Notes and Editorial Reviews
A new album of the very best from the world's favorite soprano.

The Art of Renée Fleming brings together 18 defining tracks spanning Renée's finest Decca recordings, including favorite arias by Puccini, Handel and Gershwin and duets with Bryn Terfel and Placido Domingo.

Four special bonus tracks reflect Renée's prominence beyond classical repertoire with two Broadway classics, Amazing Grace - which she memorably sang at the site of the World Trade Centre and a brand new version of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.
