Dreams

Dreams

Close Your Eyes / Dreams was recorded with composer John Barry on piano as a demo piece.  Sadly it never made the film it was intended for – Frances.    The music just stayed as the theme music to the film. frances

Married Man

Married Man

Married Man became the song Music of the Night in Phantom of the Opera – but it’s beginnings were very different.  Andrew wrote the song for Sarah before they were married – hence the title “Married Man” – he was married to Sarah Hugill – and so was Sarah Brightman to Andrew Graham Stewart.  You can hear below what the song original sounded like.

Spring Waters

Spring WatersSpring waters, song for voice & piano, Op. 14/11 by Sergey Rachmaninov

ALW – referring to their first British television appearance together as a married couple (a British TV chat show with Russell Harty) he says that she stole the scene. Instead of plugging her single, Unexpected Song, she chose a difficult Russian piece which appeared to stun the screaming Shaking Stevens fans in the audience into silence.

Free As A Bird

Free As A Bird

Sarah, who was divorced from the millionaire composer last year, sang a new song by her ex-husband, Free as a Bird which he composed especially for the RSPB fund raiser, Carnival for the Birds. Madeleine, who is the third Mrs Lloyd Webber, was one of the evening’s three hosts. The Opera House gala, organised by Wayne Sleep, included ballerina Darcey Bussell and stars from the Bolshoi Ballet. Most of them wore costumes designed by Jasper Conran and Anthony Price.  

STRICTLY FOR THE BIRDS DAILY EXPRESS FRIDAY NOVEMBER 8 1991  BY Mary Corbett

They had flown in from all corners of the world to roost in the gilded surrounds of the Royal Opera House, Convent Garden London. For this was undoubtedly, a Carnival for the Birds.   It was a night when imagination and  creativity took flight producing  a dazzling extravaganza or music, fashion and dance watched by the  Princess or Wales, and benefiting the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds by some £250,000.  Sarah Brightman fluttered in from Los Angeles  to warble a new creation by her ex-husband Andrew Lloyd Webber and quietly admitted she missed having a nest to land it.  I don’t have a home here anymore she chirped.  It’s an extraordinary feeling arriving in my old home town and not having anywhere to stay.  Singing Lloyd Webber’s aptly entitled finale Free As A Bird Sarah clutched a a typewritten song sheet as she stepped on stage.

Evening Star

Evening Star

Sarah recorded this song as the theme to the play “Trelawney Of The Wells”  when she appeared in it in 1992.      The song was played over the audio system inside the theatre after performances as the audience was leaving, but it was never commercially released.

Once Upon A Time In The West

Once Upon A Time In The West

Frank Peterson at Sarah’s Official Website mentioned  that Sarah recorded a version  of the theme from the film “Once Upon A Time In The West.”

SBFly Webmaster Comments: That piece is written by Ennio Morriconne and it is vocalised.

A version (some say this IS Sarah) was released under the title of The Frank Peterson project.

Leolam

Leolam

Frank Peterson at Sarah’s Official Website once talked about a song Sarah recorded for the “Timeless” (Time To Say Goodbye) Album.   The song is called “Leolam” and is sung in Hebrew.   The music was written by John Williams and is the theme for the film “Schindler’s List”.  Sadly, Mr. Williams has declined permission for Sarah’s vocal version of the piece to be released.  Film producer / director Steven Spielberg also petitioned Mr. Williams to release the song, and both Sarah Brightman and Frank Peterson tried to get the song released on “Eden” and then “La Luna” but requests were denied.

