You Raise Me Up
INSPIRATION. roses, autumn leaves, a carnival in Venice, a night of stars. these are the ingredients for Andre Rieu's newest CD. It's a bouquet of simply gorgeous, lush melodies, many of them recorded for the first time by Andr Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra. Out of complete silence emerges the sound of a solo violin and the album opens with the true No.1 song of this century - the most covered song in the last ten years - "You Raise Me Up". The album features soprano soloists Australian-born Mirusia Louwerse and Brazilian-born Carmen Monarcha, who make the recording debut as duetists for Send in the clowns. And of course, the delightful Platin Tenors who sing the Chianti Song and the 'mum' song of songs, Mamma.
