The Phantom of the Opera (Original 1986 London Cast) ~ Andrew Lloyd Webber (Composer), et al.
Now I am feeling as if the various scenes from The Phantom of the Opera are vividly reappearing on my mind. The music is touching, at times stirring.
The lyrics are well-written. Lyrics by Charles Hart, additional lyrics by Richard Stilgoe.
Let me give you an example, of part of the lyrics from the number All I Ask of You which I found moving:
No more talk
Forget these wide-eyed fears.
nothing can harm you -
my words will
warm and calm you
Let me be
dry your tears.
with you, beside you,
to guard you
and to guide you...
Many other numbers sound nice too. The lyrics and the music go pretty well together to compliment each other.
By the way, Simple American was right, Sarah Brightman has such a beautiful voice. Her voice moves.
Now I have Emrah to thank for his recommendations to me.
