When A Child Is Born" is a popular Christmas song. The original melody was "Soleado", a tune from 1974 by Ciro Dammicco (alias Zacar), composer for Italy's Daniel Sentacruz Ensemble, and Dario Baldan Bembo. The tune was based on Damicco's earlier tune "Le rose blu" published in 1972.
When A Child Is Born. Bring mich heim, du weite Straße.
Christmas Celebration Band When a Child Is Born. Tiger B. Smith When a Child Is Born.
child is born A rosy fume settles all around Youve got the feel youre on solid ground For a spell or two no-one seems forlorn This comes to pass when a child is born (spoken) And all of this happened Because whe world is waiting Waiting for one child Black, white, yellow, no one knows But a child that would grow up. and turn tears to laughter Hate to love, war to peace And everyone to everyones neighbour Misery and suffering would be forgotten forever Its all a dream and illusion now It must come true, sometimes soon somehow All across the land dawns a brand new morn This comes to pass when a child.
Christmas albums tend to be a blend of the traditional and familiar with the style of the recording artist, and jazz pianist Geri Allen's A Child Is Born is no exception. Allen has a technically proficient, often elaborate style as a pianist, and she uses it in her evocations of Christmas carols and hymns.
The world first heard of Lennart Nilsson in 1965, when LIFE magazine published 16 pages of his photographs of human embryos. The shots were immediately reproduced in ’Stern’, ’Paris Match’, ’The Sunday Times’, and other publications. Microscopes and the cameras were Nilsson’s main passion even in childhood. In time, the ambition formed to show the world the beauty of the human body at the micro level. He managed to take his first photos of a foetus already in 1957, but they weren’t good enough to publish. In a month, the baby will be born. Nilsson’s book, ’A Child is Born’, was published in 1965. It sold out in just a few days and has been republished many times, becoming one of the most popular photography books of all time. Lennart Nillson is now 91.
