Aled Jones – One Voice: Believe CD
One of the UK’s most popular singers and presenters, Aled Jones MBE returns this autumn to complete what has been an extraordinary journey, with the final instalment in his One Voice album trilogy, One Voice: Believe.
A collection of spiritual classics, One Voice: Believe sees Aled duet with his younger self – man and boy – and features a few special surprises. Highlights include stunning renditions of Pie Jesu (Lloyd Webber), Ave Maria (Schubert), Did You Not Hear My Lady(Handel), and Morning Has Broken (traditional).
The album also features the life-affirming Believe, a composition written by Aled himself. You’ll also hear a very special guest appearance from someone very near and dear to Aled: his 12-year-old son Lucas performs on one track with his father. This unique father son collaboration is sure to warm hearts.
Furthermore, there are three never-heard-before bonus tracks on the album. These tracks reveal the first-ever recordings of Aled’s voice as a 10-year-old – long before his first professional record deal. An old friend from Bangor Cathedral, Brian Saunderson, recorded Aled during his school days, but the original tape lay on Brian’s bookshelf for over 30 years. A few months back these recordings were presented to Aled, and now he is sharing these innocent yet raw vocals with the world.
These tracks – How Beautiful Are the Feet, Pie Jesu (Faure) and Y Lili Ddwr (the Welsh version of The Lotus Flower by Schumann) – can now be heard for the very first time and are sure to take your breath away.
