Hi, Folks -

From the PBS "Chris Botti in Boston" presentation that ran throughout March, 2009, here's "Emmanuel".

"Emmanuel" is one song from the 1970 album "Wings" by French composer Michel Colombier (1939-2004). Wikipedia says:

Petula Clark chose him as her Musical Director and invited him to come with her to the United States. In addition to arranging her material, he co-wrote with her a number of songs. She introduced him to Herb Alpert of A&M Records, who immediately signed him as an artist/composer/performer. This collaboration gave birth to the legendary album Wings. A rock oratorio which made use of a symphony orchestra and choir and prefigured the work of such bands as Queen, it garnered three Grammy Award nominations and spawned a Genie Award-winning television special.

I believe oboe was the main musical voice in the original "Emmanuel" recording.

There's a very nice rendition of "Emmanuel", featuring the inimitable Toots Thielemans on harmonica, at the Colombier website:


Thanks to YouTuber PBS.

Who wrote the song, I hate to see that evening sun go down?

"I hate to see that evening sun go down" is a line from a song named ''Blues in the Night'', written by Harold Arlen and performed by dozens of singers and bands from the Big Band era, up until now. My favorite was done by Miss Jo Stafford. I hope this is what you're looking for.
