COVENTRY CAROL (with Blackbird)
In the summer of 2013 we were recording 12 pilot vocals for the White Christmas album which was released later that year. As the day was hot and airless and the vocal tracks would all be re recorded for real at a later date, we weren’t worried about sounds from outside, so we opened all the windows. A little Blackbird was sitting in a tree just next to where we were working and the mic picks up his beautiful song during this take of Coventry Carol. If you listen very carefull you’ll hear him in the second verse!
This video, which is one of my favourites, was once again produced in USA by Gary Quinn who has created so many others for my songs.
Watch and enjoy the magical story of that first Christmas of so long ago.
