Customer Reviews


Beginning with "Give Us This Day", a secular hymn so reverent and beautiful it is impossible to believe that this is the first new recording since Joni James introduced it in the 1950's, to the final track, a largely a cappella vocal of all 5 verses of the stirring hymn "Nearer My God to Thee", James Anest proves himself to be a singer of heavenly proportions, especially in his stunningly beautiful rendition of Robert Hurd's "Behold the Cross", which is arguably the greatest performance of this modern classic ever committed to the recording medium. Anest's operatic background allows him to scale to glorious vocal heights in the more classical pieces, such as the Aaron Copland arrangement of "At the River", the Bach-Gounod "Ave Maria" and a splendid new arrangement of the traditional "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child". And yet he shows great vocal flexibility in the more celebratory "Ven al Banquette" and even enters Elvis territory in the delightful "O How I Long to See", with its 1950's Rock `N' Roll organ sound. Not only are Bernadette Farrell's lovely "O God, You Search Me" and Robert Hurd's "As the Deer Longs" examples of great singing at its best but in the traditional "How Great Thou Art" Anest concludes with an explosive high note which upholds the initial impression that James Anest is an extraordinarily talented and versatile singer. The media bombards us so much proclaiming the modest talents of Harry Connick, Josh Groban and Michael Buble (who are certainly effective performers and deserving of their popularity) that one is awestruck when confronted with the real full-throated sound of a truly great singer who does not have to resort to falsetto and heavy miking to be heard but can fill a fairly large auditorium with glorious sound with no artificial enhancement. James Anest is such a vocalist, the kind of voice that the great songwriters of Tin Pan Alley and Broadway wrote their songs for and a voice that is badly needed for this music which is currently undergoing a renaissance. While "Calvary Street" is a winner one can only hope we hear more of James Anest in other musical genres as well.
