Customer Reviews

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!

Now I may possibly be ever so slightly bias on this but this album is amazing! The fifth album in katherine's discography and its better than ever! Quite a departure from previous albums, Katherine has produced a mix of covers and collaborative writing (Gary Barlow and Steve Mac) which works well. Particular favourites are 'Rejoice', 'I (Who Have Nothing)', 'Somewhere' (West Side Story), 'Kiss from a Rose' (Seal), 'I Will Pray for You' and 'Viva Tonight' ('Viva La Diva'). Buy this album you will not regret your purchase!

Rejoice - a superb album

Katherine's latest album is well named; we should rejoice after listening to this wonderful album. It is quite a change from the Katherine's previous albums; there's less traditional classics, but much more flowing music. It's difficult to pick a favourite song from this outstanding collection; the most upbeat is 'I Could Have Danced All Night', which is simply stunning, Other highlights for me include the songs 'Secret Love' and 'Requiem for a Soldier', both of which seem to be more reflective. Highly recommended.

Popular but not musically correct

Now, I do not usually state this when writing reviews, however I am so tired of the popular music marketing machinery flaunting young singers with no technical foundation that I am compelled to start by saying that I am a Doctor of Music, an opera singer and a vocal coach. I know, listeners whose ears have been painted over by the many so-called Divos, Divas, Tenors, etc. throwing together "classical" albums left, right, centre will not like reading this, but truth be told: Katherine Jenkins is not a proper soprano with a quality operatic voice, a proper vocal technique and an accomplished repertoire. A mezzo? Certainly not. Ms Jenkins simply imitates operatic singing technique and she unconsciously substitutes falsetto for the upper portion of her modal voice. That is, she does not use her voice as required by professional opera/choral singing. Her singing is so wrong at so many levels that arias written for accomplished opera singers sound like badly synthesized New-Age tunes of 80's. New listeners of operatic singing might find her 'heavenly', 'wonderful', etc. but for trained ears of accomplished classical music listeners and professional singers, she is unfortunately a very poor listening: Wrong breathing, extremely poor intonation, improper vocal resonation, completely mislaid tessitura (where the voice has the best timbre, easy volume, and most comfort), very poor articulation and interpretation. I was reduced to tears for all the wrong reasons, I am afraid. I have to say that her repertoire is hugely misguided and not suitable for her vocal range. She either attempts at singing arias written for accomplished vocal techniques or like in this album, songs written for male voice which has a completely different range and tessitura.

Biography

Born: 29 June 1980 in Neath, Wales

Genre: Classical

Years Active: '00s, '10s

While still in her mid-twenties, Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins emerged as Britain's all-time best-selling classical artist, although critics charged her success was more a result of physical beauty than musical talent. Born June 29, 1980, in Neath, West Glamorgan, Wales, Jenkins fell under the sway of classical music at age seven, studying piano and singing in her local choir throughout childhood. In 1990, she joined the Royal School of Church Music Cathedral Singers and also served with...
