VERA LYNN 'KEEP SMILING THROUGH' CD (2020)
Brand-new, never heard before versions of re-orchestrated classic Vera Lynn songs with her beautiful, timeless and inspiring voice. Featuring one of the last known recordings on an album that Vera Lynn had made - High Flight, a moving poem, written by a WWII fighter pilot, read by Lynn and accompanied by music, plus a specially recorded medley and a special new version of White Christmas as bonus tracks.
With the Royal Air Force Squadronaires, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, The D-Day Darlings and The Alex Mendham Orchestra.
In June 2020, we lost one of our national treasures – Dame Vera Lynn. For more than half of a century, Lynn’s iconic voice had raised the nation’s spirits and has given us pride and strength, especially in difficult times of when it was needed the most.
Keep Smiling Through is the perfect commemoration of Dame Vera Lynn’s life through her songs and music.
