For more than ten years Sissel has dazzled Norway with her crystal clear, angelic voice. As far as I know, the only other countries that release her music are England and Japan(meaning America only has the [pricey] imports). If you can't afford all of her albums, you might as well get this one. The list of tracks on Amazon here is a little confusing, as it lists the sixteen best hits of Sissel, but not the two bonus tracks this Japanese edition holds. The first two songs are "Summer Snow" and "Seven Angels". Two beautiful songs from a Japanese movie Sissel recently sang in. Both of these songs have soothing panpipe music, poetic lyrics, as well as Sissel's serenade(she does very well in the high notes). The other tracks come from her albums, many of the songs are religious related and/or traditional Norwegian songs. Most of the songs come from her album "Innerst I Sjelen"(Deep Within My Soul). It provides a good sample of her folk influence, but I wish it had more songs from her first three albums, all of which are very hard to get a hold of(I had to wait four weeks to get Sissel's first album through the internet). Before I made the mistake of saying no songs from "Glade Jul" were used, but actully, track 3 is from "Glade Jul", so my mistake! I still think more songs from her earlier albums should have veen used(where is her duet with Placido Domingo?). This album is still very lovely and enjoyable. It provides a good sample of singing in both Norwegian and English. One very enjoyable track is the remake of the Beatles' "Here, There, And Everywhere". I also liked the concert versions of "My Tribute" and "Amazing Grace". These songs are a very good example of her gospel style. I recommend though, giving "Prince Igor" a skip.Read more ›

One of the other titles I purchased while exploring Sissel's work. This Best Of represents many songs of her Norweigian repetoire. They have an Enya and folk feel and are pleasantly presented. Even if you don't know the language, they are a joy to listen to. Unique to this CD are the first two tracks, which were originally only on a CD single. Both feature panflutist, Georghe Zamfir, and similar to his previous work with the great Nana Mouskouri on "The Lonely Shepherd", collaborating with Sissel creates magic on both tracks featured. There are a couple of English songs included from pre-US albums that are also excellent. Though the Japanese import is a bit pricey, it would be worth it for an overall taste, especially for the Sissel fan who wants to collect all her material.

If you are hurting for whatever reason - put on Sissel and let it flow out of you. The music will carry it away. Worth the money!

This is another collection of Sissel's beautifully presented music. If you have found this CD just consider yourself very, very fortunate., buy it and enjoy it. You won't be disappointed. Very few people have heard of Sissel in the West, despite her being in the limelight in Scandinavia for over 25 years. Most comments I've heard from those who appreciate a Soprano or Soprano cross-over style are simply amazed they have not heard of her before and consider themselves now lucky they have. Sissel has the voice of an angel and her beauty, charm and grace make it easy to listen to her music many times over.

I love every song Sissel sings. Sissel has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard. It is the voice of an Angel. When Sissel sings Summer Snow and Seven Angels on this CD, she brings tears to my eyes with the sheer beauty, purity and emotion in her voice.
Need I say More.
