This review is from: River Of Dreams - The Very Best Of Hayley Westenra (Audio CD)
This album is worth the price for Now is the Hour on it's own.
A beautiful Maori song (Po Atarau / Harere Ra) that was a huge hit about 1948 sung by Gracie Fields,
This version of Now is the Hour by Hayley is my definitive version of the song, sung with an intimate understanding of the Maori culture and language, just melts the heart with it's beauty, What a gorgeous voice !
Should also bring back some great memories for the older listeners, My Da just loves it :-)
Gorgeous version of Christine McVie's Songbird on this as well.
Two versions of Ave Maria the Bach/ Gounod version and the Caccini version.
17 tracks in all you won't need the remote to skip over any tracks on this collection, You may need the remote to press repeat a few times as some of the music on this album just massages the soul about as deep as a female voice can !
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
