An Old Favorite Sings a Favorite

While looking for a good rendition of the theme song to Dawn French's "The Vicar of Dibley" ("The Lord is My Shepherd"), I came across one sung by an old favorite baritone. One song led to the entire album, and what a surprise to find the baritone-counterpart to Renée Fleming's "Shenandoah" (she sang it as part of the River Songs: the Water is Wide/Shenandoah in Dave Grusin/Lee Ritenour's Two Worlds). The album is comprised of arias, old Irish folk and American songs. It appeals to a wider audience as it combines classical music, folk songs, spiritual songs (the standard, old faithful "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot"), religious songs ("Abide with Me") and contemporary flavors such as the Italianization of the theme song to "Titanic." Crossover is not new: other baritones had done it, but some are more successful than others. To me, Terfel's voice seems to lend itself well to any genre; Mercer/Charmichael's "Lazybones" is a wonderful acoustic treat. A duet with Andrea Bocelli juxtaposes the two voices and exposes Bryn as the better singer, but perhaps I am comparing apples to oranges.
