Three reasons to buy this CD. #1: The music of Yanni is haunting & spectacular. #2: the male singers are ALL rich & expressive. #3: Renee Fleming & Katherine Jenkins are absolutely fantastic. Solo's & duets are beyond perfection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilton Head & low country essential, December 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tideland Treasure (Paperback)
This is a great book of sketches and write ups of the beautiful area referred to, by some, as low country. Birds, sea life, beach flora and fauna, and the amazing variety of life in this paradise. If you walk the beaches, it will assist you. Fishing? Identification of catch is there, sand prints, yep help there too. Leave it out on a table so you can refer to it regularly.

I usually enjoy mr. Sparks writings but this was predictable. It took effort to even complete. To me, the story line was not what I expect from Mr Sparks.

Amazing voice and truly lovely song selection. Will be listening to it for a long, long time. Maestro Domingo is a master of delivery and passion. This CD contains too many favorites to select just one tract as tops.

1.0 out of 5 stars Had to put it down, December 1, 2012

This review is from: The Casual Vacancy (Hardcover)
Sadly, 4 letter words and coarse vocabulary are not to my liking. The imagination and creative author of Harry Potter series has gone to a place I prefer not to visit. If I were able to mail this tome back to her, I would.


The Secret Keeper: A Novel
The Secret Keeper: A Novel

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner, December 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is easy to put expectation on the writings of a favorite author. This time it was worthy of the wait. Forgotten garden is still my favorite but this story comes close. Ms. Morton's ability to jump back and forth in time is exceptional and her characters are, as usual, well developed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sadly disappointing, November 16, 2012
This review is from: Merry Christmas, Baby (Audio CD)
After listening to several featured tracts in a store, I decided not to purchase this recording. I love Christmas music and have many that I play regularly. Sadly, this one was just not one I wanted for my collection. I want my music to speak of emotion and feeling. Mr Stewart has many recordings that do just that. But, not this one. There is another CD out there, which I have reviewed also, that is full of feeling and wonderful carols and hymns (even a new one, to me that is tender and beautiful) Hope you all find it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Christmas with a new and wonderful album, October 30, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: This Is Christmas (Audio CD)
No matter how many Christmas albums you have, buy one more. Better still order gifts for everyone who loves Christmas. Without a doubt, Katherine Jenkins has nailed it. It is intimate, traditional, contemporary and very personal with her touch of a childhood song. Her range is amazing and her interpretation reaches new heights with this recording. Her songs range from a velvet touch, to a clever "Santa Baby" to a spiritual celebration. This album is a must for all Katherine Jenkins fans and a magical introduction to her new USA fans. Keep Christmas year round with this beautiful album. Well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars No favors from US marketing, July 19, 2012
This review is from: Believe (Audio CD)
I'm a huge fan of Miss Jenkins and have been so for many years. (having to buy from UK at times). That being said, I do not believe the new publishing group selected the best vocals for her to sing in this offering.

Some of the selections, for me, do not match her voice so either the arrangers have ignored her strength or allowed the orchestra and back up to become too intense. Still, i am convinced she gives her all to make each song come from her heart and her love of music reflects well.

At only 32, if America allows miss Jenkins to perform those pieces that fit her style, ( like "black is the color" from daydream) she will only grow in talent. Come on America, "it ain't broke so don't fix it". She does not need marketing, she just needs more time to be as loved here as she is in the UK.

If you watched season 14 of Dancing With the Stars, you saw that there is no harder working, humble artist on the US scene than Miss Jenkins.

My missing fifth star is due to back up and selection. Her ability is 5 star.
