Renee Fleming: Sacred Songs on DVD
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


On Sunday, 13 November 2005, the renowned American soprano, Renee Fleming, performed a selection of the world's best-loved sacred songs and arias in front of a packed audience in Mainz's beautiful Romanesque Cathedral. Accompanying her were the Cathedral's choir and the celebrated Deustche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, under the lively direction of Trevor Pinnock. The concert was inspired by the success of Renee Fleming's Sacred Songs CD, and was staged by ZDF and PBS (USA), for broadcast this Christmas and Christmas 2006.

In addition to performings arias and songs from her album, Renee also gives special bonus performances of two Christmas favourites: The Holly and the Ivy from the atmospheric Cathedral cloisters, and Silent Night in front of the traditional crib in Mainz town square.

The disc features both CD-quality stereo and a DTS 5.1 surround sound, as well as many extra items, including Renee's promo video of Schubert's Ave Maria, photo galleries of both Renee and Mainz Cathedral and City, as well as trailers and the Decca/Philips DVD showreel.
