Yes, one year ago, I was enraptured by this beautiful album that I had only heard snippets from over the summer. Alfie Boe’s Serenata was something that I had been looking forward to hearing in it’s entirety since he first teased us with a few songs at James Morgan’s Parkinson’s UK fundraiser, SymFunny, back in June that year.
Looking back at the review, my initial favourite was Serenata Celeste which then changed to Feneste Vascia. I think I ended up with the new fans’s favourite song, Addio Sogni di Gloria by the end of the review whilst also saving a mention for Rondine al Nido amongst others. As always, I can never choose just one favourite song when it comes to Alfie. Now, regular readers will know that I usually don’t listen to Alfie singing when I’m blogging as there is always a danger that nothing will get written as he’s far too distracting! Nevertheless, I’m breaking the habit to listen as I blog now and…you guessed it, I’m having considerable difficulty choosing again! I think though, that I’ll go for a song that only appeared once on Alfie’s UK tour, Serenata Celeste:
