Info for Voice Of Peace
Following his critically acclaimed albums Voice of Assisi and Voice of Joy, Friar Alessandro presents his beautiful new album Voice of Peace, with a universal message of spreading harmony throughout the world. Despite not being a professional singer, Friar Alessandro has a fantastic natural tenor voice and an unstoppable passion for music. The majority of his performances are singing for charity in churches and auditoriums.
This album includes songs in five languages; Latin, Italian, English, French and German, with famous melodies taken from popular and classical music repertoire, including a brand new text written by the Friar for Albinoni’s Adagio.
Also on the album are Santo Francesco, a song full of emotion, which has hardly ever been recorded before, and is linked to the Franciscan order to which the Friar belongs and Gounod’s Ave Maria, performed with Bach piano specialist Ramin Bahrami.
The recording took place in Vercell, accompanied by the orchestra Camerata Ducale, founded around 1300 to accompany the Holy Shroud when exposed to the public.
Alessandro Giacomo Brustenghi
was born in Perugia, Italy, in 1978. From his childhood he had a passion for music and this continued into his studies both at the Istituto Magistrale Musicale A. Pieralli, in his native city, and later at the Morlacchi music conservatory where he studied organ, musical composition and also operatic singing. Together with his passion for music he also was drawn to religious life and at the age of 21 he entered as a postulant in the Order of the Friars Minor of Umbria and would later take his final vows as a Franciscan friar some 10 years later. It was in fact the desire to join the Order which pushed him to complete his qualification at the musical conservatory as it was considered a touchstone for the seriousness of his commitment. At present he lives at the Porziuncola Friary in Santa Maria degli Angeli, Assisi, where he acts as a sanctuary guide, welcoming pilgrims to the Basilica there. He also animates the religious celebrations, playing the organ and singing with the choir or as a soloist.
