CHRISTMAS”

DIANE TELL ( French Canadian
Chanteuse)
DOROTHY HAMILL (U.S. Olympic
Figure Skater)
ANDRE GAGNON

(renowned Fr.
Cnd. Pianist)
*********************************
(This most enjoyable
program seems an appropriate way to
remember
2008’s Celebrations honoring QUEBEC
CITY’S 400
th Anniversary!)
*********************************************

This special was filmed
entirely in the old sector of
Quebec City

and in Montreal. As in Perry's
other
Seasonal specials he presents
native music and
customs that inform the
viewer of the flavor, joy and
charm of their celebrations.
( A few carols are sung in French)
Perry, on the ramparts of the Citadel
Fortress, opens the

program with
“Do You Hear What I hear”.
Next
we find Debbie Boone in an old
stonehouse, dressed in
17th Century costume as
a "filles du roi" ( ladies sent to New
France

by the King as possible brides for the
colonists) and
singing 'Wonderful, Wonderful
Day' from film 'Seven Brides
For Seven Brothers'.
She and Perry duet the charming
'Married’.

Quebecchanteuse Diane Tell joins her host in
songs of the season and while at a 'boite de
musique' they duet 'C'est si bon/C'est magnifique'. She guides
Perry to a city park where a group of singers in traditional
Habitant dress are singing 'Alouette'. Standing by the park's fountain
Perry sings “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Forever”.
Next comes a lively dance to the music of Quebec composer and
chansonier Gilles Vignault. Later in the program Perry and Diane join
a family for a 'Reveillon', a home gathering following Midnight Mass. The children are
awakened, gifts are opened, lively dancing and a carol-sing take place.

In Montreal, the city which hosted the 1976 Summer Olympics,
we find Perry at the cyclists 'Velodome' where the centre area is now an ice skating
oval. ANDRE GAGNON at the grand piano plays 'Carol Of the Bells'. A famous quartet,
alumni of the Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club ( Henri Richard,
Claude Provost, Jean Belliveau and Dickie Moore) are introduced to Olympic US Figure skater
DOROTHY HAMILL.She skates to Gagnon's composition 'Le Saint Laurent', a personal tribute to the
mighty St.Lawrence River. He then accompanies Perry in his singing of
'White Christmas'.

As he always does in his Christmas Specials, Perry closes
his program with the sincere and inspiring O Holy Night.

BONUS TRACK
features some material recorded for but not included in the original telecast.
Great sound and picture (8/10)
