Product Description

CD Description

Glorious is the second studio album from 21-year-old British soprano Laura Wright. In 2011, Laura became one of the biggest selling classical artists in the UK, out-selling some of the world's biggest classical names. The album comes after touring the UK with Alfie Boe, being handpicked to perform the official Jubilee anthem, "Stronger As One", for The Queen at Diamond Jubilee Celebrations and singing the national anthem at the Six Nations rugby. The album includes renditions of "Jerusalem", "White Cliffs of Dover" and "Danny Boy".

5.0 out of 5 stars Glorious 30 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I loved Laura's first album so much I knew I had to order this one as soon as I could and the title 'Glorious' is a great one for this album. This is really fitting music for 2012 and this album is full of great songs. Laura's voice is beautiful and these songs show off the best parts of her voice, she has a really clear upper register and this is best heard on the tracks 'Benedictus' and 'Sanctus'.

The arragements on this album are also very good; I think it is important to have new arrangements especially as these are songs that I have heard many times before. The way Laura sings the songs and the way they are arranged means that they are not boring and even songs like 'Danny Boy' which I thought I would not like because so many others have sung it before have become my favourite songs on the album.

I think Laura's voice is very expressive on this album, she sings with emotion and passion on many songs such as 'White Cliffs of Dover' and 'Born Free'.

'The Rose' is another standout track, I love the instruments used and the way Laura sings it. The symbolism of rose is on another song on this album and connects to England and also to her first album 'The Last Rose'. The original track 'stronger as one' which is for the Diamond Jubilee fits in so well, I love the African vocals as well as it adds another dimension to the album. All of the songs on this album really are 'glorious' and Laura has a 'glorious' voice to match, some songs are patriotic such as 'Land of Hope and Glory' but most of the songs are simply great songs. Another stunning album from Laura, I hope to hear more from her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glorious!! 18 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The title says it all. Laura Wright goes from strength to strength and this CD brings an added maturity to her already pure voice. I particularly liked her rendition of "The White Cliffs of Dover" which brought an unexpected poignancy to those dark days of wartime Britain.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs the right material 2 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The problem is that Laura Wright has a stunning voice - she's just recording the wrong type of material. 'Glorious', unlike 'The Last Rose' (her debut solo effort), has a few songs that are right for her and there's an original song, which makes it a mild improvement.

Wright is not expressive, she's a straight arrow choral singer; the vocals are technically perfect and she has a beautiful quality to her voice, but it's dead nor does it have power. At no moment does she sound authentic or connected to her material. Having her sing patriotic songs is, in my view, absolutely absurd. These songs are supposed to rouse us, be big, be infectious, be imbued with pride and passion; instead she's sending us to sleep. The majority of the material suffers in the same way as it did in her debut. Perhaps the public agrees as Russell Watson's conceptually identical album is performing vastly better than this one.

Fortunately Wright recorded two songs for this album that suited her perfectly and reminded me why I was such a big fan of her voice when she was in All Angels. 'Sanctus' (a choral adaptation of Elgar's 'Nimrod') and Karl Jenkins's 'Benedictus' are right on the money. True, 'Sanctus' was pretty much lifted from All Angels's second album 'Into Paradise' but the all new choral arrangement (no instruments) truly makes it worthwhile. I saw her do this live and thought I was in love with her again, but the rest of the set included 'The Rose' and 'Race to the End' which soured me almost instantly. She just shouldn't be singing pop songs; she only got away with them in All Angels because Daisy Chute was there to give them soul.

This was bought for the mother in law who loves classical and likes a range of new artists. This singer was new to me seen on tv at the Buckingham Palace bash. She is a knock out lady and singer par excellance!
