Bringing together a host of incredible classical and classical-crossovers, The Classical Album 2009 will inspire, delight and warm your heart. This two-CD album includes some of the biggest names of the genres, including the late Luciano Pavarotti, opera star Katherine Jenkins, New Zealand soprano Hayley Westenra, string quartet Bond and multi-instrumentalist Mike Oldfield. Stand-out tracks include an interpretation of rock band Queen's Who Wants to Live Forever by Jonathan Ansell, a member of classical 'boy band' G4; The Choir Boys' performance of Eric Clapton's Tears in Heaven; and Danny Boy sung by Bryn Terfel and Ronan Keating. Other highlights include Abide with Me performed by The Royal Scots Guards on bagpipes with an orchestral and piano accompaniment, and two pieces by The Salvation Army. The International Staff Band, the charity's premier brass band, performs Largo from Symphony No 9 in E Minor by Antonin Dvorak, also known as The New World Symphony, and regularly used in adverts. And the Salvation Army Choir sings a lesser known piece, Going Home. This is a great addition to any music shelf, with inspired interpretations that are perfect for chilling out to.
