Overview

The first song Alfie Boe "The People's Tenor" ever performed on stage was "Bring Him Home," the showstopper from Les Miserables. Little did he know, at the age of 14, that this would form the title of his first album to be released on Decca records.

Alfie brings a hugely successful year to a close with the release of his new album -- his finest to date -- Bring Him Home. he delivers a wonderful selection of many of the greatest of all showtunes, from such Rodgers and Hammerstein evergreens as "Some Enchanted Evening" and "If I Loved You" through to more recent winners from Sunset Boulevard, Moulin Rouge, and, of course, Les Miserables.

The tenor is joined by a coule of distinctive voices for two mesmerising duets: West End star Kerry Ellis for a powerful performance of "Come What May" and none other than comedian Matt Lucas in the first duet version of "The Impossible Dream."

With Alfie Boe's ringing voice, the magic of the musical has never sounded more enchanting. From the Label

Alfie Boe continues to impress with every new recording. Though quite at home in opera (Baz Luhrmann's DVD of 'La Boheme' shows how fine a Rodolfo he can be), Boe brings great musical dignity to these theatrical gems. His selections range form Rogers and Hammerstein ('Some Enchanted Evening' beautifully transposed for tenor voice, 'If I Loved You') to the Bricusse/Newley 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' ('Pure Imagination') to the Wasserman/Darion/Leigh 'The Man of La Mancha', to Lerner/Lowe 'My Fair Lady' to Boubil/Schonberg 'Les Miserables' to Bricusse/Ornadel 'Pickwick' and more. Boe follows the lyric of each of these very much loved songs - his very tender 'Bring Him Home' reminds us of his impeccable performance of Jean Valjean on the anniversary recording of 'Les Miz', and he soars in 'On the street where you lived' and finds the nobility in 'The Impossible Dream'. Boe's voice is supple with an extensive range, but in the end it is the wedding of a beautiful voice with the instincts of an intelligent interpreter that makes this album such a delight. Grady Harp
