The other night Virginia blasted her Andrea Bocelli playlist in the kitchen while making an Italian extravaganza pasta casserole (a major production, like lasagna.) Methinks Andrea’s incredible voice and music somehow made the food taste better. (At the very least, the cook felt inspired!)
The tomato sauce preparation and casserole assembly kept getting interrupted when Virginia kept hitting replay for the song, “Gloria The Gift of Life” from Andrea Bocelli’s recent “Si” compilation.
Here’s a YouTube version to have a listen. (Email readers you know the drill. Click to the Roses website to have a go at it.)
“For the gift of life, for the air we breathe, for the tears we cry… I raise my voice to sing: GLORIA, GLORIA, GLORIA, GLORIA!!!!”
“Saint Augustine said that ‘he who sings prays twice.’ It is my hope that the music on this album will offer listeners the good company of a good tune to follow, but also that it may be a chance to pray together. Good music can teach us about beauty and fellowship, and can open up our hearts and minds to higher thoughts.” Andrea Bocelli (liner notes, ‘Si’)
grace, peace & glorious songs
Virginia : )
You’ve got to hand it to him Virginia, the guy’s got a superb singing voice.
Italian extravaganza pasta casserole – ‘Casseruola di pasta italiana stravagante’ (Google translate) – has a fabulous ring to it, don’t you think? 😀
Oh, I am a longtime Andrea Bocelli groupie. I love so many of his compilations, but Passione has a special place in my heart. I played that one all the time for my precious mama!
The Italian extravaganza turned out yummy (all that musical inspiration!) Last Sunday once again I grooved to Andrea Bocelli while making a big eggplant parmesan for my niece’s birthday celebration. It turned out yummy, too!
Hope that you are well, Dewin – Blessings! 🎶🍝🎶🤗🎶
With news of Bocelli’s Easter concert showing on YouTube, I had to drop you a line just in case you’d missed it being mentioned….
Should put a smile on your dial Virginia 😀
Hoping all is well in all ways. Take care,
Thanks so much for the heads up, Dewin. We are looking forward to the concert with great anticipation. Hope you have a chance to tune in, too!✨🎶✨☀️✨
You’re welcome Virginia 😀
One of my favorite artists-and I am sure the food was better. Funny, we often listen to him while we are cooking!
There’s something so inspiring about Andrea Bocelli’s voice. Wow! One of my favorite compilations is his “Passione” cd. I played it often for my precious mama, so it has a special place in my heart. (Plus every song flows!) Blessings & hugs, Michele! 🎶🤗🎶🍝🎶
