Product Description

The Italian Tenor - Vittorio Grigolo - has an extraordinary background story and he now shares this through a very personal album of sacred music. Schooled at the “very source of sacred music” – in the Sistine Chapel Choir, Vittorio returns to Rome and his childhood choir to present a special collection of beautiful, serene and spiritual songs that played a large role in his musical beginnings.

The songs chosen have a very personal connection to Vittorio. Hand-selected musical gems from his time spent in the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel choir appear newly arranged and combined with eternally popular “holy hits” such as Schubert’s “Ave Maria”, Franck’s “Panis Angelicus”, Verdi’s “Ingemisco” and Mozart’s “Ave verum Corpus”.

The album also offers a wealth of diverse and novel arrangements – on some songs Vittorio is joined by the Orchestra Roma Sinfonietta, and the Sistine Chapel Choir, while on others the tenor and chamber ensemble arrangements of “Panis Angelicus”, “Ave verum corpus” and Schubert’s “Serenade” offer fresh and intimate perspectives on these popular spiritual works.

As my reviews of Vittorio Grigòlo's previous albums on the Sony label clearly show, I am a complete admirer of his tenor's voice and his art. Nevertheless I put his new CD in my player with a degree of aprehension. Was this another sugary compilation of sweet sacred melodies so apt for the upcoming Christmas? I have had enough of those. Fortunately, this is a very different kind of disc. There are of course some predictable pieces, from Franck's Panis Angelicus to Schubert's Ave Maria, but most of the tracks in the album are very little known and previously unrecorded songs of prayer that Vittorio learned and sung with the priests of the legendary Sistine Chapel Choir in the Vatican, of which he was a member from the age of 11 to 14. The children of the actual choir join the grown up artist in several of them and they both sound heavenly. Many of these pieces may not be great music, but all of them are pleasant to hear and have a profound significance in the artist's forming years and it shows. Grigòlo probably has never sung more from the heart than he has here. And in an age of mostly technical and inexpressive singing that is not a quality to be underestimated. So heartly recommended.

A truly inspiring cd. Some music I knew others I didn't but I play it all the time! It calms me down, puts me into a tranquil state of mind. Can't wait to see Vittorio sing it live on stage.
