You too will be a classical music fan


My daughter is an avid fan of Russell Watson and when he was in our area last year, she convinced her sister and me to go to his concert with her. I'm 62 years old, and let me tell you, I've never enjoyed a personality as much as I did Russell Watson! He is a terrific performer and singer, his "classical" show appeals to all age groups, which is surprising.
I Could not wait to get a copy of the CD, Encore. What versatility this man has! I enjoyed every song, and have copies in my van, at my workplace, and have since hearing it, purchased anything I could find of Mr. Russell's. I highly recommend this CD for the "voice", the arrangements, the fun and the heartfelt music. In MY opinion, Russell Watson has just found his niche, and will become the Pavarotti of our era

The Best!


This is one of the better "soundtracks" of some childlike movie. "Anastasia" is the best movie of princesses that are in the market. That suffers that Disney does not find fact this movie, because asi would be more famous.

Charlotte Church


As an independent record label exec, I try and listen to everything that the majors send over to me. However after hearing bites from 8 or 9 selected pieces from this CD, I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry. It was sad that some of the best songs this country has ever produced were given such an incredibly amateurish treatment. I don't believe Miss Church will ever have the necessary vocal attributes to even think about singing these classics. I laugh when I think that Keith Thomas who has produced some of Columbia's best albums (including Barbra Streisand) would accept a Mission-Impossible assignment of trying to make Church sound acceptable with 4 of Streisand's hits. However money talks and the fact that he did take that assignment gives me renewed faith in the strength of our good old American Dollar. Anyway, Miss Church lacks the volume, range, control, and emotion to even consider doing justice to any of the songs on this CD with the exception of Carrick Fergus, an Irish ballad, where she is marginally acceptable.

Brits Have Done It Again


This CD is a must have for anyone who appreciates the classical genre. Their rendition of Handel's Zadok The Priest (Track 11) is among the best I have heard. Little wonder that this song has been performed during the coronation every British monarch since the early 1700s. Simply amazing! Requiem for a Soldier, theme song from Band of Brothers, (Track 5) and Whisper of Angels (Track 6) may well, if you listen with your heart, move you to tears.
