Product Description

Product Description

Bryn Terfel - Bryn - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

The title, Bryn Sings Popular Classics tells it all. Here is one popular classic after another--some folk or traditional, some operatic, some religious or inspirational, some pop. The result in the throat/mind/sensibility of any other singer might be soupy, sappy or simply uninteresting, but Bryn Terfel--he of the rolling bass-baritone voice who can smoothly deliver notes and phrases at any dynamic level--turns this generous, somewhat sentimental recital into something beautiful and special. After a rousing "Toreador Song" from Carmen, sung with just the right weight (most baritones find it too low, most basses too high) comes a ravishing version of "Shenandoah"; a fine Welsh song is followed by the stunning duet from Bizet's The Pearl Fishers, with Andrea Bocelli singing the tenor part gleamingly and Terfel considerately underplaying his hand. And so it continues through Brahms' Lullaby and Schubert's Ave Maria, the "Love Theme from Titanic" (sung with great restraint), renditions of "Danny Boy" and "Home Sweet Home" that are just beautiful, the spirituals "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" and "At the River" (slightly anachronistic but still effective), the gluey "If I Can Help Somebody", and a few more. It's amazing that Terfel can bring such variety to material that is temperamentally so similar. Some of the arrangements are a bit sticky and overdone, but overall, this disc is a beauty for all seasons. It will make a lovely gift to music lovers of all types. --Robert Levine

The world's greatest living Welshman delivers on all counts with this outstanding new album. Highlights include the beautiful Pearl Fishers' Duet with Andrea Bocelli, a moving rendition of "Shenandoah", and the touching theme tune from "The Vicar of Dibley" (The Lord Is My Shepherd). There's something for everyone here, whether it is Bryn's own rousing performance of the theme from Titanic (I love the Italian), or the spectacular Toreador Song. At 78 minutes, this new album is outstanding value.

This is a wonderful mix of classic and folk songs sung by a man with a voice from heaven. It is so refreshing to hear Bryn rather than thousands of Italians....! Such deep resonance and the choice of songs is fabulous.My father died this year...his favourite song, which he sang to me a child, was "Danny Boy", we played "The Lords my shepherd" at his funeral and as a soldier, "Abide with me" was the only song I ever saw him cry to at a Remembrance service. All in all, this CD ranks among my favourite already, and my father would have loved it too. A must for anyone for Christmas.

By Andrew C. Mitchell TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 28 Jun. 2013
Format: Audio CD
Out of all Bryn Terfel's recordings this is the one to have. The voice is given a very natural treatment. All the diction is clear and the power, the gravity, the joy, the tenderness of this voice is to the fore in these offerings. But also what sumptuous accompaniments - the London Symphony Orchestra, the London Voices, Catrin Finch on harp (track 3), Neil Martin on pipes (tracks 2 and 12) and Martin Taylor on guitar (track 18). Bryn duets beautifully with Andrea Bocelli (track 4) and Sissel (track 11). There are many lovely arrrangements by Chris Hazell.
This CD affirms life's significance- from outpouring of sadness, through joy, the sense of home and a position in the universe near to the throne of God. There are songs with spiritual statements - At the River, Swing Low Sweet Chariot, The Lord is my Shepherd, Abide with me, and Ave Maria. There are classics from Bizet, Brahms, Dvorak, Schubert and Tchaikovsky. But one message that seems to come across from the whole CD is summed up with 'If I can help somebody.' There are some tender love songs including Shenandoah, the Welsh - Bugeilio'r Gwenith Gwyn, Danny Boy, Bella Notte, and the Love Theme from 'Titanic'. From the opera come the Toreador's Song which introduces this CD and the Pearl Fishers duet. I have some favorite tracks. I did not know that Dvorak's 9th Symphony 2nd movement had been given words - 'Goin Home.' (track 8). And finally the last track with its complete simplicity 'Lazybones'.
The accompanying sleeve booklet is excellent and a joy. This is the CD to own and spend time with.

My friend Phil and I love this album. The cover of 'The Lord is my Shepherd' is simply outstanding. But the ultimate highlight of this incredible masterpiece is the breath taking duet with Bocelli. We listen to it all the time; it changed our lives forever. We eagerly awaited this album for 3 years, but it was worth the wait.
Thank you Bryn for changing our lives,
your fans forever, Alex and Phil

Why have I decided to write a review of this CD? Well, I have found such happiness and peace listening to this music, I wanted to let anyone out there know it is a wonderful CD.
The song "The Lord is my Shepherd" on this CD is a lovely version, with a great choir singing in the background. Sometimes this makes me cry, sometimes it raises me up - I would recommend anyone who has not heard this, to give it a go - it is so uplifting and joyous. Bryn is a fabulous singer, he puts real feeling into his songs! Good man!

By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 9 Jun. 2009
Format: Audio CD
On this album, Bryn sings a selection of classical pieces, folk songs, movie songs, hymns and the occasional popular song that doesn't fit any of these categories. There's even a Christmas song (Ave Maria - the Schubert version), which features the brilliant Sissel as a duet partner.

The set opens in great style with Bryn's recording of the Toreador song (from Carmen). Other songs from the classical repertoire include Going home, None but the lonely heart and Brahms' lullaby. The two featured movie songs are Bella notte (from Lady and the tramp) and Il mio cuore va (from Titanic). Bryn is particularly good at singing hymns, here represented by The lord is my shepherd, Swing low sweet chariot and Abide with me. Shenandoah and Danny boy represent the folk song tradition in America and Ireland respectively. The set closes with Lazybones, a song co-written by Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer. I've heard several versions of this song and while this isn't my personal favorite, Bryn sings it brilliantly and I'm glad he recorded it.

This is yet another Bryn Terfel album that maintains a high quality from the very first track to the very last. If I haven't mentioned your favorite track, it's because they are all so great.

at last I heard , among other beautiful songs, the wonderful "Danny boy" sung by Bryn Terfel alone. I have almost all the records by him, and regretfully the version in Scarborough Fair was the only song in the Whole CD which I did not like at all.
thank you Bryn Terfel !

By Mart TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 Jun. 2008
Format: Audio CD
There are two versions of this album, this single disc release and a `special edition' 2CD set.

It makes a change to hear a collection of familiar music sung by a baritone rather than the more popular tenor and Bryn fans should be pleased with the selection of music, it's a good range of styles, with the emphasis on classical and opera excerpts plus a few traditional folk style songs. Bryn's voice works well on the opera favourites like Bizet's Toreador song (lots of rolling r's here) and sounds good with Andrea Bocelli on The Pearl Fishers duet `Au Fond du temple saint'. The folk songs and traditional like `Swing Low, Sweet Chariot' and `Danny Boy' are well suited to the deep baritone voice, and the `Ave Maria' duet with Sissel is an unusual pairing which I really think works well.

One choice I think doesn't work, simply because the music is more suited to a female voice, is James Horner's `Titanic' film theme and just doesn't come close to the emotional Celine Dion version. `The Lord is my Shepherd' is a version of the popular hymn and `Goin' Home' is a nice transcription of Dvorak's symphony No. 9.

Harpist Catrin Finch plays on `Bugeilio'r Gwenith Gwyn' and the London Symphony Orchestra provide the orchestral backing.

I would probably recommend the 2 disc version of this album for its lovely rendition of the Christmas carol `Oh, Come all ye Faithfull' plus a few other pleasant traditional folk songs included on the bonus CD.

The sleeve notes provide a few notes on the tracks plus lyrics where needed. As an introduction or a `best of' Bryn Terfel this is a good choice.
