Soprano Laura Wright's flight

Not quite 22, the Royal College of Music opera student has already recorded several albums. In the first video below, Laura Wright sings a British folk song incandescently, while John Rutter, Paul Mealor, and Patrick Hawes, who arranged the songs, talk about them. In the next video, she's shed the eye make-up, and sounds even more beautiful.

Drink to me only with thine eyes.

In Glorious, to be released this month, she takes flight with Jerusalem, Sancte Deus (Nimrod), (There'll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs Of Dover, Race To The End (Chariots Of Fire), Danny Boy, Born Free, Stronger As One (an official anthem for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee), My Love Is Like A Red, Red Rose, I Vow To Thee, My Country, Land Of Hope And Glory, and Benedictus.
