Even those who don't speak Italian will be moved by the setting, the songs, and Micheal's powerful and melodic voice.Over the past ten years,Michéal Castaldohas entertained more than 500,000 people across the USA, Canada, and Europe with creative and rousing renditions of classic Italian songs. Castaldos performances are enchanting, heartfelt, and authentic. He treats the audience to stories, spoken in English and Italian, in between songs that share moments from his Italian upbringing, tidbits about his musical journey, and insight that went into his song choices. All songs are sung in Italian with a few sung in English and Latin as well.
Live performance of songs from Castaldos Extravergine CD will include "Oh Santa Notte" (Oh Holy Night), "E Nato Il Bambino Gesu" (What Child Is This?), "Batte Nel Cuore, Suona Natale" (Little Drummer Boy), "Gioia Nel Mondo" (Joy To The World), "Puoi Sentire Quel' Che Sent Io?" (Do You Hear What I Hear?), and "Astro Del Ciel" (Silent Night). Castaldo translated the well-known Polish carol, "Jezus Malusuenki" now entitled, "Piccolo Jesu," which will also be featured along with "Gloria in Excelsis Deo," "Tu Scendi Dalle Stelle," "Va Pensiero," and "Adeste Fideles."
Fr. Michael Gori, OFM Cap., the first Capuchin Franciscan pastor of Saint Ann Catholic Church, oversaw the laying of the cornerstone of the church on All Saints Day in 1925. The magnificence of this House of Prayer, remarkable for its pure Romanesque architecture, the monumental marble alter towering in the sanctuary, the elegance of the stained-glass windows, and the flood of light effused throughout the interior of the church coupled with the majestic harmony of the organ music and the rhythmic concert of the bells ringing in the steeple, dazzled the senses and inspired one and all to praise and glorify God. The parish is still ministered to by the Capuchin Friars, withFr. Remo DiSalvatore, OFM Cap., serving as pastor. For more information, visithttp://www.stannhoboken.com/
Fr. Remo notes, I was looking online for an Italian performer for our famous Feast of St. Ann and came across Micheals Christmas concert at a church in New Jersey. He immediately captured my attention with his magnificent voice and reverent presence as he sang the beautiful Christmas hymns. With the beauty of the newly restored Saint Ann Catholic Church as his venue, Micheal will bring the Christmas message of love to the hearts of all present and will help us prepare for the celebration of the birth of Christ.
