When Alessandro Brustenghi emerged from the elevator in a Midtown Manhattan office building, he looked like any other young rock star: just over 5 feet tall, tanned skin and a touch of scruff. Friar Alessandro kept his aviators on indoors. His eyes were weary, he explained, from a weeklong media blitz for his first record for Decca, Voice From Assisi. This was the farthest distance and the longest time the 34-year-old friar had ever been away from his Perugia homeland. We sat in a sleek room with floor-to-ceiling glass paneling that made it feel as if we were dangling in an ornament over Central Park. The friar’s publicist explained to him that the park was entirely manmade, information Brustenghi accepted with a cautious nod. In 2011, Brustenghi became the first religious brother to land an exclusive record contract with a major label. Producer Mike Hedges (U2, the Cure) heard the Italian tenor sing and invited him to record at Abbey Road Studios (“It is not possible to explain the importance of the Beatles,” Brustenghi said). But they did, under the conditions that Brustenghi take a vow of poverty — meaning that any money he earned went to the Order of Friars Minor for charitable work — along with vows of obedience and chastity. As far as Brustenghi was concerned, he was living the rock star life. When the young friar speaks, he is in sermon mode. Without hesitation, he answered, “Michael Jackson. “Michael Jackson, like Bach, recognized that the well of music is God. Bach used to sign his compositions with ‘Soli Deo Gloria’ (‘for the glory of God’) and Michael Jackson used to say that his music was from Heaven. “Music is like a key,” he continued. And in Heaven, we are enriched by the music, and we can give this gift to all people. ” You don’t have to be religious to understand where Brustenghi is coming from — the sense of wonder that accompanies the best music is universal. Still, every time Brustenghi brought up God, I cringed, thinking, “Can’t we leave Him out of it. ” Combining music and religion, attributing one to the other, struck me as hokey — a view that I would expect coming from a member of the brotherhood,... But as he spoke, I realized what Brustenghi was really talking about was a sense of awe. What does it mean to feel awe. Try describing what it feels like to be in awe of something, and it’s easy to slip into religious terminology. Music history abounds with. Source: www.wonderingsound.com
