Wonderful news - Aksel has been working on a new CD! :D

I am really glad because his voice is richer now than when his first CD was recorded. You can follow his development as a performer quite closely because he regularly shares recordings of live performances on his Facebook page. He is growing in confidence and different experiences on stage. It's great that at this particular moment of his treble career a recording is made for CD. It will once again be baroque repertoire, which he always sings with great joy.

He is an incredible singer and while I was at firs skeptical about some of the baroque pieces I was unfamiliar with, I now like them very much. Based on his lower range speaking voice I think it is safe to assume that his treble career is nearly finished. Keep us posted, please, as to any release dates.

Aksel recently posted this video on YouTube, and I wanted to share it because I love how rich his voice sounds now as it starts to deepen. It seems that he's probably nearing the end of his treble career. I hope that it's a smooth transition, anyway, and that he'll be able to continue singing and posting videos.

I feel like, in a way, it's almost too bad his latest album wasn't recorded at this time instead of a few months ago, but then, that also would have been more risky. I'm delighted that we'll have a second album at all. It's wonderful that he continues to record and post decently high-quality videos, anyway. :)

He is a charming boy with a beautiful voice. I've checked & subscribed to, of course) his Youtube, I'm glad that he did many pieces from the Baroque era. I also showed some of his videos to my friends who enjoy vocal music - they loved it.

His voice sure is getting deeper quickly (compared to his previous performances from some months ago), and I'm curious about it in the future - I'm certain it will be beautiful, but I want to know how beautiful it will be. Well, we'll know soon, as he is growing up to be a fine gentleman.

Thank you kinda+k00l for posting Aksel's latest offering. I too am always happy to see another performance by him since we never know when it may be his last. His voice is rich and deep on this piece. I think he may have already lost his highest notes. Hopefully he will still have some more recording for us to enjoy. :D

I saw this video today. It was posted about a week ago. It is a sad day when it's the last of anything. We have followed Aksel for a while now and we have enjoyed his talent up to this point. I hope he continues to perform with his new voice. Check out the author's video page for a lengthy interview (14 minutes including the song) which is translated in the comments, just prior to Aksel singing his 'last song as a soprano'. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovGYgrz7kPc

Very well spoken and mature for his age and will certainly continue to make impressions in the music world. Thanks for the link, Jay.

I just happened to notice in Aksel's video of Eternal Source of Light Divine - at :38, the similarity to Eternal Light (Director's Cut) - at 1:28. Even the song names are similar. Could it be that Aksel's video had some inspiration from Libera's?

I'm not certain that someone could copyright the idea of a child reaching up toward sunbeams. I suspect it's a recurring theme of child oriented inspirational visual art.

Oh, I didn't mean it in any serious sense - I just thought it was interesting.
