Celebrated vocal quartet Il Divo have released their sixth studio album ‘Wicked Game’. The two personal highlights of this record are without doubt the covers of two of my favourite movie soundtracks: Come What May from Moulin Rouge (which has been reincarnated in Italian as Te Amare) and Don’t Cry For Me Argentina from Evita. These two majestic songs take on an even grander lustre with Il Divo’s incredible vocals and magnificent orchestral arrangement. Have a listen:
Come What May (Te Amare)
Don’t Cry For Me Argentina
These two songs are a perfect fit for Il Divo, as they are very theatrical in nature and their arrangement lend themselves most wonderfully for grandiose production such as this. Unfortunately, the rest of the album is nothing to write home about.
