Allison Crowe Band Tidings

12 songs
On winter's eve in Canada, Allison Crowe took her seat at the piano and made this music. Tidings unites traditional carols and not-so-traditional songs, all warmly and passionately interpreted through artistry of Allison (and, on three tracks, her trio) in a live, studio, setting. The sounds of this session have been captured faithfully by Engineer & Producer Larry Anschell (Pearl Jam, Sarah McLachlan, k-os) Peace on Earth ~ goodwill toward all. Tidings!

NB This is the full-length, 12 song version of Tidings (which was previously released as a six-song EP).

A Magical Christmas

label:North Star Records

 

Well-known traditional Christmas carols are delicately and intricately plyed on psaltry, hammer dulcimer, 6 & 12 string guitars, cello, flute and recorder. There is a strong "Olde English" Elizabethan feel to this album.

Irish Rovers
An Irish Christmas

Release Date: 15 October, 2002
Varese Records

SEALED CD 

This has quickly become one of my family's favorite Christmas albums because it is lively, upbeat, and melodious. The Rovers have a great beat and rollicking voices and they do a terrific job with both the fun songs and the traditional carols. I particularly like Bells Over Belfast for its hopeful message in the current depressing situation with the Peace Agreement but it is also nice to hear upbeat renditions of God Rest Ye Merry, Away In A Manger, We Three Kings, and Silent Night along with less-often-heard All Through The Night, The Christmas Traveller, and What Child Is This. And last, but not least, is Miss Fogarty's Christmas Cake, which is a cute addition to the Christmas repertoire. All in all, this CD will leave you feeling good and full of Christmas spirit.

Firedance: Songs for Winter Solstice

Celebrate the yearly return of the light with songs full of Celtic soul, poignancy and fire.

This collection of songs celebrating Yule is a fresh alternative to the usual seasonal fare. The album consists of five original songs and five rare traditional tunes. All original pieces and musical arrangements are written by band members.

Songs range from warmly good-natured party tunes, such as To Drive the Cold Winter Away, and the quirky 15th century English tavern ditty, Bring Us in Good Ale, to tender ballads such as Gaia’s Lullaby, with its yearning for communion with the earth.

The album’s title track, Firedance, is a slowly-building dervish, with modal, arabic flavours. Swirling accordion riffs and hypnotic vocals invite us to "Cast the old year into the flame." The instrumental jig, The Turning Tide, poignantly conveys the transition from old year to new.

A highlight of the album, Yule is Come, literally turns historical precedent on its ear. In this exuberant piece, a haunting fragment of medieval plainsong chant, "Gaudete, Christus est Natus" (Christ is born) is abducted and transformed into a timeless call to celebrate Yule.

Celtic Harp for Christmas

This album remains a top seller for its distribution companies Canada-wide. Regularly heard in December on CBC Radio, the CD features harp, flutes, cello and bells playing a hauntingly beautiful collection of well-known and medieval carols.

Inspired by the peace and joy of the Christmas season, the tinsel and stark commercialism are stripped away and what is left is a celebration of birth — a celebration of light. Throughout time immemorial, people of numerous cultures and backgrounds have gathered together in the darkest time of year to stave off the darkness and welcome the light. When thinking of Christmas, I often recall our North American tradition with its snow-covered fields and forests and the sounds of church bells ringing out over the frozen land. Above the twilight-blue snow, high in the evening sky, stars glisten like ice. Inside candlelit churches, choirs rejoice. May this music reflect the reverence, peace and mystery of this season.
