This particular CD is one of several standards. From the religious side, she has such classics as Mawby's setting for Psalm 23, Andrew Lloyd Webber's setting for 'Pie Jesu', Franck's 'Panis Angelicus', and Parry's 'Jerusalem'. On the more classical/traditional side, she has versions of 'Danny Boy', several Celtic/Welsh tunes ('My Lagan Love', 'Suo-Gan', 'Y Gylfinir'), and even a piece from Humperdinck's 'Hansel and Gretel'.
Charlotte Church was just 13 years old when this CD was released; she has since gone from strength to strength with later releases. Her popularity has helped to revive an interest among younger listeners for music that they might otherwise overlook - that is one of the very great benefits of a career such as hers. Identified as a classical artist, yet being media savvy toward other people her own age, she embarked upon a still-growing career with this album that promises greatness.
This greatness can already be heard in its beginning stages on this recording.
Obviously I'm not the only person who thought so. Charlotte's album went double-platinum
in a matter of weeks. She was the youngest performer to be No. 1 on the UK classical charts.
Charlotte was also No. 4 on the Pop Charts, (International Charts.) Charlotte became the youngest performer ever to reach the top 100, of the US
I beg you give this CD a listen and you'll be overwhelmed not only by the wonderful album,
and gorgeous voice, but by Charlotte herself. The bubbly, adorable, teenager, with the
charming personality. The little girl, with the big "Voice of an Angel," voice. You'll be hooked for life.
Charlotte shows a lot of promise and I look forward to hearing what she can do about 10 years from now. For the time being she simply needs to grow up and continue working on her vocal skills and lay off making CDs. If it weren't for her voice and promise, I would not have even given her 3 stars.
Good luck, Charlotte. I look foward to being amazed by you in the future.
