For UK release 16 April
A beautiful collection of songs by celebrated British composers, brought to life by the revered duo the OperaBabes.
“This album is without doubt the truest reflection of what we do”
A message from The OperaBabes
"Well, we're still here, 10 years since the release of our first album and, in the words of those at Warner Classics, this is a new beginning. There is no doubt that this album reflects the changes that have taken place in our lives and will resonate, we believe with many people across the world. There is a need to get back to truth, honesty, something more substantial and authentic. This album could not be more simple and yet more intricate both from the perspective of the music and the performance, particularly so with the Art Songs. As if peeling back the layers of an onion, we've thoroughly enjoyed every minute of delving into the hidden depths therein. Beautiful, timeless British songs from our most admired composers and lyricists, each one just telling a story. Personally, becoming parents has deeply altered, well, everything really! We have 3 little girls between us and so much of what is said in these songs could have been written from us to them. We hope that, by allowing it to become so personal and intimate, we have captured the essence of the composer's intent. More than anything else, the whole experience has been about making music – together. Composer/lyricist, arranger, accompanist and singers. This album is without doubt the truest reflection of what we do and as such we can say that we are proud of it!"
