Special Holiday CD - Jane Olivor's Songs of Season with 2 Schwartz songs

Jane Oliver cover

Stephen wrote the music for two songs on this CD: "The Spirit of Christmas" and "The Chanukah Song - We Are Lights"

A reviewer on Amazon.com said it's "...not like the run of the mill holiday CDs. This one is special. She not only sings some of our favoite holiday songs, but some we are not familiar with. She creaps into your soul. Each song sounds like she is singing it to you and with all the feeling and warmth that her beautiful voice is known for."

My comments I finally acquired Jane Olivor's SONGS OF THE SEASON. I played it while doing housework. When track 3 "We Are Lights" Schwartz/Young song came up I had to stop everything and just sit and listen. I got addicted and started playing it a lot. One time after I had hit the back button about 4 times my husband said, "I think you like that song." He said, "It's a nice song. I like the melodic turns." I find it mesmerizing and very expressively appropriate to the lyrics about people gathered to share both candle light and the light of their hearts.

I really recommend the album to anyone. This is not your basic ordinary holiday fare but very special throughout.

Songs of the Seasons includes "We Are Lights"

Stephen Schwartz's comment: "I thought that Jane Olivor's Safe Return CD captures how she really sounds better than any of her other CDs."

Jane Olivor: Safe Return CD - Amazon.com [new browser window] (P.S. Classics, 2004)

Jane Olivor - Safe Return - Concert on DVD [new browser window]

Recorded live during a concert in Boston in November, 2003, the CD and DVD include Schwartz's poignant song about letting go of love: "Hardest Part of Love" from Children of Eden and the bouyant and funny piece "Crowded Island" from his album Reluctant Pilgrim. Ms. Olivor also offers the first recording of "Sippin Wine" with music by Stephen Schwartz and lyrics by Gloria Nissenson.

From distributor Image Entertainment: With her spectacular voice and deeply emotional presence, Jane Olivor is a musical sensation. A deeply loved vocalist of the finest order, she can turn a ballad into a transforming experience and always leaves her audience wanting more. Now she returns to thrill new audiences with this brand new performance, featuring beloved standards and new melodies sure to touch your heart and lift your soul.

ABOUT SIPPIN' WINE: An an e-mail message, the lyricist answered my "what is it about" question: "I guess you could say the song is about a couple who have "made it" in the sense that here they are, comfortably "sippin' wine from crystal goblets", serving caviar, enjoying the so-called "good things". As they look back together they remember when "bread was dinner" and they "drank from jelly jars". And the wine tasted a little better back then. They know that it was their love for each other that really saw them through everything and got them to where they are today.

The chorus goes

Sippin' wine from crystal goblets isn't bad
But I miss the time when love was all we had."
