Song for All Seasons songs Product Information
Song for All Seasons album for sale by Renaissance was released Feb 20, 2001 on the Wounded Bird label. The next to last album by Renaissance as a full-time, ongoing group, A Song for All Seasons was a courageous effort in its time, wearing its classically based progressive rock colors proudly on its sleeve amid the punk and new wave booms that were sweeping across the musical landscape. Vocalist Annie Haslam and pianist John Tout generated some memorably beautiful moments, ably supported by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor/arrangerHarry Rabinowitz. Song for All Seasons CD music contains a single disc with 8 songs. ...See Full Description

||Song for All seasons|
Definately a Keeper. One is not dissapointed as whe you listen you will become part of the music. Why do the good artists dissappear?

||Orchestral Rock - A Lost Art|
It's too bad Renaissance isn't still together to make records as grand as A Song For All Seasons. Opening Out, the first track is filled with trademark Renaissance flair. Annie Haslam's forlorn vocals really set the tone for the rest of the CD. Day of the Dreamer, the second track, starts out with a bouncy rhythm but soon changes to a moody, distant calling. It's a nine-minute song that ends with Annie's forlorn echoes of lost love - very moving. From there, the record wallows a little - you really have to overlook the non-Annie tracks and count them only as filler. Northern Lights, the second to last track is probably Renaissance at their sunniest but the title track just rocks. I get totally emersed in its seemingly endless peaks and valleys. I think that A Song For All Seasons was a turning point by the band to establish a more commercial sound and for that the CD suffers a little but it more than makes up for it in the few tracks I've mentioned here. If you like your rock with an orchestral flair, this is one you'll really love.

I bought the CD to replace the noisy vinyl pressing on Sire Records (pressed by Capitol, which rarely did good work). Annie's four songs (tracks 1, 3, 5, 7) are worth the price of the entire CD, especially "Northern Lights". Sound quality is excellent, slightly better than the vinyl.

||They still had it...|
...when this was made. There are pieces that are simply as lovely as anything they ever did, leaving you wanting more. Melodies abound, haunting ones too.

||could have been their best|
this lp followed ''novella''and really could have been great if jon camp's 2 songs were not included.opening out is an excellent song.day of the dreamer was always one of my favorite ''renaissance'' songs.closer than yesterday and back home once again are solid pop songs as well as northern lights,the latter becoming a top 10 single in the uk.she is love is a total dud and should not have been included on the cd.the title track is a classic renaissance song with annie haslem singing lead vocals as only she can do.all in all its a great cd to get!
