A Private Showing

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

In late 1978, Cynthia went to Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee and recorded “A Private Showing” (often referred to as “The Brown Album”) before an invited live audience. Produced by the legendary Buryl Red with his signature producer's touch, only 500 copies of the original album were ever pressed! Cynthia, her husband, prolific lyricist and playwright Ragan Courtney, sister Patti Clawson Berry and poet Paul Pate wrote the words to the songs. Cynthia composed the music. The result was an honest and introspective collection of twelve songs about losing and loving—and experiencing the divine wonder of life. In classic “Cynthia” style, she pushed the boundaries of traditional gospel music with creative songs that were poetic, melodic and spiritual. For years, fans have asked that Cynthia reissue the album, since most had not actually heard it, but had heard about it. Until now, this rare album has never been reproduced and has remained a lost classic since the album was pressed in 1980!

The Way I Feel

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

It was an earlier time when the whole world was full of new beginnings and the possibilities of making records was a dream coming true for Cynthia Clawson. Buryl Red was her brilliant producer who spoke in pauses long enough to drive a truck through, but during those pauses he was formulating musical delights for her to express. This album is still so relevant that it amazes the listener at its freshness. Cynthia Clawson and her husband wrote the powerful opening song, The Journey, as a genuine plea for divine assistance as they started their lives together as fellow artists on the road to who knew where.

It was a time of travel and advancing a budding career and each song had an impact on where Cynthia was physically and spiritually. She had already established that she was a unique interpreter of hymns of her faith and it was evident in the new setting by Raymond Brown for William Cowper’s words, Sometimes a Light Surprises. Her beloved friend, Raymond, gave her another song that expressed the way she felt with his new setting of Softly and Tenderly. It sealed their relationship as writer and singer. He went on to accompany her for a decade before he died prematurely. On this collection, he collaborated with Ragan Courtney to write one of Cynthia’s most requested songs, I Heard About a Man. Adding to the theatrical feel of this recording were the songs by the talented writer, George Gagliardi. He wrote the happy song, A Brand New Song, and the provocative piece, His Music, that keeps returning between the selections to tie the collection together.

In thirty years this has been Cynthia’s most requested album. The way Cynthia feels is obviously hopeful and faithful. This recording is a source of encouragement. Today it still stands out as a creative and fresh way to use music to proclaim one’s faith.

Always

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

"Always" is a recording that Cynthia has wanted to make for a long time. After years of singing these great love songs taught to her by her parents, Cynthia took a giant step and got Will Courtney, who grew up listening to her voice, to produce her dream in the recording studio singing the music of another generation. The music is classic. So is she. With the brilliant, crisp jazz influence of Marvin Gaspard and his jazz trio, she captured the joy and beauty that is the essence of these songs. From the popular song "Always" sung at her parents wedding, to the dramatic cover of Nancy Wilson's "Guess Who I Saw Today," to the happy coincidence of the pairing of "If I Only Had a Brain" with Willie Nelson's "Crazy," Cynthia Clawson continues to delight and surprise her listeners using her remarkable gift to sing of love.

Hymnsinger

In cart Not available Out of stock

For some time now, Cynthia has called this her favorite album. In collaboration with her friend, pianist and arranger, David Maddux, some of her best song styling can be heard here. The hymn texts take on new meanings and greater dimensions as this duo soars over new harmonies and daring contrasts. Also included are three original pieces by Clawson, Maddux and Paul McCusker.

This very original work proves that nothing can speak to the heart better than an old hymn from a seasoned performer who lives for the reason behind the message. Critically acclaimed, this is a must for any Cynthia Clawson listener, for any musician, for any soul.

Prayer And Plainsong

In cart Not available Out of stock

Prayer and Plainsong has the feeling of private meditation. It draws the listener into a quiet space where the mystery unfolds. This unique recording was conceived during a visit to the historic Mission San Jose. Cynthia Clawson was so moved by the quiet sanctity of the old church that she began to softly sing as a personal act of worship. The hallowed walls reverberated with centuries of prayer and worship and the sound was the sound of an ancient praise embellished by a sweet holiness.

