Notes & Reviews:

Special 2008 Edition Two CD set of the Ten Tenor's 2006 album Here's To The Heroes. The Ten Tenors are an Australian musical ensemble, with a strong live touring profile in Europe, Canada and the US with a burgeoning recording career. The group performs a diverse repertoire in concert and on their albums; performing Queen standards, including "Bicycle Race", "Bohemian Rhapsody", and "Who Wants to Live Forever", a Bee Gees medley, and ABBA's "Dancing Queen", and switch gears mid-set performing opera tunes and native Australian tunes (including Men at Work). Their album Here's to the Heroes is heavily influenced by the music of John Barry.

Lyricist Don Black and composer John Barry, together and apart, have a vast award-winning film-score CV, most notably several James Bond films and BORN FREE. The playful Australian pop-opera group The Ten Tenors take a whack at this most vaunted repertoire, to stunning effect. Recorded with the London Session Orchestra at Abbey Road Studio (under the direction of Nicholas Dodd) and produced by John Barry himself, the Tens cover 12 Barry/Black songs, including several James Bond numbers, the theme from GLADIATOR, and three never-before-released compositions.

Includes italian medley: mattinata / santa lucia / volare ( by various composers.
