5.0 out of 5 stars Classical and Popular is a Dream Mix, 11 Oct. 2011
By 
This review is from: Daydream (Audio CD)
Daydream is Katherine's second album release on the Warner label (after Believe) and continues her subtle blend of classical, folk, welsh hymns and popular styles of music which is increasingly becoming a trademark of her recent albums. This is another collection of lovely songs which offers some surprising and innovative choices mixed with emotionally sung ballads and pop songs.

The classical include Chopin's L' Alba Verra (The Dawn Will Come) and Alexander Borodin's And This is My Beloved, both of which should please lovers of Katherine's mezzo soprano style.

Innovative is a French sung version of Les Miserables I Dreamed a Dream.

The folk hymns are a welcome inclusion, Love Divine is a powerful rendition, and Ave Maria by John Brunning is a beautiful new version. Black is the Colour is a truly dreamy traditional ballad, and the bonus track Abigail's Song will be familiar to many since it was featured in the BBC TV 2010 Christmas Special episode of Dr Who.

The pop songs stand out though as a measure of Katherine's developing voice and style. Cant Slow Down, and Delta Goodrem's Break it to my Heart (released as a single) confirm her ability to blend her skills as an all-round artist.
