If you’ve never heard of Friar Alessandro, hold onto your socks
There are so many good things in this video, we’re not sure where to start. The scenes of Friar Alessandro singing in monastic rooms or in front of gorgeous landscapes is breathtaking and comforting. The orchestration is intricate and full with a Romantic 19th-century styling. Most impressive of all are Friar Alessandro’s dominant performance and his easy smile.
With such obvious talent, it’s easy to see why Friar Alessandro has become the first religious brother to land an international record contract. We couldn’t be more relieved, since hiding a voice like this in a friary would seem almost sinful. We can’t wait to hear more from Friar Alessandro.
