Product Description

Voices from Heaven by Cecilia Bartoli [Mezzo-Soprano]

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This is the second installment in a recording project originally inspired by Pope John Paul II's visit to Paris in 1997 to celebrate the Worldwide Days of Youth. A surprisingly effective anthology of mostly sacred liturgical music, the selections here occasionally give the impression of "bleeding chunks" (as in the majestic opener from one of Monteverdi's sublimest creations, the 1610 Vespers) but have been chosen with imagination. Chung coordinates his forces in larger choral pieces with power and vertical balance, making a standout of the Beethovenian mystery and drive apparent in the "Sanctus" from Schubert's Mass in E-flat. Contributions by Cecilia Bartoli find the mezzo in top form--listen to her finely spun line interweave with the oboe d'amore in a selection from Bach's B Minor Mass--and as evocative as bright stained glass in Fauré's "Pie Jesu." Bryn Terfel brings charismatic presence to his one selection here (also from the Fauré Requiem). Also included are the interminable "Song for Athene" by John Taverner and a sentimental but earnest performance by Andrea Bocelli in Eric Levi's hymn for the world, "I Believe." --Thomas May

I bought this album to hear Andrea Bocelli's "I Believe", to which I still cannot listen without tears in my eyes. It is truly the most beautiful "hymn for the world" on the album! Of course, Bocelli is magical and never disappoints! Two other pleasant surprises were "A Song for Athene", the haunting melody I recalled from Princess Diana's funeral - very mysterious and moving. Bartoli's rendition of Gounod's Ave Maria is gorgeous beyond words, just like "I Believe". I believe you should buy this album - a wonderful experience.

As a choral singer, I am familiar with most of these works, but this recording knocked my socks off when I heard excerpts from it on a local classical music radio station. Not only does this CD group together some of the best music anywhere, but the performances are fantastic. The choral group has a remarkable precision and clarity in their sound that is admirable. And wonderful soloists. In summary, you might have heard many of these pieces elsewhere, but the impact of having these great performances all on one CD is amazing.

This collection (Also released as "Voices from Heaven", I believe) provides a nice retrospective of 400 years of sacred music. The choir is strong overall, and Bartoli and Bocelli (in his one song) prove admirable soloists, especially in the "Pie Jesu".
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Terfel, and for the "Libera Me" in general. What was the purpose of Faure carefully cutting most of the Dies Irae and hellfire passages if the singers attempt to put it all back in in an overdramatic rendition?

Ordered the first "A Hymn For the World" CD and loved it, especially Cecilia Bartoli. Was overjoyed to find there was a second "Hymn For the World" by the same artists. Again, the CD is great save one fatal flaw. The sound quality is very poor, often tinny, and you have to turn the volume nearly to the max to hear it properly. Tried it in several of my stereos and found it the same. Disappointing because otherwise it would be great. Again Bartoli shines, just wish it were a better recording - and from Deusche Grammophon no less!

Hymn for the World 2 is a great mixture of orchestra music and opera. Cecilia Bartoli,Andrea Bocelli and Bryn Terfel sing with the National Academy of Santa Cecilia. The music is truly inspiring and gives one a religious experience. On the album is the music of Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Haydn, Durufle,Verdi,Poulenc,Faure,Monteverdi,Bruckner,Tavener and Levi. Some of these composers I have never heard before but the music is beautiful and are all on this one album. Myung-Whun Chung conducts the music. He also conducted Bocelli's music on his Sacred Arias album which had religious and Christmas music such as Ave Maria and Panis Angelicus. There is another album that is tiltled Hymn of the World 1 that has the same opera singers. This music is truly a treasure. It is soothing and beats listening to Jingle Bells And Frosty The Snowman! If you like inspirational hymn music and relaxation this is the music for you. I hope later to get Hymn for the World 1. Ave Marie is a favorite and the lovely Cecilia Bartoli sings it. The voices on this album are truly the voices of angels!

I would describe many of the songs on this CD as "muddy" in that the vocals do not standing out enough from the background orchastration and the overall effect is one of lack of clarity. There are much better recordings of everyone on this CD. Buy the songs you like but skip the CD.

Very amusing those 4 singers, Bartoli, Terfel and Chung are very good, Bocelli not that high.
