I’ve always loved the carol, Lo How a Rose, and thought to create a rendition. When I searched the lyrics, the first song that came up was The Rose, as sung by Bette Midler. I ended up printing out the lyrics for both songs, and decided to make a medley of the two – hence came A Solstice Rose.

The 2nd piece, A Punkish Resolution Carol, is a take-off on the traditional carol God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, a melody that lends itself quite naturally to rock interpretation. And take-off it does indeed!… with fresh lyrics, a non-physical chorus, and explosive resolution.

I hope you enjoy! May the spirit infused in these songs be nestled amongst the ornaments of your holiday cheer, and fill your seasonal remembrance with hope, joy and inner knowing.

Love always, Doug

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this with me. I had a really busy, busy day and sat down at the end, checking my emails unsuspecting. And then I found this. I just feel soooo good now. So I’m off to bed completely energized, relaxed and filled with love and gratitude.
