A very moving experience
6 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sacred Arias is not my favourite of Andrea Bocelli's concerts, that's still A Night in Tuscany for me, but it is still a moving experience. The church setting is simply magnificent, giving an elegant feel. The camera work is not as striking as Night in Tuscany, but still efficient. The sound is very good, while musically it is just a feast, with Ave Maria, Sancta Maria and Panis Angelicus enough to strike an emotional chord, and the orchestral playing sweeping and sensitive, the conducting both nuanced and commanding and the choir suitably angelic. Andrea Bocelli is yet another plus, yet again he is moving and passionate, and his beautiful, distinctive tone is still evident especially in Ave Maria. All in all, I recommend Sacred Arias highly, especially with the Special Edition. If you love Bocelli and want to be moved and engrossed, this one's a keeper. 10/10 Bethany Cox
