Mom and Dad Christmas Memories

by Gerard LeBlanc

Music has always played an important role in my life Growing up in Wedgeport, Nova Scotia, Mom and Dad owned a dance hall, where every Wednesday and Saturday night my sister , brothers and myself had the pleasure of listening to local bands playing for dances in this hall. If there were no bands available records would fill the void.When Dad had a chance to relax he liked to put on some of these old 78`s and listen to “his” music. One particular time of year that is forever etched in my memory is Christmas. Mom and Dad enjoyed listening to Christmas songs by the likes of Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Perry Como and others. I can still see the smile on Dad`s face and hear him say “ecoute ca, ecoute ca”! Midnight mass was a special time… of course we were not allowed to go until we were “old enough” or until the time came that we didn`t bebieve in certain things! That beautiful Christmas music has stayed with me. Recently I recalled a song that was sung regularly at midnight mass by a r

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
These are songs that mom and dad use to listen to at home, " the Christmas season". The hynms on this CD are numbers that were sung for Christmas season also. We use to listen to them at midnight mass. One in particular,(Not too many recordings of this song?) "The Birthday of a King" begins with an old 1965 reel to reel recording of a resident of my village singing it at midnight mass. We had quite a job cleaning it enough to put on a recording. It turned out pretty fair. Mom and dad also loved to listen to Bing Crosby, Nat king Cole, Perry Como, Dean Martin, and more. I have very fond memories of my childhood Chrismases with mom and dad. A lot of heart was put in this recording. I hope you enjoy these songs

My first CD
Sales are really good, even got invited to sing in a concert with Chant ensemble. What voices these ladies have. It was a pleasure to be backed up by these ladies. Thank you
