|Louise Eldridge - Candlelight CD|
In Candlelight Christmas, Louise exquisitely blends a number of our Christmas favorites into flowing compilations. With her distinct piano styling, she instills in your soul the true meaning of Christmas.
Louise has spent every Christmas season for the last 20 years performing similar renditions in resort hotels, convention centers and corporate Christmas celebrations. In Candlelight Christmas, Louise has included her original composition; A Baby Is Born, Alleluia.
“Having performed for years over the Christmas holidays for many resorts, I have found that the guests wanted to hear quiet Christmas music while they dined”. This Christmas album was created with this inspiration - to enhance your elegant candlelight Christmas dining experience. Louise created these intricate and novel interpretations with the help of friend, and album engineer, John Ellis.
“I would like to dedicate this album to all the family and friends who, because of distance, cannot be together to enjoy the closeness of love and caring at Christmastime. May these traditional carols bring to you the memories which are close to your heart.”
Baby is Born, Alleluia:
The music and lyrics for this beautiful Christmas lullaby were written for one of Louise’s Musicals, The Magical Voices of Christmas, which was performed in Victoria, British Columbia in 1995 and Honolulu, Hawaii in 1996. The musical was co-written by good friend and performing arts teacher, Gini Foley. The photo of Louise on the beach, taken by Gini in 2002, captures the same spot where, in August of 1995, they both sat in their bathing suits and began writing a Christmas musical for Gini’s students. Louise and Ginny performed their musical that Christmas, and in 1996 took students to Hawaii to perform this entertaining and thought-provoking Canadian family musical.
Baby is Born, Alleluia
Angels singing in the sky,
Bringing us their lullaby, in
Loving little whispers, all for Him.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia
Mary, Joseph, held their child while
Wise-men watched and Angels smiled on
Baby Jesus, King of Peace, it’s Him.
In a stable, all forlorn, in
Bethlehem, a Christ was born, while
Angels sang their heavenly song for Him
On that bright and Christmas morn,
Baby Jesus Christ was born.
The Baby Jesus look’d up high and
Saw the moonbeams in the sky.
On that bright and Christmas morn,
Baby Jesus Christ was born, while
Angels sang their lullaby and
Sent their love to Him.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.
