BBC Young Chorister of the Year 2022 runner-up Luca Brugnoli presents this recital of music that is both familiar and unfamiliar. Brugnoli has a pure tone and his diction is good; pitching isn’t a problem, and phrasing is generally excellent. In a couple places he runs out of vocal support and struggles to get through to the end of a phrase, while at times the Hennessey Brown Music Collective can be a little overpowering. The arrangements made for this CD, some of which are duets with Alice Platten, include old favourites such as Franck’s Panis angelicus, Rutter’s The Lord bless you and keep you and Mozart’s Ave verum corpus, sitting alongside Joni Mitchell’s Both sides now, Gordon Sumner’s Fields of gold and Amanda McBroom’s The Rose. This young singer, whose voice hasn’t broken, is clearly at the start of a promising career; I look forward to following his progress.
