Rhydian released a unique recording of the famous ‘Pearl Fishers Duet’ on June 8th to coincide with the start of the World Cup. The single was released worldwide as a download which also contains the previously unreleased song ‘Per Sempre’ and exclusive video content.

The recording features Rhydian singing both the baritone and tenor parts of the song, accompanied by the Orchestra Of St. John’s, conducted by John Lubbock.

It is featured on the album, One Day Like This, which maintained its position at the top of the Official Classical Album Chart for 10 weeks after it’s release in mid April.

Speaking about the recording Rhydian said:

“The Pearl Fishers Duet is the single most influential song for me as it was this song that made me want to become a professional singer. I was moved to tears when I first heard the melody when I was 14 upon seeing the opera ‘The Pearl Fishers’. I went to see it with my mum on her request. I was a rugby player so didn’t really want to be seen at the opera with my mum, but it was one of the best decisions of my life as it ignited the flame of passion for beautiful music that burns bigger and brighter today than ever before. This song should be heard by everyone, opera lover or not; it will move and captivate you. I believe it’s the new Nessun Dorma!”
