Description

You Raise Me Up, written by Secret Garden’s Rolf Løvland and Irish novelist Brendan Graham, achieved its unique success mainly through being recorded by so many artists – around 150 of them to date.

Originally intended as an instrumental entitled ‘Silent Story’ Løvland’s melody only acquired lyrics after the Norwegian composer invited Graham — whose novels he knew — to turn it into a song for Secret Garden’s 2002 album Once In A Red Moon. It was sung on the album by Irish vocalist Brian Kennedy and although it enjoyed some success in both Ireland and Norway, the song’s eventual path to legendary status only began when Josh Groban took it to the number one spot on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary Chart in 2004. Groban performed the song at several high-profile events in the US (including Super Bowl XXXVIII, Oprah Winfrey's 50th birthday celebration, and on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he was accompanied by the African Children's Choir).

Westlife raised the song’s profile further when they made it the debut single from their album, Face To Face. It was to become an all-purpose inspirational anthem featured at everything from the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize concert to series 4 of The X-Factor in the UK. Daniel O’Donnell, Aled Jones, Katherine Jenkins, Il Divo, Russell Watson and The Mormon Tabernacle Choir have now all performed it, helping to turn Løvland and Graham’s uplifting song into a global phenomenon and a 21st century classic.

Rating Review
Customer Rating Played this last week as one of the 'hymns' at a Wedding. Had to transpose down a tone to accommodate the congregation and rework the score to allow leadership through the melody rather than just use it as piano accompaniment.

Customer Rating It would help enormously if you showed for a solo the voice range of a particular version. In buying this I did not know it changed key several times, and the singer needed to be a soprano. the music is useless to me, and I would have chosen a different version if I'd known.

Customer Rating This is truly a lovely piece of Music and I will go as far to say the best piece of Sheet Music in my vast music libary. I play it on my Tyros 4 , it was a very good and strongly recommended. Thanks Music Room.Com

Customer Rating This purchase from Music Room was a disapointment. It is no use at all for a solo pianist.

For an unaccompanied musician it is useless. I intend to send it back.
