Following the Romanian Christmas carols CD released in 2013, Angela Gheorghiu releases “Guardian Angel”, an international Christmas carols CD recorded with The Romanian National Radio Orchestra conducted by Tiberiu Soare.
“I’m overjoyed to announce the release of the international Christmas carols CD, songs I love as much as the Romanian carols. It was my utmost wish to have all the carols arranged for my voice. I called on very talented Romanian and foreign musicians to work on the songs: Steven Mercurio, Julien Painot and Andrei Tudor. The result is exceptional.
In the eclectic repertory you will discover carols sung in English, French, German and even Russian. They are songs from everywhere, I wanted to synthesize the beauty of this music so popular worldwide.
It was my wish to record a duet with my daughter, Ioana Dan, because I have always had this longing of being close to my dear ones. It took me a while to persuade her, she finally accepted and I’m very happy. This carol, It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, is genuinely emotional. “
