Notes & Reviews:

Just a few years back Katherine Jenkins was a public school music teacher in Wales. Today, she is the UK's fastest-rising classical star. Ever since she shattered a glass chandelier with a high note during a concert, Katherine has taken the classical world by storm, winning several singing competitions at the Royal Academy of Music. Her debut album 'Premiere went straight to number one in the U.K in April 2004 and stayed there for eight weeks.

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Katherine Jenkins (mezzo soprano); Steven Baker (piano, organ, keyboards, programming); Simon Franglen (keyboards, programming); Gary Kettel (percussion).

Recording information: Air Studios, London; City Road Studios, Newcastle, Engl.

In the tradition of Charlotte Church and Sarah Brightman, Katherine Jenkins is a classically trained singer moving into a somewhat more pop-oriented direction complete with a glamorous persona that emphasizes her striking looks. SACRED ARIAS, true to its name, consists solely of classical religious music and familiar hymns such as "Abide With Me" and "Ave Maria," performed with great delicacy and skill.