Noting the beautiful acoustical quality of the 300-year-old sanctuary,she brought her friend, accompanist and arranger, Bruce Greer, to hear the quality of the sound of the room. They determined to capture as nearly as possible the experience Cynthia had when she sang a prayer in the mission.

Every song was to be thought of as prayer; and the songs were songs that Cynthia was familiar with after a lifetime of singing the hymns with which she was raised. Songs like: Pass Me Not, O Worship the King, Take My Life, Holy, Holy, Holy and Have Thine Own Way. She then chose more recent writings to fill out this recording of prayers with other songs like: Eternal Life/Prayer of St. Francis, O Bountiful Provider, I Love You, Lord and Hear Our Prayer, O Lord.

With a musical gesture to the historical meaning of this old mission where Spanish missionaries attempted to tell indigenous people about God's love expressed in Christ, Bruce Greer wove the language and the musical style of these Catholic missionaries into these decidedly Protestant hymns. The results are stunning. Not only are the artists impeccable in their delivery, but they have provided for the listener an opportunity to hear the gentle assurance of God's abiding grace.

See Me, God

In cart Not available Out of stock

When people speak of Cynthia's work, the word intimacy is often used, and this is arguably her most intimate recording to date. For those who have seen a concert with Cynthia and her superb accompanist Bruce Greer and wanted to take home that experience, this is the recording for you. Cynthia is at her most inspiring as she continues to offer comfort. The album is mature and hopeful as it dares to ask questions and seek answers for those on a journey of spiritual growth.

The artistry and melding of talents is stunning. Preview listeners declared that it was like being in Cynthia’s living room as she sang, others said it was more like being in her mind as she was so honest and open in her lyrics, and in her performances. Cynthia has dared to make music, ask questions, and declare faith in a troubled world. This album is a beautiful and brave undertaking for this seasoned artist who, like a rare violin, gets richer with age.

This new release has found the gospel "in disguise" by many writers from Tom Waits to Stephen Sondheim. She has included her trademark hymns interspersed throughout the CD to offer direction to the questions that we face. In Tom Wait’s moving song, Georgia Lee, he ponders where God was when a little girl was murdered. It is followed on the CD by a haunting instrumental of Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child with Cynthia then singing Prayer for Peace – words by St. Francis, music by Buryl Red.

Immortal

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

This recording, released by Cynthia in 1986, was a statement about what she wanted to say in terms of her faith and her longing to be involved in things eternal. There was a feeling of theological movement in her denomination and sides were being taken. One morning at a chapel service at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where her husband was on faculty, she stood to sing with all the passion in her soul, My Faith Has Found a Resting Place. It was to be the first song in this recording. Everything else pointed to God in whom she had utmost trust. Then, with a delightful burst of energy, we hear the woodwinds fairly laughing out the joy from the arrangement of the hymn, Immortal, Invisible. She was asked that year to sing the title song for a movie that was being produced from a Horten Foote play entitled, A Trip to Bountiful. It starred the brilliant actress Geraldine Page who won an Academy Award for her performance. Her singing of W. L. Thompson’s beloved hymn, Softly and Tenderly, turned out to be the quintessential performance of the song, and there have been very few concerts since that day she has not sung that haunting music.

Each song in this repertoire is carefully chosen to make the listener more and more comforted by the immortal truths found in Cynthia’s collection recorded on this CD.

Forever

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

Forever is timeless and it is nearly new. When released in 1983, it was filled with great music, but difficult to categorize. It has a sound that is distinctly influenced by the jazz idiom, songs with sweeping orchestral arrangements, arrangements with pounding rhythms, and gentle, prayerful songs. It showcases the unique stylings of Cynthia Clawson who has not followed the advice of the gospel music pundits. They insisted she be more one-dimentional in order to make it easier to categorize her music and market it to a specific group. She was not encouraged to be multi-dimentional - but she is.

