Sarah Brightman- Time to Say Goodbye (CD-Album- 1997)
Genre: Vocal | Album | FLAC 320MB + Sample
September 1997| Publisher: Angel | Language: English - Italian - French - Latin| RapidShare

This, of course, is the album on which the international smash hit “Time to Say Goodbye” feels most at home. This platinum breakthrough topped the Billboard Classical Crossover chart in the U.S. for a staggering 35 weeks, sold three million copies worldwide and went gold or platinum in 21 countries.

Recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra, this album takes on a decidedly more classical feel. It was released in Europe by East-West as Timeless, and in the US as Time To say Goodbye on Angel Records (EMI’s classical label).

The album includes multiple operatic arias as well as two passionate duets with the famous tenor, Jose Cura. It also features live performances of Mozart’s “Alleluja” and “O Mio Babbino Caro” (first recorded by Sarah as the B-side to the “Theme from a Room with a View” single in 1987).

Timeless/Time to Say Goodbye does not comprise solely of classical material. Some of the more notable tracks are, in fact, covers of rock, folk and pop songs.

Sarah’s gorgeous interpretation of “Tu Quieres Volver” stands in stark contrast to the Gipsy Kings’ original version and showcases her remarkable range as she climbs unexpectedly to a spine-tingling B-flat above high C (almost 3 octaves above middle-C!).

Other covers include her soothing interpretation of Queen’s “Who Wants to Live Forever” and Mecano’s “Naturaleza Muerta,” the perfect vehicle for Sarah’s touchingly crystalline voice.

***********************************
Fans of small, pretty-voiced soprano Sarah Brightman will not be disappointed by this CD. In addition to some pop songs, Brightman sings high-flying excerpts from Orff's Carmina Burana, Puccini's "O mio babbino caro", and "Alleluia" from Mozart's Exsultate Jubilate. One might call this a crossover disc; others might just see it as a recording featuring a pop singer with artsy aspirations. Whatever it is, Brightman's fans love her; others do not. Two duets with tenor Jose Cura remind the listener what opera singing really ought to sound like. –Robert Levine
