This isn't really the 'Best of' Sarah Brightman at all. It's more 'these are the most famous songs I have done so you will pick this CD up and buy it' of Sarah Brightman. Besides, she has three other 'Best Of's on release which are all remarkably better than this one.

It's worrying that someone new to Sarah Brightman would buy this and then think this is what Sarah has to offer. Practically all these songs are classical. There is no problem with that but it's only one of the many areas that Sarah has explored throughout her career. It was to my understanding that a 'Best Of' really does showcase the best of that artist. This compilation of her songs is truely pigeon-holed to meet classical standards, which is foolish since Sarah is not an opera singer. Classical singer, yes, she can be, but not an opera singer. Whilst I have never heard a more beautiful version of Nessun Dorma, or Time To Say Goodbye Sarah's area of expertise is crossover which is where this album is slightly misleading. Sarah is a master at mixing songs and giving them a radically different interpretation. She also has a wonderful collection of original songs but none of her best are on this album. What makes Sarah so popular and unique is the original or semi-original material from her albums Eden, La Luna and Timeless. They are not on here. Who Wants To Live Forever, Deliver Me, There For Me, Tu Quieres Volver, Eden and He Doesn't See Me are just a select few that should have reached this compilation. My advice is to buy her 'The Very Best of 1990-2000' which paints a more accurate picture of Sarah's career. True, it doesn't have her hits from Harem, but who cares when this collection only has two songs (poor ones at that) from Harem anyway?

if you are new to sarah brightman give it a try and take no notice of all this "cross over artist"talk, sarah has a beautiful pure and well trained soprano voice

just gorgeous thankyou sarah!

Sarah Brightman is the original voice of an angel. Her voice has a unique quality that is both sensual and comforting. This collection has been chosen well as it features some of her very best recordings. Her recording of The Music Of The Night from the Phantom of the Opera always moves me. Sarah's Ave Maria is faultess and beautiful. And A Question of Honour provides the perfect bookend to this collection. A must-buy.

Although Mrs. Brightman's voice is perfect in almost every type of music, this album has a little flaw at having chosen the repertoire no so carefully, making the listening experience a little bit lengthy. The production is excelent in the sound department. In the graphical concept, I think it would've been better produced, since the "Classics" word gives a more conservative idea of what's in the interior of this recording concept, and with the exceptionally good resources available in England regarding the Music Industry, a 19th Century concept with Streets, Stages and Wardrobe of the time, would have been proven a perfect choice for the impecable Sara's image.

I fail to see how anyone could not love the sound of this lady's voice, it is pure heaven, so crystal clear. Sarah Brightman has to be one of the worlds greatest singers, she actually sings and not screams like a lot of today's so called artists. Buy this, sit back and enjoy the voice of a nightingale at its very best.

By Mart TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 29 Oct. 2007
Format: Audio CD
Fans of Sarah Brightman have expressed mixed opinions on this `Best Of' release.

Being labeled as a `crossover' artist I think can be a burden, for there are times when he/she will perform opera and classical music but get criticized by the `classical buffs' for trying to step on the toes of their treasured elitist professional musicians of the classical world.

Then there is the criticism from fans of `popular music', who see their idol apparently deserting their pop roots and alienating themselves by joining the orchestral high society club.

So when pop meets classical is there always friction?

No, I don't side with either of these views, for I believe everyone is free to sing anything they like. Whether they sing it well is a different matter of course, but I just don't see that there needs to be a conflict of interest between the two genres.

Classical and opera music can be found everywhere in today's popular music, and it is the skills of the writer and performer which enable the meeting of the two to become a friendly one. The term crossover may be recent, but the practice has been around for generations.

This is well illustrated by J.S.Bach's famous `Air on G' (Hamlet cigar advert for older readers), the baseline of which crossed over to the pop/rock world and was used by the band Procol Harum on their massive 1967 hit `A Whiter Shade of Pale'. Surely an artist should be encouraged to use classical compositions when they can be turned into such inspirational pop music like this?

For me, the highlights of this album include most of the tracks, it's that good. The only real disappointment was the Handel aria `Lascia ch'io pianga', for I feel the additional vocal embellishments don't suit it.
