Happy New Year to anyone reading this. I bought the album as a Christmas present for my wife, but I will be honest and say it was as much for me. The album is probably this best yet of the annual classical series. The choice of music very well considered with a excellent balance between traditional classic both vocal and orchestral, with the counterpoint of modern classical treatments from Alfie Boe, Aled Jones etc, plus the easy listening of film & television theme adaptations, to the brilliance of Luciano Pavaroti "Nessun Dorma". This one I would happily reccomend.
