-----...Lanza himself would surely have approved of the breadth of material that Noah has chosen to sing for his debut album for Decca, not least I'll Walk With God, which Lanza sang in the movie The Student Prince. The disc includes the unadulterated operatic arias Recondita armonia, from Puccini's Tosca, and Pourquoi me reveiller, from Massenet's Werther, as well as the enduringly popular Bach/Gounod version of Ave Maria.
But it casts its net much wider too. With inspirational input from producers and arrangers Steven Baker and Christian Seitz, it frames Noah's rich, resonant voice in the spiritual classic Deep River, and the traditional tunes Silent Night and Nearer My God To Thee.
When he was at high school, Noah gained some experience of the pop music industry when he sang backup for Mariah Carey at Madison Square Gardens and appeared on the David Letterman Show with rapper Coolio, so he had a feel for how to tackle pop standards like Abba's I Have a Dream, Nights In White Satin (with Italian lyrics) and Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah... http://www.decca.com/articles/noah-stewart-551
