FRIAR ALESSANDRO/Voice Of Joy: Christmas album coming October 29th, 2013!




Friar Alessandro has recorded an album of Christmas Carols and sacred arias, or as he describes it, an album of Joy. Since his first album was released in 2012, Alessandro has captured the hearts of people around the world with his beautiful voice and this album will now fill those hearts with Joy.

When recording Voice From Assisi, his first album, Friar Alessandro had never been on a plane before. Since then, he has now been on 18 flights throughout Europe. For this album, he travelled even further to Bethlehem , his first visit to the Holy Land, to record two of the tracks . Friar Alessandro performed Adeste Fideles (Oh Come Let Us Adore Him) in the place where Jesus was born. He also performed in the Shepherd’s Field where the Angel appeared to the Shepherds to tell them of the birth of Jesus. He could not believe he was there – it was magical, and the magic is captured in this new album. 

Featured on two of the tracks is the Coro Regina Coeli, the official chorus of the Metropolitan Cathedral, Buenos Aires. They were the official choir to Pope Francis when he was Archbishop in Argentina. They perform on Alto E Glorioso Dio with Alessandro, a beautiful prayer written by St. Francis. Voice of Joy is an album of beautiful music, sung by a beautiful voice belonging to a wonderful man. It is a celebration of Christmas - an album of Joy.
