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.
