30 of 30 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 22, 2011
Format: Audio CD
For those who have become enamored with the voice and musicianship of Alfred Boe, this recording of songs from the operettas of Franz Lehár will be met with excitement. Though this recording was made from May 19 - 21, 2009 in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and released in the UK that year, it is only now available in the US as of this year. According to Boe, "I have to say that recording the album `Franz Lehar: Love was a Dream' was the most enjoyable recording sessions I have ever been involved in. The studio was the stage of The Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow. Normally when recording the voice you get separated from the orchestra but in this case I had the opportunity to stand and record my vocal in the middle of the string section. In my opinion this creates a solid connection with the players and forms a unity of sound. Also having the live connection with your conductor makes a huge difference. There were moments in the sessions when I really picked up on the melody of the instruments surrounding me and began to really understand their contribution to the score. The Orchestra of Scottish Opera were amazing, the control they had with the delicate musical structures and simplicity of sound, for the Lehar score, was perfection. I really hope we can work together again in the future.

Franz Lehár (30 April 1870 - 24 October 1948) and it is no exaggeration to say that his 1905 The Merry Widow (Die lustige Witwe) ushered in not only a new age in Viennese operetta, but was the work which showed the way for a new style of, purely twentieth-century, musical play. Between then and 1934, when his last stage work, Giuditta, was premiered, Lehár knew an almost uninterrupted success.

I am a professional musician, therefore I feel qualified to judge Alfie's voice.He is awesome and he just soars up to high C's! I was amazed at how good he was. I have a friend who goes to London with his wife at least 4 times a year, and he has heard Alfie sing in "Les Mis" several times. Of course the one song that brings me to tears is "Bring him Home." I've found I can't listen to that song while I'm driving! Keep on singing Alfie. It would be nice if you made a sacred CD. I would buy that one for sure.

Alfie Boe is a discovery that Britain should be proud of. his voice is amazing, his phrasing, perfection, and clarity of words impeccable. I have several of his recording ad wait impatiently for the next one.

Alfie Boe's, voice has a range to the most high opera tenor to the soft tones of a love song. He is an amazing humble person.
He sang for The Queen of England and to the most average kind of people. In his album Trust, and Story Teller it's like he is talking to you and me in song.
When he sings BRING HIM HOME,. a song prayer from Les Mes. he's heart is in every word.

All of the Lehar songs are beautiful and, when sung by Alfie, are heavenly! This lovely man can sing anything magnificently.
