On Easter Sunday, Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli performed a solo concert, titled Music for Hope, from an empty Duomo cathedral in Milan, Italy, streamed live to millions of people around the world amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Accompanied only by the cathedral organist, Emanuele Vianelli, Bocelli sung a chosen selection of pieces, specially arranged for solo voice and organ for the occasion, including the beloved Ave Maria by Bach/Gounod and Amazing Grace, opening completely unaccompanied – an incredibly poignant moment in a city under continued lockdown, alongside a stirring programme of sacred music for one of the holiest days of the year. The recording was released digitally on audio streaming services within hours.
