Editors’ Notes

A rising classical crossover star in her native Great Britain, soprano Laura Wright shines on this thoughtfully programmed album. Anglophiles may recognize “Stronger as One,” which Robert Hartshorne wrote as the official anthem for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. With South African–style harmony vocals and a choir of Afro-Latin percussion, Wright’s nearly vibrato-free tone soars with deft accompaniment from the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, as conducted by Richard Hein. Glorious features a pair of pieces by Elgar, as well as beloved English and Irish standards (“The White Cliffs of Dover” and “Danny Boy,” respectively). The early-twentysomething Wright brings a sincere authenticity to adult pop songs from the ‘60s (“Born Free”) and ‘70s (“The Rose”), and she's showcased in two instrumental classics with added lyrics: “Race to the End,” based on Vangelis’ “Chariots of Fire,” and the bonus track “Flame of Love,” adapted from Ravel’s “Bolero."

Absolutely stunning with Race to the End her performance being my personal highlight. The only way to top it is to hear her perform live.


What a beautiful voice. A must have album for the summer!


"Glorious" sums it up - another great album of varied classics made accessible for all in this fine release from Decca. Laura Wright sings with a warmth and ease that is at home in Elgar, through to White Cliffs, where she clearly enjoys the change of style. Her voice floats on high notes without ever being insubstantial. She is supported by the typically excellent Cirty of Prague Phil, and the accompanying choir are equally skilled. An excellent production!
