"Tidings" is the third studio album by Allison Crowe, released in 2003 (see 2003 in music) in EP form and expanded to full album length in 2004 (see 2004 in music). Recorded live-off-the-floor, it is primarily an album of traditional songs of the season and Christmas carols alongside cover versions of some of Crowe's favourite songs of spirituality and redemption. This collection includes several songs by fellow Canadian songwriters, along with international writers. A DVD version of this album includes one original song written by Crowe, "Whether I'm Wrong".

"Tidings" is also the subtitle of a one-hour television special, featuring Allison Crowe in performance and interview, that has been broadcast across Canada each December since 2003.
