Product Description

CD Description

Produced by Karl Jenkins and Nigel Wright, O Fortuna was recorded between July and October of 2009. and is a natural progression from Rhydian’s debut release. As well as being backed by a welsh male voice choir, the album sees him teaming up with classical heavyweight Karl Jenkins, opera superstar Bryn Terfel, harp virtuoso Catrin Finch and the legendary Dame Kiri Te Kanawa. Rhydian pays tribute to his Welsh heritage with a collection of much loved Welsh favourites such as "Land Of Our Fathers" and "Myfanwy", classic hymns like "How Great Thou Art", musical favourite "Anthem" from the musical Chess, pop classics "Annie’s Song" and "The Living Years" and the classical anthem "O Fortuna" . The album also includes a special new track, "I Won’t Let You Walk This Road Alone", written for Rhydian by Grammy award winning songwriter/producer Walter Afansieff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stand-out performances! 27 April 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A truly wonderful album with " hair rising on the back of your neck" tracks.Commercial classical pop at it's very best. I especially commend one track I WON'T LET YOU WALK THIS ROAD ALONE because I have an easy listening show on Radio Tudnofm and this song has been constantly requested since I inadvertantly played it by mistake. NOW..even I think this track should have been released as a single. You've missed a trick here Rhydian...requests still keep coming in.Buy the album!!

5.0 out of 5 stars O Fortuna 19 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely loved this album. Fabulous choice of songs. I play it every time I go out in the car and have also downloaded it onto my computer You can tell Rhydian had more input in this album, he knows what suits his voice better than anyone else. Well done Rhydian.
I also purchased one for my daughter, and she loved it also, and for the same reasons.

My daughter and I saw him in concert in Cardiff last year........wow, he was absolutely fabulous... brought tears to our eyes. An incredible guy with an incredible voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than his debut 1 Dec 2009
By Just Me
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is more classical than his first but truly wonderful. Every track is beautifully sung and Rhydian's voice is rich and compelling. He certainly more than holds his own in the duets with Bryn and Dame Kiri and he touches heart and soul with Ave Verum. Anthem and O Fortuna are powerful vehicles for his talent. The show stealer for me is I Won't Let You Walk This Road Alone, a lovely, touching new song. If his first album was his graduation, in this we hear the man, in his element.

5.0 out of 5 stars O fortuna 10 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely fab. As an oldie who didn't watch him winning programme I was amazed to suddenly hear him singing The Anthem on TV. I had to buy the recording & am pleased with it, especially as I am Welsh.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rhydian - O Fortuna 25 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
The second CD from that most unusual of artiste, this not one for the fainthearted. Strongly opera influenced, and with Rhydian duetting with Kiri Ti Kanawa on "Benedictus", and Bryn Terfel on "Myfanwi", this is a powerhouse of a performance on a heavyweight CD collection.
Rhydian, (or his management!) have shown that he is not afraid to do something different, and in all it is an entertaining CD within its own genre of strong operatic style numbers. If you were expecting something along the lines of 'Rhydian performs Meat Loaf' as his second CD offering, then you will be disappointed, (though such a CD would be welcome !).
Theree are certainly no weak performances on this, and I found it fascinating listening; his rendering of "Land of My Fathers" is my personal favourite.
So, if you are feeling a little jaded with Cheryl or Lady Gaga, give this a whirl - it's different enough to be surprisingly enjoyable

5.0 out of 5 stars That's how to sing
This is a masterclass in how to sing. Benedictus with Kiri te kanwa is the best recording of this song I've ever heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rhydian at his best
A good selection of pieces that certainly does what Rhydian stands for he has not used his voice for pure commercial gain but to provide an eclectic mix of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music
Glad I sent for this cd. Rhydian has such a beautiful voice and should have won on the show. Benedictus and Annie's songs are probably my favourites but not a bad song on the cd. Read more
