Aled Jones MBE, one of Australia’s favourite singers and presenters, returns this spring to complete the third and final instalment in his One Voice album trilogy. One Voice: Believe was released on Decca Records on 20 July.
A collection of spiritual classics, One Voice: Believe sees Aled duet in a duet with his younger self, combining his voices as tenor and as treble, along with a few special surprises. Highlights include Richard Mills’ An Australian Blessing, Handel’s Did You Not Hear My Lady?, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Pie Jesu, Franz Schubert’s Ave Maria and the traditional hymn Morning Has Broken. Once again, the album is produced by Ian Tilley.
As befitting to the finale in the series, the album features the life affirming Believe. Written by Aled himself, the soaring song is his first ever composition and is sure to become a fan favourite.
Also, for the very first time, the Songs of Praise presenter is joined by his 12-year-old son Lucas in a duet, singing one of Aled’s favourites hymns, The Lord is My Shepherd, composed by Howard Goodall. An incredibly tender and heartfelt rendition, the hymn reminds of us of the strength and belief that can be inspired through song.
Aled explains: “This is the final part of what has been an extraordinary journey. Over 30 years on from my first recording as a chorister in Bangor Cathedral, I have enjoyed reliving so many memories from my childhood over the last year and a half.”
