Rhapsody/Christopher Lee Tracklisting Revealed

As previously reported, back in December 2003, screen legend Christopher Lee recorded narrative parts as a Wizard King for Rhapsody's "Symphony Of Enchanted Lands II – The Dark Secret" album.

Turns out Lee himself is a talented singer possessing a rich bass/baritone voice. The actor and the band then met up again in December, 2004 to re-record the album track "The Magic Of The Wizard’s Dream," this time as a duet that would feature the singing voice of Mr. Lee.

This time producer Joey DeMaio was chosen by the band and Mr. Lee to produce the recording with the help of a Cologne string orchestra and some other guest musicians. With Lee’s command of over 12 languages, the track was recorded in four different languages - English, German, French and Italian. Also a spectacular video was shot in High Definition filmed by noted director Neil Johnson featuring a 40-piece orchestra and a 20-piece choir.

In addition to the four language versions the band also produced two brand new studio tracks, "Autumn Twilight" and "Lo Specchio D’Argento," that will also appear on this new offering, due for release on April 11th through Magic Circle Music/SPV/Steamhammer.
