Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This chart-busting recording shows both sides of Brightman's personality, including sweet pop songs, like the title track (a duet with Bocelli that became a runaway hit).

Fans of small, pretty-voiced soprano Sarah Brightman will not be disappointed by this CD. In addition to some pop songs, Brightman sings high-flying excerpts from Orff's Carmina Burana, Puccini's "O mio babbino caro" (performed better by almost any other operatic soprano elsewhere), and "Alleluia" from Mozart's Exsultate Jubilate. One might call this a crossover disc; others might just see it as a recording featuring a pop singer with artsy aspirations. Whatever it is, Brightman's fans love her; others do not. Two duets with tenor Jose Cura remind the listener what opera singing really ought to sound like. --Robert Levine

5.0 out of 5 stars Brightman's voice will move you March 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I am sick to death of the opera purists deriding Sarah Brightman and belittling her accomplishments for absolutely no justifiable reason. What's this about a small voice? The orchestra drowning her out can be attributed to poor mixing. Go see her in concert and your opinions will change.
That aside, this album stays in my CD player, I can never quite bring myself to take it out. It's got a place in my heart, and it's easy to see why. She pays tribute to Queen with her stunning rendition of "Who Wants to Live Forever." Doyle's "In Pace" is one of the most fantastic songs I've ever heard. I enjoyed "Naturaleza Muerta," "La Wally," and her rendition of the Gipsy Kings "Tu quieres volver" absolutely took my breath away.
Of course all of these songs pale in comparison to the title track, the absolutely classic duet with Andrea Bocelli. The orchestra supports their voices beautifully, each singing their own part, and at the coda, where the two voices join as one, I feel as though I've touched the stars. Very few songs have ever elicited that kind of response (always bringing on chills and tears) from me, and even fewer continue to do it after all this time.
So please folks, don't let the purists turn you away from this album. Listen to it and judge it on it's own merits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best CD I've ever bought August 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've listened to this CD every day since I bought it about 2 months ago! It is so beautiful, particularly "No one like you" and "Tu Quieres Volver". It is so relaxing to listen to. As for the critics who snobbishly talk about her "small" voice and less than perfect opera technique, I find Ms. Brightman's silvery voice incredibly refreshing to listen to after hearing all those screeching divas out there! I hope she puts out more operatic CD's in the future. I would also love to have a CD of duets with Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli. This CD is worth every penny. I also enjoyed the CD's Surrender, Eden, Romanza and Sogno which I keep in my 5 carrousel CD player and play continuously on the weekends!

5.0 out of 5 stars Songbird Soothes Our Tensions October 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is particularly relaxing. I love to kick back with a glass of wine in a comfortable chair with my eyes closed and just listen.
Sarah's voice is complemented by Andrea Bocelli on the title track and Jose Cura on several others. The material runs from classical to pop, all with an operatic flavor. This is a great album to ease into opera or classical appreciation with. It is not true opera, but emulates some of the vocal and orchestral stylings associated with classical opera. Classical "purists" should look elswhere.
Sarah puts on a strong performance, exhibiting a multitude of qualities with her voice, ranging from strength to wispy warblings and everything in between. She even speaks between the final two tracks, recorded live. Her speaking voice is a surprise! If you enjoy relaxing music in a classical style, you will enjoy this CD. I would put this in her top three recordings, alongside "Eden" and "La Luna."

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Entertainment from Sarah Brightman September 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
My... how Sarah Brightman has progressed. Since The phantom of the opera, her voice has matured very much. Her style,technique and choice of material are beyond words. The album, "Time to say goodbye" is an inspirational collection of classic/pop crossover material. Purchasing the disc was worth it all the way. I like the way Sarah balances the two styles of music evenly, throughout the disc. One moment, she's an angel of music.Next, she's a full fledged opera diva. "Time to..." is definitely not an opera cd, but she has that quality in her voice. The orchestra is great too.
This is my review of the disc, going in order by tracks
Who can forget this amazing song? "Time to say goodbye", that is. It's sentimental as well as romantic. Right up to the last spine tingling notes, that leave me teary-eyed every time. The duetting pair sang this love song in tribute to (Henry Maske). "No one like you" does the same. Sarah seems to know where her heart should be. The lyrics are deeply moving. Her voice soars in the last few seconds of the track. It's a must hear. "Just show me how to love you" is powerful in every way. I call it "the sequel to "Time to say goodbye". Jose Cura's lends his lovely tenor voice to hers, letting us hear rare beauty.
"Tu quieres vovlver" is the one track I don't particularly like as much.Sarah sings in her little girl voice, going into a shrill cry at one point. The acoustic guitar solo is romantic, though. "In pace", pronounced "inn-paw-chay", is lovely. The track is sung in Latin. Sarah lets her voice go in the conclusion of the piece, bringing me to tears. "There for me" is almost like the track "just show me...".

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely....but there's more out there than this June 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sarah Brightman has a beautiful, clear soprano voice. For the most part, she sings with graceful ease and a sweet purity of tone. Her legato line is marred at times, unfortunately, by an unmannerly habit of scooping into high notes.
Some of the selections are just too heavy for her light lyric voice. Catalani's aria from "La Wally" is a good example. This pieces calls for a much bigger voice and loses its pathos when sung by a voice like Ms. Brightman's.
Brightman shows a nice penchant for coloratura singing in the Mozart "Alleluia." She is dreamy and heartrending in less operatic selections like "Who Wants to Live Forever?"
I think that the unfortunate problem with Brightman is that people don't realize that she is not the only light soprano out there with an angelic voice. Give the following a try:
Natalie Dessay: "Vocalises"
Ruth Ann Swenson: "i carry your heart"
Dawn Upshaw: "I Wish it So"
Heidi Grant Murphy: "Twilight and Innocence"
Kathleen Battle: "So Many Stars"
These sopranos possess voices that are in a similar category to Ms. Brightman's. Please give them a try. You will not be disappointed.
