Hayley Westenra of the pure voice
on 21 January 2017
Here we have a soprano with a wonderfully pure voice and with such a rich diverse collection comprising 17 tracks there is something for everyone. Even the popular opera aria 'O Mio Babino Caro' is performed with great aplomb with which many an opera star would be content. In fact the purity of her voice is such that at least one of her versions( on her first released CD) I have never found equalled never mind surpassed. Other gems to watch out for here are the Bach/Gounod 'Ave Maria, 'May it be', 'Danny Boy,' 'The Water is wide' and so on. In particular, I would single out the 'Ave Maria' because this requires precise voice control which many would find a daunting challenge but not Hayley.
