Overview

For her sophomore effort on Decca, Welsh operatic star Katherine Jenkins found inspiration in the music of her childhood in the valleys of South Wales. The result, Sacred Arias, is an intensely moving and heartfelt collection of pieces with a broadly spiritual theme, ranging from her favorite hymn “Abide With Me” to Leonard Cohen’s magnificent anthem, “Hallelujah”.

“This is definitely my going back to the beginning,” says the 28-year-old singer from Neath. “I was in my local church choir for ten years before I came to London. The music we sang was a very big part of my life, and it still is. These are some of the most beautiful pieces of music I know, and to sing them is an enormously emotional experience for me.” From the Label
