about

This compilation of songs performed by Philadelphia-area musicians- P.E.A.C.E. (Philadelphia Entertaining Artists Community Endeavor)- provides some fresh new original holiday music and a few new takes on traditional holiday songs. This collection was conceived, curated, and constructed by Matthew Gordon, one of the more than 80 musicians and 25 acts contributing to this album, to showcase a wide range of holiday emotions and musical styles represented by the rich Philadelphia regional music scene. In the spirit of the holidays, you may download the collection, or individual tracks, for free! However, we would appreciate your making a contribution of any amount, of which the proceeds will be donated to local charities that help the homeless and home-challenged, including PhilAbundance in Philadelphia (50%), Musicians On Call of Philadelphia (25%), and Habitat For Humanity of the Philadelphia region (25%).

All song copyrights are retained by the artists. Songs and recordings in this collection shall not be sold or re-used commercially in any fashion without the express written permission of the artist. Artists may be contacted directly thru the websites listed for each track. Please be sure to purchase their other music and attend their shows!

Track Name: 10-Michael G. Ronstadt & St. Mary, St. Michael - 10-The Next Few Hours
THE NEXT FEW HOURS
Michael G. Ronstadt & St. Mary, St. Michael

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
I’M THINKING OF MY SCHEMES
HOW TO GET ON A FLIGHT
FOR NEXT YEAR’S BIG DREAMS
BRING ON THE EGGNOG
BETTER MAKE IT VIRGIN
DON’T NEED TO GET SO DRUNK
SINCE WE NEED TO PLAY IN TUNE

THE ROOM IS LOUDER THAN ONE LONG HOUR AGO
FULL OF OUTER SPACE-GOING, GROUPS OF GOONS
BUT I’LL SOON BE HOME, FAMILY THANKFULLY LOOMS
SHARING TRADITION,
EVER AND NEVER CHANGING,
EVER AND NEVER CHANGING

I REMEMBER BEING YOUNG
SITTING IN THE COOL NIGHT’S AIR
WITH THE MUSIC FLOATING ROUND
WHILE CLOSING MY EYES
I WAS WITHOUT A CARE
OR DESIRE TO CHANGE THINGS
MY PLACE WAS IN THAT SPOT
WHILE THE HARMONIES SANG
IT’S NOW CHRISTMAS EVE
THE FAMILY HAS GATHERED
AND I HAD TO TAKE A LEAVE
FOR TEN LONG HOURS
I’VE NOW GOTTEN HOME
THE FOOD IS ALL BUT GONE
BUT THAT’LL BE JUST FINE
SINCE NO MOOD HAS SOURED

THE ROOM IS LOUDER THAN ONE LONG HOUR AGO
FULL OF LOVING SOULS, THANKFULLY GATHERED
NOW THAT I’M HOME, FAMILY IN THE ROOM
SHARING TRADITION,
EVER AND NEVER CHANGING,
EVER AND NEVER CHANGING

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
I’M HANGING ON THE COUCH
GETTING ON A FLIGHT
I WON’T THINK OF NOW
BRING EGGNOG THIS TIME
FULLY LOADED
DON’T NEED TO WORRY A BIT
FOR THE NEXT FEW HOURS
