Title - 'Voice Of Peace'
Artist - Friar Alessandro

When you meet Friar Alessandro Brustenghi you realise straight away there is something beatific, possibly angelic about him. Slight and sweet in his brown Friarís garb. Okay, I admit, I've never actually met him, but listening to Voice of Peace I kinda feel like I just have - spiritually, at the very least.

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.

It has to be pointed out, that despite not being a professional singer, Friar Alessandro has a fantastic natural tenor voice (although I'm sure the recording studio also has a hand in certain elevations, of course) and an unstoppable passion for music. The majority of his performances are singing for charity in churches and auditoriums.

Voice of Peace 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."

As with his previous two releases, ALL his proceeds go to his brotherhood; he gets nothing for himself. It is truly amazing what a humble and true "star" (in and of life) Friar Alessandro really is.

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. If you have never heard of Friar Alessandro, I beg of you today, please do ... and soon.
