Tidings is an album that is half Christmas music and half not Christmas music. It's originally billed as music for the season and all time. And that works for people who get the full disc and create whatever playlists are good for them. In the online realm, though, websites have to tag and characterize with less distinction. So, this collection, because it contains some traditional carols gets labelled Christmas and holiday - when half of its songs are just as obviously all-season songs!

Allison Crowe recorded this Tidings version in a single, first take - which, really, is as raw as recording gets. The Jeff Buckley version on Grace is a composite put together by tech wizard Andy Wallace. Jeff did more than 20 takes and wasn't happy with any single one - so AW did his magic. Leonard Cohen's original has its own story. And so on - just a brilliant song that moves us in so many different ways.

I have to agree with @Ellie Tupper and @cynthia.gav e l that this is NOT a Christmas song. Really puzzled by it's being included on a Christmas album. There are a lot of versions of this song floating around out there... so much respect for Leonard. What an awesome songwriter!

She is and sounds beautiful

Eh, does not have the sort of raw feeling that the Jeff Buckley version has. Leonard and Jeff knew how to do it best. But, I guess if you haven't heard the other versions - it might work for you. She gave it her all though - gotta give her something for that.

Very pretty. Her voice has a lot of vibrato though.

A bit heavy on the falsetto. Otherwise, not to bad. Definitely not Leonard Cohen.

One of the most heartfelt performances of this song. Not as complex/soph i s t i c a t e d / m y s t i c a l as some of the classics. But actually communicated meaning of the song better to me than any other rendition.

I have a sister who I think can sing as good as this. In church, when we sing, sometimes people afterward turn around and say that it is like they are sitting in front of a choir of angels. Everyone can sing, some are not as good as others, that is why everyone is not famous like the people that all of us listen to on Pandora. Thank the Lord that you have a voice to speak with, for there are those, who never even get the chance to speak or cry, but are killed when young. Let our voices stand for

what i would give to have a voice like hers! :0 She has an amazing voice, but her interpretati o n is OK. It's really nice to sing to though. I have an good voice, but NOT as good as hers.

I love her voice, but i agree with ultravioleti r i s . But it's still a great version, my second favorite :P
Report as inappropriate
I don't like this version as much as some of the others... still, the song itself is AMAZING.
Report as inappropriate
Leonard Cohen (the writer of the song), and KD Lang have better versions. The song is fabulpus though! Thanks, Lenny!

I love this song, but I'm not sold on this interpretati o n -- imho, she gets a little too desperate-so u n d i n g too early. I like the tone of her voice, though.

Her voice made me stop and take notice.. she owns the song when she sings it. With this song, one would have to.
