Product Description

Decca Records/Universal Music announces the global signing of Franciscan Friar, Alessandro Brustenghi, from the original friary founded by Saint Francis of Assisi: the Porziuncola in Assisi. Alessandro is the first Friar in the history of music to land a major record deal.

Having taken a personal vow of poverty, Friar Alessandro will not accept any money from sales of the album and his day to day life will not change. Proceeds will go directly to Friar Alessandros religious order. Although music was always his passion, Alessandro received his calling as a teenager, and at the age of 21 he decided to become a friar.

The legendary Mike Hedges (U2, The Cure, Manic Street Preachers) and his manager discovered Alessandro whilst in Italy, after years of searching for The Next Italian Tenor. Much like new TV hit The Voice it was only when they met Alessandro in person, dressed in his habit, that they realized the singer recommended to them was a friar.
Mike Hedges is making the record at Abbey Road. When Friar Alessandro recently visited the famous studios it was the first time he had ever been on a plane. The album, which is due for release in October, will be a mix of traditional and modern sacred songs, including an original track by Royal Wedding composer Paul Mealor, set to a prayer written by St Francis of Assisi.

The Friar, by day, works in the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, welcoming many of the six million visitors to Assisi every year. In his spare time he works as a carpenter, restoring furniture and making wooden lecterns. Alessandro grew up listening to Michael Jackson and Bach, loves electronic music, and his latest musical interest is Bjork.

Product Description

Following his critically acclaimed albums Voice of Assisi and Voice of Joy, Friar Alessandro presents his beautiful new album Voice of Peace, with a universal message of spreading harmony throughout the world.

Despite not being a professional singer, Friar Alessandro has a fantastic natural tenor voice and an unstoppable passion for music. The majority of his performances are singing for charity in churches and auditoriums.

This album includes songs in five languages; Latin, Italian, English, French and German, with famous melodies taken from popular and classical music repertoire, including a brand new text written by the Friar for Albinoni s Adagio.

Also on the album are Santo Francesco, a song full of emotion, which has hardly ever been recorded before, and is linked to the Franciscan order to which the Friar belongs and Gounod s Ave Maria, performed with Bach piano specialist Ramin Bahrami.

Two popular church songs Resta con noi Signore, la sera (Stay with us, Lord) and Here I am, Lord are tracks that have been sung by millions of people over the past forty years.

The recording took place in Vercell, accompanied by the orchestra Camerata Ducale, founded around 1300 to accompany the Holy Shroud when exposed to the public.

Product Description

Friar Alessandro has recorded an album of Christmas Carols and sacred arias, or as he describes it, an album of Joy. Since his first album was released in 2012, Alessandro has captured the hearts of people around the world with his beautiful voice and this album will now fill those hearts with Joy.

When recording Voice From Assisi, his first album, Alessandro had never been on a plane before. Since then he has now been on 18 flights, throughout Europe. For this album he traveled even further, to Bethlehem to record two of the tracks his first visit to the Holy Land. Alessandro performed Adeste Fideles (Oh Come Let Us Adore Him) in the place where Jesus was born and he performed in the Shepherds Field where the Angel appeared to tell them of the birth of Jesus. He could not believe he was there it was magical, and the magic is captured in this new album.

Also featured on two of the tracks is the official chorus of the Metropolitan Cathedral, Buenos Aires Coro Regina Coeli. They are the official choir to Pope Francis, when he was Archbishop in Argentina. They perform on Alto E Glorioso Dio with Alessandro, a beautiful prayer written by St. Francis.

Voice of Joy is an album of beautiful music, a beautiful voice from a wonderful man, a celebration of Christmas - an album of Joy.
