Bio/Description A Christmas Tree Jessie Lennox 'Being now at home again and alone, the only person in the house awake, my thoughts are drawn back by a fascination I do not care to resist, to my childhood. I begin to consider what do we all remember best upon the branches of the Christmas Tree of our own young Christmas days by which we climbed to real life?' Charles Dickens takes us back to 19th century childhood and remembers the tree in full adornment and the toys awaiting discovery in it's branches. A wondrous tale of nostalgia, sometimes with a touch of fear, on remembrance of a dreadful mask or of a green frog with red spots, jumping at the most unexpected times. But most remembrances are of good festive cheer and delight. Jessie Lennox reads Dickens' A Christmas Tree in an easygoing straightforward way and teams it with a collection of five new Christmas Songs she has written, which have been enhanced with voice echoes and include no music. Originally these songs were recorded with plain voice but the songs have been rearranged to include the voice echoes. • Lone Star - does it proclaim a saviour's birth? • Don't forget to hug and kiss Daddy on Christmas Day, and teddy too. I wish I could be with you. • A young boy sings the traditional Twinkle Twinkle Star (recorded several years ago and brought out of the archives!), linked to Jessie Lennox singing I Saw a Star. • Catch the ferry in San Francisco Bay, in Tokyo Bay, in West Looe Bay. Does it run on Christmas Day? • The Tinfoil Soldier plays his drum, Tum Tum Tum Tum as the fairy sings Allelulia Allelulia. Jessie Lennox has been writing songs for a number of years and has sung them unaccompanied. Now she has included voice echoes to accompany her work. Her CDs include You Are Magnificent (with echoes) and Riverbird (unaccompanied). She also plays keyboard and her latest instrumental albums are Blue River Sound JUNKET (2007) and Cirrus In The Morning. She would be pleased to hear from you by e-mail. One liner: Christmas Tree - A Dickensian treat of Christmas Magic teamed with new Festive Songs.
