Vittorio Grigolo - Ave Maria
Release Date: October 22, 2013
Label: Sony Masterworks
Vittorio Grigolo’s album of sacred music includes favorites such as Franck's Panis angelicus, Verdi’s Ingemisco, Mozart's Ave verum corpus and both Schubert's and Caccini's Ave Maria. It also includes music composed specifically for the Sistine Chapel Choir that has never before been recorded or performed outside the ensemble. Also included: a new duet of "O Holy Night" with Jackie Evancho.
During his formative years Vittorio was a chorister with the legendary Sistine Chapel Choir in Rome. On this album, Vittorio is also joined by his friend and former fellow Sistine chorister Fabio Cerrone, conductor of the Orchestra Roma Sinfonietta, and he teams up once more with the current youngsters of the choir. "When I met the boys during the recording process, I felt for a moment as if I'd stepped back into my past," he says. "I feel Ave Maria is a tribute to all the incredible people who helped me as a boy, and to all the hours we studied and practiced in those little rooms in the chapel. This album is a dream come true for me."
