“HYMN,” and the “HYMN: Sarah Brightman In Concert” DVD, Blu Ray, Deluxe CD/DVD and CD/BR Special Editions, which mark the multiplatinum Grammy® award-nominated classical crossover pioneer’s first new studio recording and film since she released the international chart-topper “Dreamchaser” in 2013.
“‘HYMN’ is excitingly eclectic, encompassing many different styles, and I'm looking
forward to performing the new songs on my world tour,” Brightman said. “Every project I’ve done has come from an emotional place, and I wanted to make something that sounded very beautiful and uplifting. To me, ‘HYMN,’ suggests joy, a feeling of hope and light, something that is familiar and secure, and I hope that sentiment resonates through the music.”
The spiritually themed “HYMN” is an inspirational collection of orchestrated, choir-based songs that Brightman says felt soothing to record at this moment in her life.
