The Opera Band是来自英国的一个歌剧组合,成员为:英国的Nick Garrett、Jo Appleby、DavidHabbin,南非的Tsakane Valentien,新西兰的Geoff Sewell。

个人认为这是张相当不错的Crossover作品,无论你是要享受古典的隽永,还是要感受流行乐的迷恋之情,抑或是要体验歌剧里澎湃的热情,你都可以在他们的歌声中发现一个融合了这些类型音乐特质的美妙境界。在如今IL DIVO带起的Popera风潮中,我们不应该忽视这个团体。

Amici Forever is a British classical crossover group made up of five classically trained singers from around the globe (Britain, South Africa, and New Zealand). The two sopranos, two tenors and bass baritone blend together beautifully on the twelve tracks, which feature a blend of classical (Zadok the Priest, Whisper of Angels), opera (Nessun Dorma, Au fond du temple saint), pop (Unchained Melody, Canto Alla Vita), and soundtrack selections (the requiem from "Band of Brothers"). The music shifts between delicate orchestral backing (Nessun Dorma, Au fond du temple saint from Delibes' The Pearl Fishers) and dance/electronic elements (Prayer in the Night, based on Handel's Sarabande, with an insistent bass line and dance beats underscoring the melody).

The orchestration is brilliant, always supporting the voices but never overpowering. The songs are most often in Italian, although Latin and French make brief appearances as well. Kudos to Amici Forever for choosing lesser-recorded songs (Zadok the Priest, Au fond du temple saint, Handel's Sarabande) in addition to the heavies like Nessun Dorma and Faur's Pavane, and for experimenting with newer material with classical potential (Band of Brothers, Canto Alla Vita, Unchained Melody). The excellent production values and vocal purity brings to mind British soprano Izzy's American debut A New Dawn. My only gripe would be the omission of the beautiful Adeste Fidelis present on the British version of Opera Band (which also includes the classic mixes of Prayer in the Night and Whisper of Angels). Overall, I see nothing that could improve upon the tranquil beauty and sheer aural delight of Amici Forever. This album is perfect for daydreaming and relaxing to at the end of a stressful day.
