Soothing and uplifting,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Onward (Audio CD)
This is the first Alfie Boe CD that I have ever bought, and I have loved listening to it. This particular album has a very soothing and uplifting choice of songs - some might think it is a 'religious' choice, but I would say it is an 'inspirational' selection and it really wouldn't matter what your faith or beliefs. Just enjoy Alfie Boe's incredible voice, the fantastic music... and you might gain comfort from the lyrics as well.
I have just one very tiny niggle, and that is the interpretation of the track "Dear Lord and Father of Mankind". The final line of that is "O still small voice of calm", which should be sung very very softly - but Alfie really belts out the line at full capacity. Somehow it doesn't seem quite right to bellow that beautiful line out in a voice that is anything but still, small or calm! But that's a very minor observation.
