The only new theme of the album Notte Magica – Tribute to the three tenors is Ave Maria, Mater Misericordiae, composed by Giorgio F. Pintus and Romano Musumarra. This song, although it was included in the album, was not interpreted by Il Volo in the concert held on July 1, 2016 in the Piazza Santa Croce in Florence, during which the Notte Magica album was recorded live, because it had to be performed during the World Youth Day, in front of Pope Francis.
Unfortunately, Il Volo could not keep up with the Krakow appointment due to technical problems, and the live performance of the song had to be postponed until March 2017. Il Volo sang live for the first time Ave Maria Mater Misericordiae, on March 2, 2017 in Easton (USA), although its official presentation was at the concert of Radio City Music Hall, in New York, on March 4, 2017.
Since the first performance, the song has become a favorite of the Magic Night tour viewers. It is a small jewel, in the purest style of Il Volo, which perfectly adapts to the vocal characteristics of the group. The song, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, begins softly in a low tone with the voice of Gianluca Ginoble, followed by Ignazio Boschetto and increases in intensity in the refrain by Piero Barone. But the climax comes at the end of the song, when Ignazio Boschetto attacks the highest notes and the three voices finally come together in a great harmony. The text is a perfect combination of tradition and modernity and manages to be poetic without being antiquated.
Below is a video of the execution of the Ave Maria, Mater Misericordiae on the day of its presentation in New York on March 4, 2017.

This is it, the LAST two concerts of the official Notte Magica tour! They did it. They made it! What a year it has been. A little bittersweet now…. yes, we were tiring just a little tad, for they were the same songs, just a different city. But as the tour progressed to the different countries and continents, we saw them loosen up a bit and almost get back to their old crazy selves! It was so nice to see – we missed that about them Yes, they are growing up, not children anymore, but of course, we like to see them having a good time… 🙂
Here are some videos I found on You Tube, etc. Thanks to all owners of videos/pictures. 🙂
And, we cannot forget the smiling and happy faces of the lucky folks at the meet & greets!
https://www.omgvip.com/il-volo-november-29-2017/ Wow, only 10!
https://www.omgvip.com/il-volo-december-1-2017/ Ok, a few more here, but not that many…. wonder if they had more time with them in Japan?
Their next engagement will be December 13 in Mexico, for the Ferrero Rocher concert. I’m sure they’ be singing some songs still from Notte Magica.
Right now, they are all back in Italy, somewhere…. I imagine enjoying a short break before heading back to Mexico, then it’s off to Australia, and then home, home at last, where they will be working on their next surprises for us! Will they tour next year? Only the Il Volo Shadow knows….. 🙂 Ah, wouldn’t we all want to be that shadow?
Til next time….
Yes, folks, the tour is winding down with Kiev, and just Japan after this one. Soon the memories of these concerts will be like autumn leaves, blowing in the wind. As the remnants of their voices rustle in our head like falling leaves, and we rake up the memories, let’s treasure these last two cities….
Let’s start with the meet/greet! Looks like there was a small crowd for this one and the lady in red got 3 pictures!
