New Horizons is utterly breathtaking, as Aled's velvety-smooth voice once again exhilirates, calms, inspires and moves one to tears. Aled's albums always have a special something... his deep passion for music glows from every song. This album is a stunning collection of music which showcases his extraordinary talent as he flows effortlessly, not only between a variety of styles, but also linguistically through his native Welsh, plus Italian, French, Latin and of course English.
Every song is a delight, with some notable treasures. I can't help but be moved by the hauntingly beautiful "Agnus Dei" which was specially written for him (and is so perfect for his voice), the gentle, melodic "Caro Mio Ben", his goosebumpy rendition of "Edelweiss", his ever-so-romantic "Stranger in Paradise" , the lovely "I Found A Dream" and the soul-stirring Welsh National Anthem, "Mae hen wlad fy Nhadau".
New Horizons is the jewel in the crown of Aled's magnificent albums.
