Magnificent singing with great expression and tone colour
on 27 June 2001
What a performer this man is - and he shows how a seasoned opera/lieder performer can also sing the 'Songs from the Shows'. I have never heard such a powerful performance of You'll Never Walk Alone, and the new, to me anyway, Come Home Joe, is very moving. Bryn Terfel is blessed with a wonderful vocal instrument and, what is more, he certainly knows how to use it. He has the ability to colour the voice, makes sure every word can be heard and I, for one, wouldn't want to hear anyone else sing these after hearing Bryn. He sings with such immense feeling for the character. I would say to anyone who has not bothered to listen to this disc, you really don't know what you are missing. I have been playing it for many of my friends who don't really like 'Opera Singers', but I can tell you that they have all bought the disc after hearing Bryn sing "Something Wonderful, Wonderfully".
