Charlotte Church "Snow" Interview

Biography

Charlotte Maria Church was born on February 21, 1986 in Llandaff, Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom to Steven Reed and his wife Maria. The couple separated shortly after the child's birth, and she was left in her mother's care. She started singing publicly when she was only three and a half years old, singing the Ghostbusters (1984) theme with her cousin at a seaside holiday camp in ...

Of course we couldn't expect time to freeze its relentless path and forever preserve the Welsh sensation Charlotte Church in a chrysalis of precocious youth. And yet, at 15 and now taking bolder steps into expanding her repertory on Enchantment, the soprano remains a marvel of a prodigy. Here she scours a wider range of sources than on her previous albums; Church moves with breathtaking ease from classic Broadway (West Side Story, Show Boat, South Pacific) to traditional Celtic music, film ballads and even a couple of operatic numbers. Church's straightforward approach to the melody of "La Habanera" may not exactly be what Bizet had in mind for his Carmen, but fans will get double pleasure out of the singer's exquisite duet with herself on the haunting "Flower Duet" from Delibes's Lakmé. What's more, there's a greater freedom of expression and sense of how to shape a phrase in many of these tracks--notice how much there is to savour, for instance, in "The Water is Wide" or "Carrickfergus". It all adds up to a widely varied course, demonstrating the continued growth of a singularly gifted young artist. --Sarah Chin

The lovely Charlotte Church, with her radiant demeanor, enthusiasm for classical music, and a soprano voice like finely etched crystal, has made this kind of music more accessible to everyone. It is rich and beautiful and this recording flows through your sound system like gentle waters caressing the shore.
No matter what kind of music you enjoy you will find beauty here. Only the classical 'purists' could find fault with this. This is a recording to be listened to with the heart and ears and not the ego. If there is one particular high note somewhere in the stratosphere that Charlotte doesn't hit on this or her new CD "Prelude" it may just be that we don't notice because we are so enjoying this lovely girl and her exquisite voice.
I am just as apt to pop this CD in as I am Sade or the Goo Goo Dolls. This is a lush and joyful recording with one great moment after another. It is obvious she loves this music and that emotion comes across in every song. The composers and writers of these songs read like a who's who of the music world. But it is the crystal clear voice of Charlotte Church that makes them memorable to us.
1) Tonight - She really captures the joy and anticipation of this classic from Bernstein and Soundheim.
2) Carrickfergus - A beautiful Celtic song with a low whistle and an almost contemporary feel, Charlotte's voice embraces the wishful and longing tone of the song.
3) Habanera - This song is given a Spanish flavor and a gypsy feel, making it really something special.
4) Bali Hai - Anyone who has seen South Pacific will recognize this one immediately. It is full of atmosphere, the music and words of Rodgers and Hammerstein and the voice of Charlotte conjuring up images of a South Sea Island and sandy shores, and, of course, a pretty girl.

Format: Audio CD
What an amazing voice! What an amazing CD! This music truly washes over your entire soul like a thoroughly refreshing breeze, and you are almost compelled to just sit back, close your eyes, and enjoy the heavenly sound coming from your speakers. If nothing else, this album will introduce many people to beautiful realms of music that have up to now been foreign to their ears. With music from Broadway, musicals, Celtish traditions, and a little opera, this one CD opens up vast new worlds of music to untold numbers of people. Truly, there is something here for everyone. My own familiarity with songs such as "Tonight," "If I Loved You," and "Somewhere" helped convince me to buy this album (although, in all honesty, the television commercial I saw for it convinced me almost immediately). "Somewhere" alone is worth the price of the CD. I was pleased to find out that I had heard several of the other songs on here (including Habanera, Bali Ha'i, and The Laughing Song), songs I did not know by name until now. What delighted me the most, however, were the songs I had never heard before. "Carrickfergus" is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard and is in fact my favorite song on the CD. I love the Celtic tunes on here; lilting and almost fairy-like, they are so different from the types of music I am familiar with.
I could go through and extol the virtues of every single song on this album, just as Miss Church does in the liner notes--what a wonderful idea it was for her to describe why she picked each particular song on this album. Her notes lend a poignant simplicity to the selections. Her voice only reinforces this notion--amidst the complexity of these songs, there is an underlying simplicity that makes them even more beautiful.

I bought this CD simply to hear how Charlotte sounds now, at the age of 15, and I'm not disappointed. Her voice is maturing beautifully. However, I really believe she is at her best on the classical pieces, like the Flower Duet, Habanera, and the Laughing Song. These really show the power of her voice and set her apart. Any singer with a good voice can give a good rendering of Carrigfergus or The Water is Wide, or the pieces from West Side Story, but I think Charlotte doesn't do herself justice with these. If I never heard her sing anything other than folk or musicals, I'd never notice just how lovely her voice is. Opera is definitely her forte, and is truly where she comes into her own. This is what she should concentrate on.

This must surely be the best album that Charlotte has made. Her voice has now become more mature, yet still as enchanting.
Carrickfergus stands out as the best song on the album for me. In this song she perfoms it with such emotion it could make you cry.
The rest of the album is likewise beautifully crafted. The sky is the limit for this talanted lady. I wish her many years of well deserved sucess.
A must have for any Charlotte Church fans.

The awesomely talented urchin releases her fourth album in as many years, and proves once again that she has the voice of an angel. Essentially a younger Lesley Garrett, her voice has a more pure, ethereal sound - and she has an astonishing vocal range for someone of her age. This album is a delight - moving, poignant, uplifting and inspirational by turns. Charlotte's voice has matured since her debut, 'Voice of an Angel', into something more powerful and emotive. Songs such as 'The Water is Wide' showcase her astonishing ability, while she covers tracks from 'West Side Story' with aplomb. It might not be to all tastes, but this is certainly a must for anyone who admires this extremely talented and inspirational girl with a heavenly voice.
