Excerpts from liner jacket of Jacques Brel CD:
When I was a young singer in Canada, I went to a performance of "Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris". That evening, I fell in love with the songs of Jacques Brel.

When Brel sang, he gave everything he had to each song; each one had a different person singing it. I don't believe he ever sacrificed interpretation for vocal sound.

I perform his songs in English, as I first heard them, with the poignant translations by Eric Blau and Mort Shuman, allowing us easier insight to Brel's thoughts.

If you Go Away:
Certainly Brel's best known song that has been translated into English. I have two video clips of Brel
singing this song, and in both he cries!

Music of the Night (from Donald's previous, self-titled CD):
If I lost my voice tomorrow I would be happy in the knowledge that I have performed the role of a lifetime. I wanted the recording of this song to somehow capture how I feel while performing it on stage; not an easy task!
