DREAM A DREAM
每年各式各样的圣诞专辑都少不了传统宗教歌曲和那些流传已久的老歌，这些作品在经过和声和管弦乐队演绎后更显得典雅富丽、令人心醉。及古典与通俗于一身的索尼古典（SONY CLASSICS）唱片公司一贯保持很高的艺术水准，在今年圣诞节，他们推出了多张重量级唱片，且不说由三大男高音合力推出的去年在维也纳的圣诞现场音乐会专辑，单是这张《Dream A Dream 梦境漫游》便得到了乐评人及歌迷们的一致好评。
相信发烧友们还没有忘记两年前引起轰动的那张天碟《Voice of an Angel 天使之声/天使的声音》，Charlotte Church 夏绿蒂 那美妙的和声曾使乐友们享受到一次天使的歌唱，她被称为少年英国女高音。这次 Charlotte Church 夏绿蒂 又将圣诞歌曲重新演唱，推出了这张全新专辑《Dream A Dream 梦境漫游》，由 Sian Edwards 指挥伦敦交响乐团（London Symphony orchestra）演奏。在《Winter Wonderland》、《Little Drummer Boy》这些老歌中，Charlotte Church 夏绿蒂 极富感染力的演唱会安抚那些忧郁的心灵。优美的和声在管弦乐队的伴奏下表现出庄严的美感，分外动人。平安夜里听一首 Charlotte Church 夏绿蒂 演唱的《Ave Maria 万福玛丽亚》，相信会给你带来好梦。
1998年英国出现了这位当时年仅12岁，史上年纪最轻，横跨流行与古典榜的天才歌手 Charlotte Church 夏绿蒂！Charlotte Church 夏绿蒂 的歌声天真而充满自信，她拥有和所有成熟女高音一样的发音技巧，却绝对只唱她自己有感觉的音乐，她的声音来自她体内一处与感情共鸣的底层，那是只有神童才能触及的领域。
Dream a Dream: Charlotte Church in the Holy Land
本片内容是夏绿蒂在圣城耶路撒冷的演唱会实况。她带来了多首最膾炙人口，也最令人回味无穷的经典圣诞歌曲。专辑主打之压轴单曲「Dream a Dream梦境漫游」，撷取了著名的「Pavane巴望舞曲」精华片段，搭配甜美无瑕的歌声，肯定是本世纪最”青”的演唱盛事。
透过这张DVD影音典藏版，你可以身历其境般体验夏绿蒂的美声电波，更可以一次听到那么多迷人动听的歌曲，每一首都是如此悦耳，如此耐人寻味，但在夏绿蒂甜美天真的嗓音詮释之下，却又显得那么清新可人。而DVD版本更加收CD所没有收录的BONUS曲目「Psalm 23 贙美诗」，如此珍贵的压轴之作，即将为您点燃这银色季节中的满室温馨。

After an unprecedented two platinum albums in her debut year (Voice of an Angel and Charlotte Church), Charlotte is ready to celebrate the season with Dream A Dream, a collection of traditional Christmas carols and holiday favorites. The title track "Dream A Dream", a stunningly beautiful original song sure to become a classic, is a duet with Charlotte and country music's newest singing sensation, Billy Gilman, whose debut album went gold in four weeks. With a special cover portrait painted by Charolotte's friend Amanda Dunbar, the most successful commercial artist in the U.S., Dream A Dream is destined to become a holiday favorite and a must-have on everyone's Christmas list
The little girl with the big voice is back for a selection of popular Christmas songs and carols, ranging from the medieval "Coventry Carol" to the brand new title track, whose chorus will be recognized by classical music fans as the "Pavan" of Gabriel Faure. In between are pop standards like "Winter Wonderland" and Mel Torme's "Christmas Song" as well as some less familiar fare such as the delicate calypso "Mary's Boy Child" and the Welsh "Draw Tua Bethlehem". Much of the program features big, lush orechestral arrangements with Church's voice at full throttle, but several tracks deliver less most effectively, such as the lovely, simple choral accompaniment to Michael Praetorius' "Lo How a Rose E'er Blooming" or the opening verse of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," sung solo with no instruments at all.
Recorded at Blackheath Concert Halls and Air Studios, London, England.

A World Class Performance, Charlotte at her best!!

When one thinks of Charlotte Church one also thinks of the opening lyrics to the ancient and much revered Greensleeves,--"What Child is This?" Who is this young lady? Simply put, Ms Church is the finest teenage soprano in the world and Greensleeves (What Child is This?) is one of the songs included on her latest album, "Dream a Dream", released on October 21, 2000 by Sony Classical and soon to be certified Gold perhaps breaking all previous sales records. "Dream a Dream" is the astonishing follow up to her previous two albums "Voice of an Angel" now certified double Platinum by Sony Classical and the self titled Gold album "Charlotte Church." Truly, the sweetest teenage voice on the planet, it's difficult to believe this young lady is only fourteen.
Ms Church continues her tradition for excellence with this latest release. More than just another Christmas album, "Dream a Dream" is a mixture of the ancient and new, spiritual and contemporary, Pop and traditional. Ms Church's crystalline pure voice accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra carries one to heavenly heights with the greatest of ease. It's real delight to listen to this latest work by Ms Church and it will be one I'll be listening to long after the passing of the Season of Christ.
My favorite's on the album include these moments: Rhodri Davies' harp accompaniment on the beautiful Ave Maria is one of the finest ever heard, this pairing of harp and voice is nothing short of one of the finest moments in music history. Charlotte's "child like voice" in O Tannenbaum conjures forth images of Christmas settled and celebrated around the Christmas Tree by millions of children around the world. The only all a cappella song on the album is "Lo! How A Rose E'er Blooming". Dating from the late 1500's it is the most regal of all the spiritual songs on the album. Dream a Dream is Ms Church's first step into the season of Pop and is superlatively performed. What else are we going to see from this very versatile young lady in the way of Pop? The full orchestral backup of "O Come, All Ye Faithful" truly expresses the spirit of the season. "Draw Tua Bethlehem", a Welsh hymn of praise, is expertly carried by Ms Church in Welsh and English and sets one on a journey of hope.
Not only does this album express the measure of the season but it gives us an insight into the sophistication of voice and value of this very beautiful young lady. The album is beyond the land, lore and love of Charlotte's Welsh citizenship, it speaks to millions throughout the world of all languages and cultures.
