Enchantment
Artist: Charlotte Church
Released: October 9, 2001
Label: Sony


Description:

Of course, we couldn't expect time to freeze its relentless path and forever preserve the Welsh sensation Charlotte Church in a chrysalis of precocious youth. And yet, at15 and now taking bolder steps into expanding her repertory on Enchantment, the sopranoremains a marvel of a prodigy. Here, she scours a wider range of sources than on herprevious albums. Church moves with breathtaking ease from classic Broadway (West Side Story, Show Boat, South Pacific) to traditional Celtic, film ballads, and even a couple of high-operatic numbers. Church's straightforward approach to the melody of "La Habanera" may not exactly be what Bizet had in mind for his Carmen, but fans will get double pleasure out of the singer's exquisite duet with herself on the haunting "Flower Duet" from Delibes's Lakmé. What's more, there's a greater freedom of expression and sense of how to shape a phrase in many of these tracks. It all adds up to a widely varied course, demonstrating the continued growth of a singularly gifted young artist. --Sarah Chin

“這是一張與過去截然不同的嶄新專輯,我試著加入許多不同的音樂元素,同時滿足樂迷的期待。”——夏綠蒂

創下專輯全球累計銷售近千萬的佳績,並以上一張作品「美夢天使」榮登2001"Billboard"告示牌10大暢銷女藝人的夏綠蒂,從英倫皇室一路到美國白宮的音樂會,合作對像從首席男高音多明哥,到流行新秀小比利,夏綠蒂累積了無數的演唱經驗,先天過人的細緻嗓音,加上後天不斷磨練的技巧,夏綠蒂的成就,已經超越了一個15歲小女孩應有的作為,但這只是一個起點,未來的夏綠蒂會到達怎樣的一個顛峰狀態,沒有人能預言。

在這張2001專輯中,你可以很明顯的感受到夏綠蒂的歌聲變了。一樣清靈悠美的天籟,多了較以往更豐富的聲音表情,曲風也更加自由奔放,即便是古典的曲目,也能綻放出令人驚豔的跨界風采。就像比才的經典歌劇:卡門中的名曲Habanera,熟悉的旋律,披上流行節奏的外衣,透出絲絲慵懶又火熱的拉丁神韻。而清新悠揚的居爾特民歌Carrickfergus則是一首不折不扣的跨界經典,更不用提唯美的The Water Is Wide,當夏綠蒂清亮的歌聲響起時,不需要音樂的襯托,聽來就覺得舒服極了,這首歌的旋律同時也是堂本剛與廣末涼子所主演的熱門日劇“夏之雪”的主題曲。還有Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man,是夏綠蒂首度嘗試帶有爵士風味的演出,舒緩有致的聽覺享受,讓人情不自禁的愛上它。專輯中的壓軸曲The Prayer,則是夏綠蒂與另一位新生代男高音喬許哥本(Josh Gorban)重新詮釋席琳狄翁與安德烈波伽利的跨界經典,在網壇名將阿格西今年所舉辦的慈善募款音樂會中,夏綠蒂亦演唱此曲而博得滿堂喝采,讓現場充滿希望與溫暖。
