Product Description

CD Description

Known predominantly as the character behind the ‘Most irritating advert’ with his boundless energy and oversized comedy moustache, what many do not know is that welsh singer Wynne Evans is a bona fide opera singer associated with Welsh National Opera for 15 years and has worked as a principal at English National Opera, the Royal Opera House and other opera houses worldwide. Wynne is also Professor of Singing at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

A Song In My Heart reintroduces many Mario Lanza classics Wynne loved as a child, to today’s audience, newly arranged by orchestrator Nick Dodd. Popular arias like "Nessun Dorma" and "Tosca", as well as some beautiful Neapolitan songs are included along with "Over There", the original song to the famous advertising jingle which has made Wynne a household name and which in fact is a famous American World War One song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy album 23 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
The orchestrations on this recording are sublime, the choice of songs perfect and Wynne's voice so beautiful. As well as the power one would expect from an opera singer, Wynne's voice has a gentleness to it which melts the heart. E Lucevan Le Stelle is amazing and enough to make a grown man cry - I know that because it brought a tear to the eye of my husband! It is a beautiful cd, one to play loudly in the car but also one to play quietly whilst relaxing on the sofa with a glass of wine in hand. A very classy cd indeed. Pure quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning! 24 Mar 2011
By Lubi
Format:Audio CD
This is a great CD. Unlike some of the other 'opera singers' doing the rounds, this bloke is a real singer and it shows! His voice is so powerful, yet sensitively used! Excellent orchestral arrangements and the voice is well recorded!
This is a lovely collection. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars If music makes you happy, then this will 16 April 2011
By Georges
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wynne Evans has headed the lists of the most hated man in television adverts. He is the vocalist with the curly moustaches and in your face delivery.

Apart from obviously having quite a sense of humour he is also, away from selling a website, a magical professional tenor vocalist produced from years of study and training.

In an interview, Wynne Evans paid tribute to the late, great Mario Lanza and made no bones about the fact most of the tracks on this CD were previously recorded by Lanza. So what's the difference?

Quite a big one. Lanza had a harder, more diamond edged vocal mitigated by a warm, smoky accent. Wynne Evans, by contrast, is as precise as Lanza but with more characterisation allied to the lyric content and a sweeter tone. You get the sense with each song he instantly drops into the rôle. Two tracks, one following the other illustrate this well. The first, 'E lucevan le stelle' from 'Tosca', is frankly, beautiful. The vocal acting is quite different. Lanza sings from the torment of Cavaradossi's anguish; Evans from the same but with a more convincing gentleness in the Tosca 'moments'. The following track is a medley of 'Core Ingratio' and 'Torna a Surriento'- the ice cream songs as they've come to be known, particularly in reference to Pavarotti's concerts. In these, Evans is every bit Lanza's equal and these renditions earn their place on this CD. I think the greatest contrast between Lanza and Evans is that Evans is by far the better vocal actor. That isn't to say if Lanza were around today this would be so. Standards were very different when Lanza was recording. There were 'concert' voices and 'opera stage' voices and one of the reasons opera got such a bad press was the acting skills didn't match the sublime vocal ones.

This guy has the most beautiful voice I have heard since Mario Lanza who I adored. But this guy I think just beats mario because the recordings are much better for a start plus the emotion in the voice. Listening to him I can honestly say brought tears to my eyes. This guy is pure genius with his singing. Is he married? lol .... I could marry him just for his voice. Beautiful, wonderful, can't think of enough great words to describe this guy's voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars All I can say is "WOW." 2 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like most of the reviewers, my first introduction to Wynne Evans was via the Gocompare commercial. The character is ludicrous (he is of course intended to be), but it was immediately obvious to me that the voice was something else. Later on he was interviewed on RTÉ Lyric FM and was revealed as a Welshman with a warm sense of humour and as I suspected, a truly fabulous voice. I have to say at this point that the tenor voice has never held very much appeal for me, partly due to over-exposure on radio of such numbers as "O Sole Mio" and "La Donna e Mobile." Mr. Evans has changed all that. After listening to the radio interview I looked him up on Amazon and discovered his debut album "A song in my Heart." The sample tracks on the Amazon website are a great help in listening to a preview of the numbers on the disc. His singing seems effortless, including those incredible top Cs. This apparent ease is of course the mark of all truly great performers. That's it - I was bowled over and could not wait to order. What a production this is, with a whole variety of different numbers and beautifully arranged orchestral backing. The disc now has a home in the CD player of my car and is a wonderful accompaniment to my every journey. Give us more!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Loveliest CD Of The Year 23 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
Wonderful songs, beautifully sung. An added bonus - the notes reveal a grounded family man, young enough to enjoy this well-deserved success and old enough not to be carried away by it. His Mother would have been proud. If you only buy one CD this year then make it this one. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastico! 27 Mar 2011
By Phil O
Format:Audio CD
This is a fabulous album - food for the soul from a heavenly West Wales voice. The arrangements give a cinematic feel to this album which compliments beautifully one of the finest Tenors on the planet. Llongyfarchiadau!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous 23 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
What fantastic singing!! At last- an honest CD with a real opera singer as opposed to some over-marketed hopeful from a talent contest. Absolutely beautifully sung- my girlfriend (and I) have listened to it 4 times already.
Can't recommend enough!
