Editorial Reviews

Product Description

On his forthcoming Atlantic album, On Eagle's Wings, Michael Crawford steps forward with a moving and touchingly performed collection of sacred songs. For this enticing new release, the acclaimed stage & screen performer searches for spiritual serenity while delving into his youthful days singing in London's historic cathedrals as a member of his church choir. In recording the album, Crawford was joined by Atlantic labelmate Maire Brennan of Ireland's Clannad(on a refreshingly new take of Amazing Grace), The American Boychoir, and the St. Olaf Choir of Minneapolis. Together they create the stirring, reverent tone that lifts the lyrical message of each inspirational track to it's height. In addition to its newly recorded material, the album is further highlighted by Crawford's powerful mastery of "Ave Maria." Certified Gold by the RIAA. (2/01)

Best known to American audiences for his long-running title role in the Broadway smash-hit Phantom of the Opera, Michael Crawford issued On Eagle's Wings as the predecessor to his Emmy-winning PBS special of 1998. Blessed with charisma and classically superlative pipes, Crawford does a nice turn with his collection of easy-listening sacred and inspirational tunes. Christians with a penchant for show tunes and flowery vocals will delight in Crawford's renditions of "Amazing Grace" (with additional vocals by Maire Brennan), "I'll Walk with God," and "Ave Maria." Eagle's Wings closes with the splendid "Now the Day Is Over," featuring strong orchestration and the pleasing tones of both the American Boys Choir and the Saint Olaf Choir. --Paige La Grone

5.0 out of 5 stars Soothing, comforting and inspiring all at once... December 11, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I knew of Michael Crawford from his role in "Phantom of the Opera," and I love watching Brian Boitano skate to his performance of "Music of the Night." But "On Eagle's Wings" was the very first complete CD of his music I'd ever heard, and it was a gift from a dear friend. This CD has become one of my most treasured possessions. I never get tired of listening to it, and I can never choose one or two of the songs over the rest. Whenever I listen to it, I always listen from beginning to end. I didn't expect to hear an operatic voice, and in fact I'm glad I don't! One thing that impresses me *very* much is Michael's diction. He enunciates every word so clearly, on every song, that if it weren't for the fact that five of the songs had been new to me, I wouldn't have needed to follow the lyrics at all! I first heard this CD at a rather rough time in my life. After I heard the entire album, my heart felt literally filled to overflowing with such a sense of peace, healing, and reassurance that yes, God IS in his heaven, and even when everything isn't right with my world, it can and will be, if I ask God to help me work hard enough. No other music has ever done that for me. Four or five of my friends have bought the CD on my opinion of it, and I intend to give it to my entire family for Christmas. I want them to have it for whenever they need the message of peace and comfort it brings. I cannot recommend "On Eagle's Wings" highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! What a voice! Great CD, too. September 20, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard Michael Crawford sing, I thought, "Wow! His voice is like that of an angel's!" I love this CD, too. "The percussion on "Amazing Grace" is SO beautiful. "The Holy City " and "Joseph's Lullaby" are pretty. "Not too Far from Here" will warm even the coldest heart and twist it. This CD is perfect for the Christian heart. God bless you, Michael, my angel of music. I thank you for giving me your beautiful music, and I thank God, too. He gave you the most beautiful gift in the world: your voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Need hope and beauty? It's here. March 10, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
No words can express the beauty I found in this CD! Michael's God given talent is evident and his use of it to praise the Lord is magnificent! I bought this based on reviews found here and learned of the title tract used in celebration at a recent funeral. I have many Christian CD's, but this is special! I was blown away by this CD and will purchase several more next week for friends and family as gifts. In an uncertain world, a CD like this renews hope and reassures us that with faith, all things are possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the Best!!!! September 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I first heard this CD while on retreat, and I knew I had to have a copy. Michael Crawford's voice is absolutely magnificant. His rendition of the hymns on this CD take me away from the troubles of this world and I can hear God speaking to me.
There is an old Irish saying "To live above with the saints we love, that would be pure glory, to live below with the saints we know, that is another story." Listening to this CD takes you all the way to heaven with the saints and angels praising God.
I love the old classics Amazing Grace and On Eagle's Wings, and was delighted with a couple of songs that were new to me - I'll Walk with God and Not Too Far From Here. This CD will make you smile, and maybe make you cry, as you realize how much God loves you.

Michael's voice is the perfect vehicle for this genre of music. His own spirituality comes through in each track, from the traditional Latin of "Panis Angelicus", to the standard "The Holy City" to the contemporary "Not Too Far From Here". The emotion and conviction with which Micheal has always infused his show tunes and love songs has done new and marvelous things for this collection of religious songs. I challenge any soul who believes in the Living God to listen to "Joseph's Lullaby" and not shed a tear when the image of St. Joseph praying over our Savior's bed is so clearly and lovingly portrayed by this artist's vocal palate. Thank you Michael, once again, for an hour of listening pleasure. What your rendition of "Love Changes Everything" has done for my heart, this collection has done for my soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars I listen to this CD a dozen times a day. December 12, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I love everything Michael Crawford does whether it is a play, a movie, comedy or music. This is my favorite. It nourishes my soul. I had to laugh at one of the reviews where the guy panned it. I wonder how much talent HE has. Michael is the most multi-talented performer I've ever heard. He can do EVERYTHING.

5.0 out of 5 stars On Eagle's Wings September 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I know that Michael puts a great deal of thought into each album that he does, as he did with this one. It is a wonderful inspirational album. These type albums are sometimes hard to sell, but in this day and time of such horror, I find the words expressed with his marvelous voice to be very comforting. Everyone should own this album. The words in On Eagle's Wings are so beautiful, I had the song sung at my husband's funeral this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent choice for 'Phantom of the Opera' fans April 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This collection of gospel songs would be perfect for any spiritul person even without Michael Crawford as the artist singing. Having him perform these uplifting musical pieces is a definate bonus. I would encourage anyone who likes Michael's performance as The Phantom to try this album out. It is pure pleasure.
