Journey

Lyrics

Bar-journey-coverJourney (2014) is available now! Working from Colorado, Bar sent demos of her new songs via email to Peter Tomlinson in upstate New York. He’d listen and send his musical response back in the form of guitar tracks or accordion until slowly, the songs came to life. It took a while, but the record includes eleven new tunes and reflects the fun the two of them had over the last four years.

Confession 1995

A collection of 10 original songs and two covers, “confession” was recorded primarily on acoustic instruments. Bar plays piano and guitar and is supported by instruments ranging from french horn to viola to accordion. Dirty Linen magazine said this about confession: “Bar Scott has a deep, mellifluous voice…Without resorting to pretense, Scott weaves lush and creative musical textures into her work. Confession is a lovely piece of work…”

Liturgy

Purchase hard copy from my store

Liturgy 2003Liturgy was recorded as a gift for my mother-in-law, Shirley Hyatt Schoenberger who is a member of the New Church – a church inspired by the life and work of 18th century mystic, Emmanuel Swedenborg.

This CD is a collection of the hymns from that church’s so-called “Old Liturgy” which was published in 1966. These hymns are beautiful and include words and music written by Haydn, Mendelssohn, Bach and Beethoven as well as composers who grew up or lived with the richness of this religion. I have loved learning these songs and have been very moved by the whole experience of learning them and recording them. The hymns are recorded in four parts – soprano (me), alto (Kirsti Gholson), tenor (Matt Ulrich) and bass (Jim Ulrich). We are accompanied by Joshua Pearl on the piano. It is a very simple recording and very true to the original arrangements of the New Church Liturgy. If you love church hymns, I highly recommend this CD.

Great Songs to Sing Along With

In 1992, my friend Pat Bergeson and I put together a great collection of folk songs that we affectionately called Great Songs to Sing Along With.  Jay Scott and I added a couple more a few years later. The CD includes, “Oh, Susanna,” “The Water Is Wide,  “Home on the Range,” and “America the Beautiful.” It’s a good one.

Great Christmas Songs to Sing Along With

“Rave Tesar is my favorite piano player!” That’s what Bar was thinking when she asked Rave if he would like to do a Christmas recording in July of 1996. Rave has arranged all of the music and has created quite a variety of styles, unique and traditional, for some of our favorite Christmas songs. Included are “The First Nowell”, “Dona Nobis Pacem”, “Silent Night”, and “Joy to the World”, and others. (13 songs total)
