The First Noel“, one of the traditional carols on Allison Crowe’s “Tidings Concert“, album never fails to get me singing along. More reason to be thankful – to wit, I don’t use a webcam :) Instead, here’s Allison, whose “resonant, rich, gorgeous voice seems as much a manifestation of Christmas as an instrument for singing holiday songs” says the wise man and blogger, Allan Showalter (of “1HeckofaGuy.com” – http://1heckofaguy.com/2011/12/12/its-beginning-to-sound-a-lot-like-allison-crowe )

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“.
