Upward and Onward
I saw Les Miserables last year on PBS and "met" Alfie Boe. I ordered that DVD immediately. I didn't know about this album until later, and as soon as I saw an ad for it, I knew I had to have it. Alfie's voice is much "younger" on this and it lends a softer version of the hymns and folk songs. It's a GREAT listen!
From the Heart
La Passione introduced me to a different "side" of Alfie. I saw the diary entries on Utube as he was preparing this CD and was delighted to see his delight as he prepared the food and sang to the ladies in the kitchen. He sings with abandon, and that voice!! the voice of the gods. Five stars, Alfie. Well done!
