Overview

Sarah Brightman, like Andrea Bocelli (who makes a cameo appearance on this CD), is equally at home in classical and popular music. "The Angel of Music," as she's called by her fans, made her name starring in the musicals of her former husband, Andrew Lloyd-Webber. But she's also sung operetta and shared the stage with such operatic luminaries as Plácido Domingo. This chart-busting recording shows both sides of Brightman's personality, including sweet pop songs, like the title track (a duet with Bocelli that became a runaway hit), as well as classical selections, such as the bright "Alleluja" (from Mozart's "Exsultate, jubilate") the ethereal "In Trutina" (from Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana"), and the dulcet "O mio babbino caro" (from Puccini's "Gianni Schicchi").

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Sarah Brightman, who enjoyed a European hit with "Time to Say Goodbye," her duet with Andrea Bocelli, constructed an album beginning with that recording and continuing in kind. The characteristics of the hit -- a lush, melodramatic, mock-operatic arrangement complete with a crescendo out of Ravel's "Bolero" and soaring voices singing in English and Italian -- are repeated here, whether the material is drawn from Puccini, the Gipsy Kings, or Queen.