In the brief time that Forever was on the shelves in the stores, Come Celebrate Jesus went to number one on the Christian charts. This album is classic Cynthia. Listen to it and pass it on.

Finest Hour

In cart Not available Out of stock

This recording includes some of Cynthia's most beloved songs. The title cut, My Finest Hour, was written by George Gagliardi as was Stand By Me. Both songs, completely different in style, contain beautiful, passionate lyrics like all the previous music that Gagliardi has written for her. Akin to other Clawson albums, there are various styles and musical treatments which will keep the listener's attention all the way through - one listening after another. Finest Hour, the last of the Nashville recordings, will delight those who are fans of Jerry Crutchfield's production. (Crutchfield also produced Lee Greenwood, Dave Loggins, Tanya Tucker and many other such artists.)

As always, the lyric content is most important and that by Donnie McGuire and Reba Rambo will remind the long-time gospel music family of the rich heritage of the southern church community. This offering is recommended for hours of enjoyment by those who are seeking the inspiration of classic Cynthia Clawson.

You're Welcome Here

In cart Not available Out of stock

Lovers of Bill and Gloria Gaither's Homecoming productions, here is the sound of a faith that sprouted in Texas and blossomed into full flower, nurtured by the sounds of Willie Nelson, Bob Wills, Cindy Walker and the music of the old Broadman hymnal. With all the country influence, there was the counter alance of the musical mastery of Cynthia's mother who studied music and was a fine church pianist all of her life loving classical music and popular songs from the 30's and 40's. Teachers like Sarah Baker, her voice teacher in college, and excellent singers like Bob Hale and Dean Wilder encouraged her to use her musical gift for the Opera; but she could never limit herself to one style.

While living in Nashville, she met Jim Ed Norman who produced Anne Murray's recordings. He encouraged Cynthia to express that early influence in her musical background on this recording. This CD of gospel songs is deliciously flavored with the seasonings that come directly to her heart from the Scotch-Irish, Welsh ancestors who came to this country singing about their faith as they settled the mountains in the eastern parts of North America.

Nashville song writers, the wonderful Charlie McCoy on harmonica and the brilliant Ricky Skaggs mandolin picking seem to caress the songs Cynthia sings with the softness of the sound of the wind in hickory trees, the joy of rain on a tin roof and the gentle shadow of mountain fog.

Angel Be

In cart Not available Out of stock

Together, the voices of Cynthia and Craig Hella Johnson cause the angels to open their wings in delight! This CD is a compilation of recordings selected from the past decade of their collaboration and performance. Much of the music is taken from the annual concert, Christmas at the Carillon, performed under the direction of Craig and featuring Cynthia along with Conspirare, an ensemble of professional singers from around the country. Although not Christmas songs, this exquisite music is deeply spiritual.

These songs were recorded in the Carillon – a former convent in Austin, Texas where the Sisters of Perpetual Adoration lived, worshiped and prayed. The marble sanctuary has become a magnificent concert hall in which Cynthia, Craig and Conspirare sing.

The two-volume set contains favorite live recordings and four previously unreleased tracks.

Broken: Healing The Heart

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

Arranged and accompanied by Bruce Greer, with everything from the string quartet to the accordion, Cynthia sings for those who hunger for comfort. She says of this album, "There are many ties that bind us together. The greatest of these is God's love, and the second is the commonality of the human experience that includes all frailties ... our brokenness. The miracle of Love can turn those broken places into a heart of compassion for others and forgiveness for ourselves. The wailing of broken hearts is the doorway to God."

Episodes

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

The songs on this album are near to Cynthia's heart because they have been part of her journey as a singer. Many of these songs have been performed in concerts from the very beginning and have never been recorded. She speaks of homesickness, doubt and faith. She is, as always, honest in content and delivery as she allows her faith to shine through the music.

