Charlotte Church - 'Voice of an Angel' - CD
What a glorious CD collection of 58 minutes of singing by Charlotte Church. And, for singing or following along, the brochure in the case contains the words to all selections.
Ms. Church begins with Pie Jesu from Requiem by Andrew Lloyd Webber; continuing into Panis Angelicus by César Franck; In Trutina from Carmina Burana by Carl Orff; and The Lord's Prayer by Albert Hay Malotte. Then, Jerusalem by C. Hubert H. Parry; Ave Maria by Giulio Caccini; Psalm 23 by Colin Mawby.
On to the more secular selections of I Vow to Thee My Country by Gustav Holst and Danny Boy from the old Irish air by Harold Samuel. Then, 2 traditionals – My Lagan Love, and Suo-Gân. Followed by A Lullaby by Hamilton Harty; the traditional Amazing Grace; and Three Welsh Bird Songs by Dilys Elwyn-Edwards.
Ms. Church concludes this cd with Y Gylfinir from the Curfew; Tylluanod from Owls; Mae Hiraeth yn y Môr from There's Longing in the Sea; and lastly, When at Night I Go to Sleep from Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck.
What a glorious way to do a deep relaxation meditation when the stress of holiday or anytime busy-ness tires you. To begin, lie on your back, put your CD on and start even breathing such as breathe in counts 1, 2; breathe out counts 1, 2; breathe in counts 1, 2 and continue the rhythm, but let go of the counting and relax into the sounds of the music.
I highly recommend this quality recording of truly beautiful 'angelic' singing!
