Commissions 6: Love Come Down

Calamateur – Love_Come_Down.mp3

(This track is the 6th from a new collection of songs entitled Commissions 2008-2009. The 1st one is here, the 2nd here, the 3rd here, the 4th here, the 5th here.)



Earlier this year I was asked to write and record a song for a DVD being made by Blythswood Care.

The DVD will be shown in churches around Scotland (and possibly beyond) as part of their Shoebox Appeal ’09 in which people are asked to fill an empty shoebox with items such as toiletries, clothes, stationery and sweets for someone in need in Eastern Europe, India or Pakistan.

Last year 132,000 shoeboxes were sent out, bringing the total since the appeal began in 1993 to 1,122,000.


The song I wrote for the short film (which you can watch above) is called ‘Love Come Down‘.

I also recorded another song, ‘Oh Holy Night’, sung by Heather Jamieson, which is for an alternate version of the DVD to be shown nearer Christmas time. You can see it here.

The super-talented Mark Hilditch played keyboards on both songs.
