Carpenters With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (Carpenters) based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I am not a musicologist - just a lover of beautiful music, so when I read in my local newspaper about Richard Carpenter's new production, Carpenters with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, I knew I had to order it, and I'm so happy that I did. Since I remember well the sad day the world learned that Karen Carpenter had passed away, hearing her incredible voice singing Yesterday Once More on Track Two brought tears to my eyes. I've always believed that she touched countless lives with her once-in-a-lifetime voice, and I like to think that, if alive today, she would still be singing in her clear and unmistakable way. Absent that, I believe Richard Carpenter, such a supreme talent in his own right, has done the next best thing with this new production. If you remember The Carpenters, this collection is a great walk down Memory Lane. If you're too young to recall the wonderful music they made together, I urge you to purchase this CD and treat yourself to the magic of Karen Carpenter's voice and Richard Carpenter's musical skill and wizardry.