Bird in Flight

Bird In Flight

THE SONG will be cheerful, tuneful and over the top. Some of the world’s best-known divas, led by Barbra Streisand and Sarah Brightman, are lining up to perform the anthem for a new age to be sung during the royal opening of the Millennium Dome. The competition to perform the song, already being compared with Coca-Cola’s global hit I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing, is set to be as intense as the battle between Hollywood’s golden era film stars to play Scarlet O’Hara in Gone With The Wind. The BBC hopes that the opening ceremony in 537 days’ time could reach an audience of hundreds of millions. “It could overshadow the numbers watching both today’s World Cup final and the Live Aid concert of 1985: that is serious exposure,” said a BBC source last week. The New Millennium Experience company, which runs the dome, is preparing to launch a national competition for the anthem over the next few weeks, but it has already been overwhelmed by composers eager to get onto the first bandwagon of the next century.

Matt Aitken and Mike Stock, the composers behind the pop hits of Kylie Minogue and Rick Astley, have written their submission called Bird In Flight. In a similar Style to Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On, the hit ballad from the film Titanic, the climax of the big-scale orchestrated number are the words:

It seems like a new world is about to start
There is so much love in my heart
I feel like a bird in flight.

Sarah Brightman, the former Lloyd Webber musical star, has recorded a demo version of Bird in Flight but she may have been scooped by Barbra Streisand. “Yes, Ms Streisand has requested a copy of the song, which she might sing on the appropriate occasion,” confirmed a source in the singer’s New York office. Additional reporting: Rachel Fordham

Not Sarah’s Version – but this is the version released.

Flower Drum Duet

Sarah recorded “The Flower Drum Duet” for “Classics” but it was never released. It was held back due to a lot of recordings of this song being released at one time by various artists.

Sarah Brightman’s New Recording, “Harem,” Due in U.S. In June  By Andrew Gans 
April 1, 2003

Singer/actress Sarah Brightman will release her latest solo recording this summer.

According to Brightman’s official website, her new EMI recording is titled “Harem” and will be released in the United States June 20, although the CD is expected in May in the U.K. The complete track listing follows:

“Arabian Nights”
“Beautiful”
“Free” (with Nigel Kennedy)
“Harem”
“It’s a Beautiful Day”
“Mysterious Days”
“My Sultan”
Stranger in Paradise”
“The Journey Home”
“The War Is Over/Cançao do Mar” (with Nigel Kennedy and Kazem Al Sahir)
“Until the End of Time”
“What a Wonderful World”
“What You Never Know”
“Where Eagles Fly”
“You Take My Breath Away”
“Sarahbande” (Japanese version only)

Sarah Brightman, who had a seventies dance hit on the British pop charts, caught the public’s attention in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mega hit The Phantom of the Opera when she created the role of opera singer Christine Daae. She also appeared in Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love before launching an internationally successful concert and recording career. In fact, her duet with tenor Andrea Boccelli, “Time to Say Goodbye,” was certified gold in the U.S. and was number one on the Billboard charts for over 30 weeks. Her other solo recordings include “Encore,” “Classics,” “Fly,” “La Luna,” “Timeless,” “Eden,” “Fly 2,” “Dive,” “As I Came of Age,” “Songs That Got Away” and “Sarah Brightman Sings the Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.”

Where Eagles Fly

Where Eages Fly

This duet was included on at least two promo advance CD of Harem but was ultimately deleted from the final album. It has never been officially released, and now seems unlikely that it ever will be.

Paul Bateman did the arrangement in November 2002, “Where Eagles Fly” was recorded late 2002, but was unable to conduct the recording.

Peace and Harmony

Peace & Harmony

As we know now this song was not performed and so becomes a “Lost Song”

There seem to be rumours that there could be a song / duet with Sarah and another female singer called MiMi for the 2008 Olympics in China  called “Peace and Harmony” Sarah and Mimi recorded a song for the Beijing Olympics. It is called “ Peace and Harmony”.

There are more contestants, so we have to wait and see who wins. Here is what the article said:  “English Soprano Sarah Brightman and Chinese singer MiMi (Mi Cheung) have just subscribed their new duet, entitled “Peace and Harmony”, to The Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the 2008 Olympiad (BOCOG). The two singers recorded this song together with Vienna Symphony Orchestra and Vienna Choir.”  info taken from  (Now unavailable)
