O Holy Night – Allison Crowe’s “Tidings Concert” (song 15)

One of the first Christmas carols loved and performed by Allison Crowe. She recalls learning “O Holy Night” (and “Silent Night“) from a songbook belonging to grandparents’ or parents’, and, being a shy little girl, playing and singing this quietly in the basement of the family home :) Today, Allison notes, she performs it more loudly, and, here ‘t’is, in “Tidings Concert“.

Arthur / Up to the Mountain – Double-A-Side from Allison Crowe

Allison Crowe releases a double-A-side single – two new song recordings available world-wide for enjoyment in audio and video formats.

In the terrestrial sphere, “Arthur” has its world premiere on CBC Radio’s “On the Go” program. Show Host Ted Blades promises to carry things “Up to the Mountain” tomorrow.

Blogger “Muruch” is helping Allison Crowe celebrate the music release, and 10th anniversary of Rubenesque Records Ltd. – with the online premiere of Allison’s two newest song recordings. And, as a treat for the next couple of weeks, the music is a gift from Muruch

Over at “1 Heck of a Guy” the two song videos make their debut along with this explanation: “Allison Crowe has often been featured on this site, in part for her gorgeous voice and in part for her exquisite songwriting.”

Both of those elements, DrHeck, says, are on display in this new release:

Arthur” – Playing her vintage upright-grand piano, at home in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada, Allison Crowe sings of love weighed through life and time.

Up to the Mountain (MLK Song)” – Already a lover of American singer-songwriter Patty Griffin, Allison Crowe’s introduction to this Griffin tune came from Canadian rock and soul musician Bob Benvenuti when the two Canucks performed at a Christmas “Tidings” concert together. Crowe brings it on home with guitar and vocals – performing as her own Jordanaires for back-up.

Rubenesque Records Ltd., Canada’s most independently successful music label, celebrates its 10th anniversary with this characteristically passionate performance pairing.
