CD: Affirmations Affirmations

Affirmations is a 3-song CD EP of songs performed by Julia Wade and written, produced and orchestrated by Peter Link. All 3 songs were performed by Julia as Soloist at Sunday Services in 2011 at the International Headquarters of the Christian Science Church in Boston. Here are some thoughts about the 3 songs from the songwriter himself, Peter Link:

Each of these three songs is an affirming statement on a given subject. Even Now is a melody that I woke up to one morning that was given to me in my sleep. I staggered out of bed and crawled into my studio where I groggily croaked it into my hand-held digital recorder. No, you would not like to hear this version. The lyrics came to me over the next week as the music coursed constantly through my brain. It affirms hope.

Love Is The Reason For Living is a song that images the tidal waves of problems that we all sometimes face in life. It turns out that Love is the answer to each. The song was written and finished just two weeks before the tsunami his Japan.

We dwell in the arena
Of immense conflicting forces
Our lives are swayed by counsel
From a million diff'rent sources
As we near each troubled crossroad
With a rising tide of fear
And wonder what becomes of us
When the tidal waves appear

Nothing is one of my favorites. Julia brings her usual in-depth dominance of the material in an off-beat and cryptic song that, in the end, sets the material world in its rightful place. Though the lyric is "off-beat" the groove is infectious as the song takes an unmistakably joyful look at life on Planet Earth.

CD: Wonderful Wonderful

This Christmas song was written especially for Julia Wade by Peter Link. It was, in fact, her idea to put these two texts together as one lyric . texts from the book of John in the Bible and from the writings of Mary Baker Eddy. The occasion is the Christmas day church services in Boston where Julia is soloist and performs it with harpist and keyboardist.

In a rather unprecedented move, Julia also decided to share the song with the world before its debut both as a recording and also make it available in digital sheet music for other soloists to sing as well if they so chose. It is an uplifting and joyous celebration of the birth of Jesus and captures the spirit of Christmas both in its music and lyrics.

And his name shall be called. Wonderful!

CD: Wonderful Goin' Home

Here is a joyful, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and always musical exploration of the transition from this world to the next. Though some might speculate that it's about our passing or our eventual transition, we prefer to think of it as a chance to stop our busy lives and take a musical moment to open our eyes to the timelessness of our future. So it's really a celebration of eternal life.

The music is drawn from both original compositions mostly by Peter Link, and also from the rich tradition of beloved Spiritual songs and Gospel lyrics from the past hundred years of the American songbook.

Sometimes these Spiritual songs seem to tell us one thing, but for many of us, practical sense and our own personal consideration might ask us to think deeper.

Led by double gold album R&B/Gospel vocalist, Jenny Burton, its choir performers comprise an 'A' list of world-class back-up singers who have sung with just about every major star in the music business. Joining them are guest artists Julia Wade, Tom Tipton and trumpeter, Barry Danielian.

CD: Ode to Joy Ode to Joy

Every so often Julia is asked to put in a "guest appearance" on a CD. Ode To Joy was simply a joy for Julia. You will find her voice on two of the songs from this very beautiful, mostly instrumental CD from Peter Link. She sings with Peter Link and Margaret Dorn on an original song, "This I Know Is True," penned by Link. And on the title track, Julia sings the words of the great poet Samuel Longfellow. This CD is a feast of sound, heart, beauty and joy.

Peter Link writes of Ode To Joy, "This is not an album of songs, rather, a mostly instrumental series of impressions on the theme of joy. With each movement, I started with a loved melody from my life, stated it and then let the musings take it from there. Sometimes I even dropped the original theme after it had given me a start.

I mixed the musical styles of my life joyfully, not caring who I might offend, but just going with what I heard, drawing from the diverse musical styles of the latter part of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st. My intention in the beginning was to create a purely instrumental album. That's not the way it worked out. Along the way I kept finding things I wanted to say, and so I said them, or sang them, or had my friends sing them.

The experience of making this CD was one of the best of my life. I am ever grateful for the technological tools at my disposal — my computer and its constantly expanding software. I am ever grateful for the flip side, my talent, my connection with the Source of creativity, with the God given light of joy in my life. It is this light, this joy that I sing about, in all its ramifications. It is my Ode To Joy."
