Amore Infinito is the new album by Plácido Domingo, who calls it one of the most important recordings of his career. Before Karol Wojtyla became Pope John Paul II, he began writing poetry during years as a quarry worker, playwright, actor, seminary student and priest. Now Domingo, out of deep respect and reverence for "the greatest human being I have ever known," has created this collection of settings as a personal affirmation of faith and tribute to the late Polish pontiff. ALSO AVAILABLE a limited edition, numbered hard bound version of Amore Infinito--a hardcover "book"--5 1/4" wide by 7 1/4" high and 1/2" thick. The special package will include the CD plus color photos of not only the artists on the CD, but also include some very touching and poetic photos of the late Pope John Paul II.

Songs inspired by the Infinite Love (Amor Eterno) and poetry

"This beautiful album presents the poetry of John Paul interpreted by great tenor Placido Domingo and the London Symphony Orchestra in music and voice. These songs bring back the memory of the late Polish pontiff and his Infinite Love (Amor Eterno) for God and the world. The songs centered on the world of manual labor, young love, war, nature and family relations inspired by the Infinite Love (Amor Eterno) of God. Some of the songs are presented in Italian while other in Spanish and English. Some of the songs provide collaborations with great musicians such as Placido Domingo Jr (Love), Josh Groban (La Tua Semplicita), Andrea Bocelli (Canto del Sole Inesauribile), Vanessa Williams (Gratitude), Katherine Jenkins(A Mother's Wonderment). All of them did a wonderful job along with Placido Domingo and the London Symphony Orchestra. A beautiful album performed with a lot of respect for the poetry of our be loved pope.

"The album's title may be a bit off-putting if one is not a Catholic or not particularly interested in the concept of poetry set to music - believe me, don't let any preconceived notions keep you from getting this CD. Having just purchased it three days ago, I think I've listened to it roughly eight times thus far. The music is excellent and the voices are stellar; Domingo is in fantastic voice throughout and he teams up with five other artists in selected songs, one of whom being his own son (a fine singer in his own right). His duets with Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli are soaring, gorgeous blendings of some of the best tenor voices in current music today, sure to lift one's soul to the heavens. An excellent album with an operatic flavor and a musical experience not to be missed."
THE BEST OF BOTH !

"I have long been an ardent admirer of both His Holiness the late POPE JOHN PAUL II, and the very much alive operatic tenor/baritone MR. PLACIDO DOMINGO.
So the pairing of the POPE's poetry and MR. DOMINGO's great voice could only be a wonderful experience... and one is not disappointed!
The words of KAROL WOJTYLA, the man who became POPE, bespeak Universal Love, Faith, the Brotherhood of Mankind, and Hope for the World and our Future.
The POPE's words are given a life beyond the written page by the profound arias of MR. DOMINGO.
But my words alone cannot do this justice... you must HEAR this work to really appreciate it.
