Paul McCartney goes Classic for "Ecce Cor Meum," which means "Behold My Heart".
His marriage may be broken, but life must go on somehow. And so Paul McCartney keeps working on his singing career, goes musical for his upcoming album "Ecce Cor Meum," which means "Behold My Heart".
The set, said as a choral and orchestral work in both English and Latin, is scheduled to hit the market September 26.
Has had three other classically oriented albums, the former Beatle realized that writing "Ecce Cor Meum" was a difficult task that took revisions and public performances before he finally got it right.
The 64-year-old said he hopes the choral work "could be sung by young people the world over in the same way that Handel's Messiah is".
