ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD is a collection of really good songs, chosen to appeal to all my friends who want to hear me sing but don’t necessarily like classical music. I’m not saying “there’s something for everybody”: I think everything is for everybody! Even the five-year-old son of my recording engineer enjoyed it!

First of all, there’s Brahms, who really captures the feelings of being in love and expresses them so tenderly. He writes beautiful melodies within an extremely satisfying harmonic context. (I've put all the words and translations on my website, annekania.com).

Then there my husband Bruce’s favorite songs, Shenandoah and Scarborough Fair – the latter in the haunting “original” (?) eight-verse setting.

And I complete the programme with songs from the North East of England, where I’m from (proudly!). One of them, Blow the Wind Southerly, I’ve sung unaccompanied, in homage to the wonderful recording made by Kathleen Ferrier, my “hero” from another era.

I think it’s just the right length to be listened to and enjoyed in one session.

You can buy this CD as a digital download, but if I were you I’d go for the physical CD. You get a beautiful, plastic-free sleeve designed by Justin, and the sound quality is much fuller than an MP3 file. You can purchase either with one click of the button.

If you want to try it first, there’s a “bonus” track on my website, or you can listen to samples here.

Speaking of the bonus track, let me introduce my guest artist, Tara. Tara and I have been friends for 10 years, and she always sings along with me whenever I open my mouth. Tuneful as she is, I couldn’t have her singing on the CD itself but allowed her to howl away to her all-time favorite song as a special concession here. This was one of the advantages of recording at home.

My main reason for the home recording, though, was to celebrate the wonderful space we have (which has hosted some great house-concerts) and capture the sound of my beautiful piano. There were heaps of logistical challenges, including 4 dogs, the wind, phones, the house creaking and the room resonance “fluttering” - not to mention having to stand with my back to Lee for the whole recording! - but I’m glad we did it: I like the idea that this recording was “Made in Shepherd, Montana”!
