ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This soundtrack was the result of a lovingly crafted project between myself and my mother. It started out as a desire to iimmortalize the lifetime musical music writing talents of my mother. Every year for 15 years my mother Margo would right a new Christmas song and she and I would perform this song on Christmas Eve as part of our families traditional Christmas celebration. I wanted to produce a CD with all of her songs but the idea of telliing the Nativity story using animals and the characters captivated us and we spent 2 years joyfully writing and developiing the now finished product called "Bethlehem the Beginning". We started out using only her songs that fit the story line coupled with any of the traditional Christmas Carols with lyrics that also complimented the story. It turned out that we needed some specifically written songs for some of the characters as the story began to unfold. My mother and I sometimes collaborated on one or two of the new songs but what usually happened was Iwould say " We need a song for Grandp Sheep at the end of the first scene or chapter" and within 24 hours I would get a call from Mom.. "Would you like to hear my new song called Oy Vey"? She would then sing it for me over the phone and from start to finsh it was perfect. To say this was a labor of love is understating the obvious. I have never been so happy doing something this grand in my entire life ....so far. This musical story can be found on itunes as an ipad app or on kindle as an illustrated ebook (without music). You now have the musical half of that ebook to listen to as the songs appear in the story. My mother passed away in 2007 after having experienced her collaboration as a musical production in the theater several times and after hearing the full cast audiobook version we created in 2003. It is my fervent desire that our dream of an animated film version of this story be realized by 2014. She and I would like nothing more than to see this whimsical funny story of the birth of Jesus take center stage on your holiday entertainment schedule.
