Jackie Evancho’s Dream With Me — Lyrics and Liner Notes — Updated With English Translations

Best of Jackie on the Web

Lyrics and Liner Notes header

Earlier, we supplied lyrics and liner notes for Jackie Evancho’s CD album Songs from the Silver Screen (2012). Here we turn to Jackie’s earlier album, Dream With Me (2011).

At the Christmas Eve service I attended, a twelve-year-old girl sang a carol. She did exceptionally well, for a twelve-year-old. She was poised and sincere, she clearly enunciated the lyrics. But still she sounded as we might expect someone her age to sound. Though pretty, her singing wasn’t convincing; she was unable to convey an emotional connection with the lyrics.

And then there’s Jackie. Because these are recordings, they don’t prove for posterity Jackie’s natural mastery of lyrics and interpretation. But anyone who has attended one of Jackie’s concerts will tell you with conviction that what seems remarkable on this CD is remarkable; it is not manufactured excellence; Jackie is often as accomplished in concert as she is on her recordings.
