Title: The Beautiful Game
Post by: 07-sara on May 10, 2009, 10:29AM
Just got the soundtrack for The Beautiful Game which Alex was in. 
It's interesting to hear Alex sing with her accent.  I wish I could see the musical cause the music would make more sense if I could see it performed.
Only 2 downsides to this: 1. Alex only has 2 songs with the solos and 2. It's got some 'strong' language.

I listened to the clips of Alex singing on Amazon and decided to order it just because I want to get what I can of her singing.  Mine has not arrived yet, so I'm eager to see what the whole things sounds like.  What I listened to of Alex I really liked

That's why I ordered it too, off of ebay.  I figured something was better than nothing.  Which cover did you get, the one with the couple on it or the one with the trophy?

The one with the couple.  Hope that is the right one!

They both are correct, one I believe was digitally remastered.

The CD is on iTunes, if you just want Alex's solos.

Have you found any other numbers by Alex on iTunes.  I thought I read somewhere that she had done some other recordings but I haven't found anything


Title: Re: The Beautiful Game

I finally got my CD and had a road trip so listened to it over and over.  I do love hearing Alex sing on the two numbers where you really know it's her singing, and I have always loved the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.  There are some really beautiful numbers so I'm really glad I ordered it.  Let Us Love In Peace and Our Kind of Love are wonderful and I really liked God's Own Country, also.  These tunes just stay with me.  I would love to see the play.  It seems to have a lot of sadness but such a wonderful message of letting love win out over hate.  Oh course, it would have been absolutely fantastic to have seen Alex in her role as Bernadette.  I'd really like to see her in the leading lady role of Mary, or as the lead in any of Andrew Lloyd Webbers musicals.  She is such a gifted singer and performer.  She lights up the stage with CW.

Such a talented and beautiful lady!!   I got a smile and a nod from Alex at one of the concerts but I can't remember which one-- but a great memory it is!!  She IS a Celtic Woman, on and off stage.  I'm so glad she joined the group.

What songs do Alex sing in?
Which 2 are her solos? I listened to bits of the songs, and I can guess which one's are her singing, but I'm not 100% sure

And what role did she play?

You're right, Zee!!   I loved that concert!!   It was just great to be able to look into their eyes when they  finished and tell them how wonderful it was for all of us!   Do ya really think they noticed I enjoyed the show? ? ?   :D :D :D :D

They would have to be blind to not notice, and even then I think they would have heard your excitement!

I must say that I am an Andrew Lloyd Webber fan but never heard of "The Beautiful Game" - can someone fill us in on the plot?

Wow! I barely recognized Alex. Her voice has changed quite a bit, but it was still as amazing as it was during the spring tour. Thanks for sharing the links, Marc!

That link didn't help because it was deleted, due to some inaccurate information.

"The Beautiful Game" is set in Belfast, Northern Ireland, which was a very dangerous place in the 1970s.
It is about young people, some Catholic, some Protestant, trying to live a normal life and enjoy soccer.
However, sectarian violence raises it's ugly head, and inevitably results in tragedy.
In those video clips, it is Ash Wednesday, the Catholics have been to Mass and are marked
with the sign of the Cross on their foreheads. Might as well be a target.....
