Other tracks on the album include “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “Hallelujah,” “Fratello Sole Sorella Luna,” “Amazing Grace (with Krauss),” “Preghiera (Alla Mente Confusa,” “Gratia plena,” “Cantique de Jean Racine,” “Inno Sussurato,” “Oh, Mandre Benedetta,” “Ave Maria,” “Angele Dei,” and “Agnus Dei.” Bocelli composed his own settings for the “Ave Maria” and “Padre Nostro.”
“I don’t consider myself to be a composer, however, I am a musician, and sometimes melodies come to my mind, with essentially complete harmonies,” he said in a press release. “Music that knocks on the door of my soul and which I gladly welcome and then set free by putting pen to paper… They represent the soundtrack to my childhood memories.”
