IL Divo {Giveaway}




Carlos, David, Sébastien ,and Urs make up the IL Divo!! They are an international quartet of young male vocalists from America, France, Spain, and Switzerland that shares a similar genesis. Thanks to One2OneNetwork we received The Promise CD/DVD and The Christmas Collection CD to review :)



The Promise



The Promise CD/DVD proves that IL Divo are back refreshed, reinvigorated and ready to remind the world in 2008 just what they have been missing. Four of the greatest operatic voices in the world come together again to create their unique signature sound to re-interpret popular romantic songs. The Promise features 12 songs once again produced by Steve Mac (Il Divo, The Christmas Collection, Ancora, Siempre). The Promise is Il Divo's first release in two years. Il Divo have become an international sensation bringing the sound of opera to the world of popular music since their debut in 2002. Il Divo has sold over 22 million albums worldwide.






This was an enjoyable CD to listen to. It was soothing, calming, and peaceful. I love the song Amazing Grace, so that was a definite favorite of mine on this CD. It's a song I've always liked, and they really brought it to life for me. The music and melodies just seem to provide a relaxing atmosphere. This is a great CD to relax to or simply have on as nice background music.



They have amazing voices which makes it easy to listen to over and over and over again.


Track Listings:


1)The Power Of Love (La Fuerza Mayor)

2)La Promessa

3)Adagio

4)Hallelujah (Aleluya)

5)L'Alba Del Mondo

The Christmas Collection


This is a great addition to our Christmas Music Collection! Their voices create the most beautiful harmony. Each voice is distinct and unique but yet their voices blend together so beautifully.

About lL Divo:

ILDivo are back: refreshed, reinvigorated, and ready to remind the world just what we've been missing. The original and most popular operatic quartet return in November with their richest, most dynamic and diverse album, The Promise."People might be surprised by this album," suggests American tenor David Miller.


"Our goal was to approach it with fresh ears and fresh spirits, and try some different things. We've still got all the cannons and fireworks, but there is more range, different dynamics, more light and shade, more colour. It's a more complete album."


Something crucial happened to lL Divo in the process of making this record. Four singers from different countries and different musical disciplines discovered a new unity of purpose.


"We are more mature than when we started," according to Spanish baritone Carlos Marin.


"We are not in the mode of being four solo singers anymore. We are a group."


"We have gained a lot of trust in each other," elaborates Swiss tenor Urs Buhler.


"We realised that what's best for lL Divo is best for each of us, cause we are lL Divo. You can't separate one from the other." Or as French pop singer Sebastien Izambard puts it: "lL Divo became one."


lL Divo were initially brought together by pop impresario Simon Cowell in 2004, following an extensive worldwide audition process. The virtuoso blending of operatic technique with romantic and popular song took the world by storm, with sales of over 22 million. Their first three albums, 'lL Divo', 'Ancora' and 'Siempre' scored 36 number 1 chart positions across 26 countries. But success was hard earned.
