Singing star Aled Jones now releases brand new duet album called 'One Voice,' featuring the last ever recordings of him as a boy, which have never been heard before.
'One Voice' is a unique concept as Aled duets with himself – man and boy. The album of timeless folk songs features a stunning mix of musical styles, from the classical world of Handel, Purcell, Britten and Vaughan Williams to the flavours of Celtic Irish and Welsh folk music.
This special Australian edition of One Voice also includes a key moment from his only recording with legendary Australian soprano Dame Joan Sutherland - in Handel's glorious oratorio Athalia, which was recorded with Christopher Hogwood in 1986 - placing the greatest bel canto singer of her age alongside the world's most famous boy soprano.
Of One Voice, Aled says: "Listening back to the original recordings, it's the album that I'm most proud of doing as a boy, because I'm probably singing the best I ever did. It just seemed like the perfect idea to create the duet album. In many ways, it feels like I'm coming full circle and I can put the early part of my life to bed. To my knowledge, the concept for One Voice – the same person but with two different voices – is unique and no one else has ever done it before."
