sounds so awesome that you just have to get out of your seat and participate (it's a Call & Response song), whereas the shorter version that I created sounds dull and the congregation is left feeling kinda' ho-hum.  :-( 


What did I do wrong?  What should I do differently?  I don't mind doing everything all over again, I just don't want to burn through 10 CDs before discovering by trial and error.  Thanx in advanced for everybody's input...