In Cynthia’s words, from the liner notes:

“It was Mama’s piano. Old. Spinet. Hardly ever completely in tune, yet the most heavenly thing in our house...except for Mama. We played it all the time. And many Sunday nights after church services people would gather in the parsonage around the piano and sing and sing.

The piano had never been reworked or adjusted in any way when I was growing up, except for an occasional tuning. The felts to this day are the original ones. They are so packed down with all of that energetic playing that they are as hard as the hammers on which they are attached. Mama’s piano now has a distinct honky-tonk register even though it was gospel songs that beat the felts flat making a thudding sound like a Dr. Pepper bottle being set down too hard on a picnic table in Comfort, Texas.

When we came to record this series of songs, we thought about renting a good piano because the one in the studio was old, and worn and sounded more like temple blocks than a piano; but as I sat down and ran my fingers over the yellowed keys, I was suddenly back in Yoakum in the front room and Mama was standing behind me with her hands on my shoulders. I miss her. I miss the times we had playing, singing and I am glad that we found a piano that can stir up all those precious memories.

This instrument—way past its prime, served me in a profoundly simple way as I sang out all these episodes that came right out of my life”.

Carols & Chant

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

Cynthia Clawson has recorded a Christmas project that has, at its core, the joy associated with Christmas and a strong emphasis on the mystery of the birth of Jesus. Her friend, accompanist, and musical arranger, Bruce Greer, presented this music to her last year as a Christmas gift, all neatly bound and ready to record. The project was recorded in Dallas at Verge Music Works Studio with sound engineer Martin Baird. He told Cynthia and Bruce about new computer software that was able to recreate, with the most amazing precision, the reverberation in different great rooms around the world. He, through the miracle of new recording techniques, was able to place Cynthia’s voice in one of the great cathedrals of theworld, Notre Dame. Cynthia and Bruce produce the only sounds heard on the recording. What seems like a choir of solemn, pious monks devoted to worshiping through chant, or later the sound of a choir of sweet nuns singing from pure adoration, is none other than the voices of Cynthia Clawson and Bruce Greer, contemporary Christians creating out of sheer delight.

They weave the holiness of Gregorian chant with the tender familiarity of Christmas carols into a warm blanket for the Child about whom they sing. This offering of music and adoration lifts the listener’s spirit and reminds them of winding streets in an ancient town in Palestine, hillsides where flocks of sheep huddled against the cold night wind, and skies shimmering with dazzling colors, angels' songs, joy, and the sweet mystery of the advent of the Messiah!

Be Still

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

Be Still is Cynthia Clawson's first instrumental album. It was recorded as an album of instrumental prayer and meant as a tool to inspire and to help you, the listener, remain quiet and still and allow God to speak to your heart. Cynthia is known in music primarily as a singer, but those who have seen her in concert and read the credits on her albums knows that she is also a gifted pianist. After years of playing piano to accompany her voice, Cynthia decided to record an instrumental album of some of her favorite songs. It was recorded last year by Will Courtney at Desert Sound Studios in Santa Fe, NM and is available exclusively at CynthiaClawson.com.

I'll Be Home For Christmas

Marvin Gaspard featuring Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

Marvin Gaspard, an artist who plays a mean piano that is a smooth as an Olympic ice skater gliding in seemingly effortless grace, makes this recording a celebration that moves your feelings from nostalgia to laughter to reverence. Somehow, he is able to remind us of the true emotions that accompany us as we once again approach this season of gifts, gratitude and love. No matter where you are when you listen to his music, you feel like you are home...or on your way home.

Carolsinger

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

"I recorded this Christmas album with David Maddux. We loved the experience and what resulted was, for me, possibly my favorite recording. It was released in late November of 1988 and nearly missed the season. The next year it was taken off the market and the season of waiting began for me. Finally, it is available again with The Calla Lily Company and I am so grateful and excited.

Carolsinger is about expectant hope and the realization that there is light after darkness, life after death and amazement and wonder in the Kingdom of God. A baby has been born and he is called Emmanuel - God with us!" Cynthia
