Product Description

Friar Alessandro has recorded an album of Christmas Carols and sacred arias, or as he describes it, an album of Joy. Since his first album was released, Alessandro has captured the hearts of people around the world with his beautiful voice, and this album will now fill those hearts with Joy. When recording Voice From Assisi, his first album, Alessandro had never been on a plane before. Since then he has now been on 18 flights, throughout Europe. For this album he travelled even further, to Bethlehem to record two of the tracks – his first visit to the Holy Land. Alessandro performed Adeste Fideles (Oh Come Let Us Adore Him) in the place where Jesus was born and he performed in the Shepherd’s Field where the Angel appeared to the Shepherd’s to tell them of the birth of Jesus. He could not believe he was there – it was magical, and the magic is captured in this new album. Also featured on two of the tracks is the official chorus of the Metropolitan Cathedral, Buenos Aires ‘Coro Regina Coeli’. They are the official choir to Pope Francis, when he was Archbishop in Argentina. They perform on Alto E Glorioso Dio with Alessandro, a beautiful prayer written by St. Francis. Voice of Joy is an album of beautiful music, a beautiful voice from a wonderful man, a celebration of Christmas - an album of Joy

Friar Alessandro is an unusual star. He's a monk, for starters. He is also a man who radiates the joy and love of God, quite shy, but a very gifted singer. He not only has a beautiful strong voice, but his singing has a quality of peace, healing, restoration, which comes through even if he sings in a language you don't understand, as I've found with the songs in Italian and Latin. His singing is not just a talent, it's a vocation. I hope we'll hear a lot more from him in years to come.I highly recommend this album,as well as his previous one.

I first became acquainted with the music of Friar Alessandro when I vistied the Royal Albert Hall for the Big Sing. I assumed at the time his monks attire was a stage prop (although I knew he was a monk). I was pleasantly surpised to discover that not only had he recenlty brought out two albums as a new discovery by Warner, but that he has a truly beautiful voice off the stage. All his profits go to a Fransiscan charity.

I love his version of Adeste Fidelis (O come All Ye Fidelis) and Joy to the World (in Italian) in a jovial operatic rendering which would do Pavarotti proud. Friar Alessandro's version of 'Ave Maria' is stunning. Amongst the best I have ever heard. He makes the versions by Leona Lewis, Richard & Adam and Jonathan & Charlotte sound distinctly amateurish in comparison. This guy is a serious singer!

It doesn't have to be Christmas - I urge you to sample this or download it yourself if you are a fan of seriously *good* singing without being pompous or self-important. Hios frist album 'Voice from Assissi' is very good, too.

I was looking forward to receiving this CD after reading lots of reviews but when I listened to it for the first time I was not sure if I totally liked it. I believe Friar Alessandro has an untrained voice which you can detect in his singing, and although he has a wonderful rich quality to it, I think it's one of those voices you either like or don't like. I would have to listen to it a few more time to see if grows on me but at the moment I'm not rushing to put it on again.

I am very happy I have bought this cd. I have his first as well, and will no doubt buy his third. I felt so much better after listening to Voice Of Joy. Had been feeling a bit down and sorry for myself, but this certainly lifted my spirits. A good choice of music, although I would have liked to have had a more adventurous selection. It tends to be the usual popular pieces. Maybe next time.

I enjoyed this latest CD by Friar Alessandro and it introduced new material in a refreshing way - however, I don't feel it had the depth of soul that his first one did. It seemed more of a commercial venture.
