Shame about the seven vocal numbers!
on 8 December 2012
This was the fourth Andre Rieu CD I have purchased. All the others have been 100% orchestral and great. This CD has some good non-classical orchestral tracks but nearly half of the CD has vocals which I was not expecting of an Andre Rieu CD. The quality of singing is not as good as can be found elsewhere. If I want numbers from Mary Poppins sung I'll go to the Soundtrack CD and hear Julie Andrews. I know this CD is subtitled "Songs For My Mum" but I had expected that they would all be orchestral in the Andre Rieu style. So quite disappointed with the CD but maybe ok for the low price being charged.
