Following the massive success of 'One Voice' earlier this year,  Aled Jones MBE returns with a brand new duet album titled 'One Voice at Christmas' ; a collection of popular classics including his worldwide smash, 'Walking in the Air,' which was first a UK hit more than 30 years ago.
Re-arranged for 2016 by Howard Blake, 'Walking in the Air' leads the 13-track album which includes traditional Christmas songs such as 'O Holy Night' and 'O Come, O Come, Emmanuel', through to seasonal favourites including 'Little Drummer Boy' (duet with Sir Terry Wogan),  'Away in a Manger,' 'In the Bleak Midwinter' and 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas'.
Once again,  Aled duets with his younger self – man and boy – on the album which features a brand new setting of 'It Came Upon a Midnight Clear', composed by Howard Goodall, plus a collaboration with guitarist John Williams on 'Silent Night'.
In April this year, Classic FM presenter Aled released his first duet album, 'One Voice', on the Classic FM label following the discovery of the last ever recordings of him as a boy.  A unique concept, the album went straight in at no.3 in the UK Album Chart, and dominated the no.1 position in the Classical Chart for a staggering 14 weeks.
Aled Jones has had an extraordinary career over the past three decades. He has performed for Her Majesty the Queen, the Pope and numerous members of the Royal Family.  He has released more than 30 albums generating 8 million albums sales and counting.  He has performed across the world from the Hollywood Bowl to The Vatican and from Buckingham Palace to the Sydney Opera House, via the Suntory Hall in Tokyo.  Never staying in his comfort zone, he has performed in English, Welsh and Japanese.
Millions know him for his radio and TV presenting work which includes his Sunday breakfast show on Classic FM and his own flagship ITV show 'Weekend'. However it is his music and his voice which has in-grained him in the fabric of music since the 1980s.  His charity work has also led to Aled to release two singles with Sir Terry Wogan, one of which is featured on the album with Little Drummer Boy.
Aled said,  “The support I had from Classic FM for 'One Voice' was overwhelming and making the album brought back such brilliant memories. To go back in the studio and do it again for Christmas is just a dream come true. 'Walking in the Air' caps off such a great year for me and I’m thrilled to give it a new lease of life. Who knows, maybe we’ll get to the top of the Christmas chart again!”.
One Voice at Christmas will be released on Friday 25th November on the Classic FM label.
