Aled Jones and Russell Watson, two of the world’s greatest classical voices, come together to release their debut album In Harmony,which they will be taking on the road for their first ever joint UK and Ireland tour. The album features a wealth of well-loved hymns, arias, and popular songs – ranging from stunning arrangements of Ave Maria – to more modern classics such as You Raise Me Up.

In Harmony is the end product from two artists born with a predestined compatibility. Here, both Aled and Russell have embraced the spirit of collaboration and friendship, whilst each bringing their own sky-high level of talent to the table to create this beautiful record.

Of the album, Russell says, What I particularly like is the way that it is not just a collaboration as such where I sing a verse, Aled sings a verse and everybody joins in on the chorus. It’s been really cleverly written and arranged so that our voices blend really well.”

Aled adds, “This album has created a real excitement for me – singing songs I don’t normally perform on my own. Recording ‘Volare’ with Russell was a hoot!”

Their instinctive understanding of one another is easy to hear. From the grandiose Volare a creative rendition of Dean Martin’s jazzy number, to closer Silent Night, the album’s heartfelt closer combining ethereal tones of the flute with the rich baritone vocals of Aled and tenor vocals of Russell – the pair’s natural chemistry exudes throughout.

In Harmony is a testament to the popularity and talent of the UK’s finest classical voices, featuring a cherry-picked repertoire of personal favourites.
