When Love is Gone
The title for the release comes from the Paul Williams' song Meredith performed in the iconic film 'The Muppet Christmas Carol', which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Meredith's new 2017 recording of 'When Love Is Gone' marks the first time she has performed the song since recording the original version for the 1992 film soundtrack.
'When Love Is Gone' takes the form of a narrative song cycle, based around both specially selected material and original songs. The material featured ranges from musical theatre to singer-songwriter ballads, brought together by Meredith's own self-penned and elegantly crafted musical arrangements.
Songs featured include a heart-rending interpretation of Stephen Sondheim's "With So Little To Be Sure Of", a rare and unique cover of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "There's Me" (from the original production of 'Starlight Express' arr. James McConnel) Barry Manilow's evocatively tragic composition "Sandra" and the premiere studio recording of Agnetha Fältskog's powerful and passionate solo ABBA song "I'm Still Alive". New material is represented by two compositions written by Meredith ("Hold Me" and "Everything That's Me") and "The Rules", a hauntingly dramatic original song written especially for the album by musical theatre writers Stephen Keeling and Shaun McKenna.
Braun has been a leading West End performer since 1990. Her illustrious theatre credits include originating such roles as 'Betty Schaeffer' in 'Sunset Boulevard', 'Lily' in the RSC's 'The Secret Garden' and playing both 'Eponine' in 'Les Misérables' and 'Christine' in 'The Phantom of the Opera'.
