Vocal harmonies are irrefutably pleasing to the human ear. Throughout the history of music, harmonies have been utilised to lift choruses, to soothe, to soar and to spark every subtle spine-tingling moment that makes US all cling to songs emotionally and keep pressing replay. In 2014, Brit-Award winning classical crossover trio Blake are set to release their fifth album 'In Harmony', which showcases - amongst other things - their awe-inspiring proficiency with harmonies, all within the context of 14 brand new recordings. Re-interpreting compositions such as Chris Isaak's 'Wicked Game', Elvis Presley's 'Love Me Tender', Sting's 'Fields of Gold' and others, the album proves Blake's versatility, emotion and technical expertise, all traits of which have carried them through a career that's lasted seven years. Inspired by other harmonising legends such as the Three Tenors, the Bee Gees, the Lettermen and Boyz-II-Men, the trio - who are comprised of dapper gents Ollie Baines, Stephen Bowman and Humphrey Berney - have drawn a unique variety of songs from the juxtaposing worlds of classical and pop music for 'In Harmony', resulting in a musical experience like no other. Bringing together a number of distinguished names, the album features guest appearances from Camilla Kerslake, Rebecca Newman and Rachelle Ann Go.

When singing together in harmony, BLAKE’s classically trained young male voices produced a magical blend of softness and authoritativeness; and of easiness and solemnness. Just listen to their ‘Moon river’, ‘La Carliffa’, ‘Vide Cor Meum ‘, ‘Yo Te Voy a Amar’, ‘Titans’, and the like. This magic blend, to me, is where the unique beauty of BLAKE resides. I was absolutely thrilled by this beauty when I first listened to BLAKE. I am still feeling the sensation whenever I hear these songs now.
But this magic blend, interestingly, is so fragile – they don’t get it when they sing individually. Each of their individual voice, though can be soft or easy, does not produce the commanding thickness; It is also missing when they sing with a none-BLAKE singer. In fact, the female voices can only interrupt this blend. Such magic beauty is also absent in the ‘In harmony’. ‘In Harmony’ sounds rather a combination of softness, lightness and dreamingness. It’s new and can be nice, like ‘Wiched Game’, for example. And I understand, of course, the team members have changed. But does that mean the power of the magic beauty has gone forever?
what seems like ‘Forever’ !!! Which is my favorite song on album. ‘Forever’ starts off with a soft, smooth melody flowing gently….then the chorus comes in like a whirlwind! Their voices all singing as one … but are really layers upon layers of their beautiful voices dovetailing In Harmony.
You can hear and feel their heart, soul and passion in each song.
‘The Prayer’ with Rebecca Newman, ‘You Raise Me Up’ with Camilla Kerslake and ‘Falling Slowly’ with Rachelle Ann Go just adds another dimension to their singing talents.
This is an album, simply superb. I have not had it long, yet I will be listening to In Harmony ‘Forever’
I have bought several copies to “Share it Forward” and for singing gifts. There is a song for everyone on this album!
