There is no doubt that Lesley Garrett is a wonderful singer. Throughout the collection, she produces some really tremendous singing whilst she weaves sweetly in and out of the rich melodies. The truly magical moments come in the shape of commercial favourites such as Schubert’s Ave Maria, Fauré’s Pie Jesu and in what is now widely considered Garrett’s signature tune, Caccini’s Ave Maria.
Other highlights include Handel’s Ombra Mai Fù and Bellini’s Cast a Diva.
This is a light, classic collection of beautiful songs, which would probably not suit the taste of a serious opera enthusiast but would certainly be a valuable addition to any CD collection. As the album title suggests, it is a relaxing and calming set of wonderful songs by the UK’s favourite soprano.
