Il Divo - Live from BarcelonaThe Armani boys brigade is back with another collection of operatic-pop weepers, just in time for Christmas. Recorded on their worldwide tour of 81 cities and 32 countries, this CD-DVD package includes the handsome, multinational quartet’s typically over-the-top renditions of classical hits and pop classics sung in English, Italian, Spanish and Latin, including “Somewhere,” “My Way,” “Amazing Grace” and “Nights in White Satin.” Best of all is Il Divo’s suave Spanish version of Leonard Cohen’s glorious “Hallelujah.”
