When the Tenors (formerly the Canadian Tenors) joined David Foster's new Verve Records, the release of this, their second studio album was much delayed but boy oh boy was it worth it! The production value is outstanding with a solo violin on the opening bars of "Amazing Grace" that'll have you weeping like a baby even before the vocals begin.

The Warded Man: Book One of The Demon Cycle by Peter V. Brett
This is a story of a dark and dangerous champion battling the overwhelming evil that seeps from the very ground of a dark and dangerous world. The world-building here is detailed and evocative and the central character moves from innocence thru betrayal to a strength hard won by a path that is twisted and original. The complexity of some of the supporting cast, particularly the female characters could be deeper but that may well unfold in later books. Absolutely a cut above most of the fantasy fiction on the market.

They say that it takes 10,000 hours to master a skill. If so this recording demonstrates more than 40,000 hours of musical mastery. The voices and phrasing transcend. And while I find some of the tracks over-produced for my taste, quality is all over this recording. There is no doubt in my mind that what these gentlemen are doing is not opera nor classical, but rather moving forward an entirely unique musical genre, classical crossover. It makes me happy.
