Vatican City (AP) A new album of songs based on poems by the Late Pope John Paul II and performed by Placido Domingo goes on sale in Italy.

The world famous tenor says the album “Amore Infinito” (“infinite love”) will not just speak to the faithful. He says “these are songs for everyone.”

The 12-track record was presented Friday at the Vatican.

The CD features duets with Andrea Bocelli, Vanessa Williams and Katherine Jenkins. The lyrics are in Italian, English and Spanish.

The Deutsche Grammophon Record Label says the CD will come out next month in Mexico, where Domingo grew up, and worldwide in January.

John Paul II published poems, plays and philosophical essays before he became Pope. He died in 2005.
