about

“Christmas in the Harbour”, looking out Allison Crowe’s window – and music as immediate as the falling snow. This carol from songwriter Gary O’Driscoll’s first heard some 35 years ago – in an holiday special of “Up at Ours”, the NL television comedy-drama series created by actor, playwright+ Gordon Pinsent. It's now a perennial favourite.

Christmas in the Harbour

Composed by Gary O’Driscoll
Performed by Allison Crowe

Toora-loora, loora-lay
Christ the King was born today
Hark the herald angels say
It's Christmas in the harbour

Church bells ring out loud and clear
People come from far and near
All men drink their Christmas cheer
It's Christmas in the harbour

Younger faces all aglow
smile beneath the mistletoe
Yule log embers brightly glow
It's Christmas in the harbour

Toora-loora, loora-lay
Christ the King was born today
Hark the herald angels say
It's Christmas in the harbour

Children sleep without a sound
all nestled in their eider-down
Snow is falling softly down
It's Christmas in the harbour

Toora-loora, loora-lay
Christ the King was born today
Hark the herald angels say
It's Christmas in the harbour

Trees are laden down with snow
It's off to midnight mass we go
Hand-in-hand across the snow
It's Christmas in the harbour

Toora-loora, loora-lay
Christ the King was born today
Hark the herald angels say
It's Christmas in the harbour

Younger know, they dance and sing
and join in all the jannying
Peace on earth, good will to men
It's Christmas in the harbour

Toora-loora, loora-lay
Christ the King was born today
Hark the herald angels say
It's Christmas in the harbour

Toora-loora, loora-lay
Christ the King was born today
Hark the herald angels say
It's Christmas in the harbour
