Come Bright December (feat. Emilyn Stam)

by Rosemary Phelan

"There is something in Rosemary Phelan's voice and songs that moves me to tears each time I hear her... Her voice and words go straight to my heart, and my response to her work is involuntary - I simply surrender." Canadian Folk icon Ian Tamblyn

Album Notes
"... let her gorgeous voice wash over you..." Sing Out! magazine
"... the performances cut to the bone..." Bill Garrett, Borealis Records
"... full of heart and soul." Mark Michaelis, Acoustic Harmony
"... a lovely voice... more powerful for being devoid of affectation." The Guelph Mercury

"Come Bright December" is the new album of songs for Christmas 2011, featuring Rosemary's vocals, harp, shruti box, tinwhistle and percussion, and the inspired piano of Emilyn Stam (student of and accompanist to the late Oliver Schroer). Many of the tracks are live, improvisational piano/vocal duets. Other featured artists include Bryden Baird (Feist, Jim Cuddy Band) on flugelhorn + trumpet; Jason LaPrade on dobro; and Canadian Folk Music Award winners Tannis Slimmon and Allison Lupton adding vocal harmonies. This serene yet dynamic album offers a refreshing array of rarely-heard carols, lullabies, and even a Gregorian chant! This could be your answer to holiday stress and too many rounds of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!
