about

Brenda's beautifully expressive voice is accompanied by a brand new orchestral accompaniment.

lyrics

by Hugh Martin/Ralph Blane

Christmas future is far away
Christmas past is past
Christmas present is here today
Bringing joy that will last

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on
Our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on
Your troubles will be miles away, away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Until then we'll have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
So hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

***************************
Brenda’s rich and expressive voice is perfect for this iconic song by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane. Brenda’s brand new arrangement was orchestrated by Ross Wooldridge and recorded at Toronto’s Canterbury Music Company.

“Comfortable in any style, Brenda has a knack for the smooth jazz, torch and smokey room sound that plays so well with the smart and sharp set as well as an integral place floating in the ethos, just out of reach.” – Kevin Barber, Barber Shop Podcast, Hamilton

This song has been a holiday favourite for decades. Brenda fell in love with this song when she heard Judy Garland’s version from the 1940s classic film “Meet Me In St. Louis.” The sentiment of the song about wanting to be with those you love over the holidays never grows old and continues to resonate with generations of listeners.
