Album Review

This fifth international studio album from the Kiwi songbird is the follow-up to 2009's Winter Magic and is a collaboration with legendary composer Ennio Morricone. Produced, arranged, conducted, and co-written by the maestro, it sees Westenra lending her dulcet tones to some of the most famous songs from Morricone's 50-year film-scoring career as well as tracks especially written for the album, and providing her own lyrics to fit timeless instrumental pieces like "Gabriel's Oboe" from the film The Mission. ~ John D.

More than I expected

It seems as though Westenra's voice ages like a rare violin--growing richer and fuller over time. I generally prefer the tracks she sings in english, although the entire album has an exquisite beauty and introspective quality. Gabriel's Oboe is an english version of nella fantasia and is executed flawlessly. Malena is reminiscent of a Josh Groban track and is also an outstanding showcase of Hayley's vocals. My favorite track on this album is definitely Once upon a time in the west. It is complete ear candy. It has a sort of ethereal quality since there are no actual words sung; just the brilliance of Hayley's voice against the backdrop of a full orchestra. It forces you to consider the existence of a higher power in the universe, because Hayley's voice is not of this world.

Great CD

Hayley Westenra has done it again, and working with Ennio Morricone the Cd will be unstopable. Great Job I have it playing all the time.

Angels in love

Hayley has the most angelic voice on the planet . The first time i heard her i could not believe a human voice was capable of such beauty.Now everytime i hear something new from her it is like the first time i heard Pure.Her voice is the sound of Pure love.
