A Cen­te­nary Trib­ute to Vera Lynn:

Evergreen - - Yesterday's Music -

Al­though fa­mous as “The Forces’ Sweet­heart”, fol­low­ing a poll in the early days of the Sec­ond World War when ser­vice­men voted her their favourite singer, Vera Lynn was re­garded with sim­i­lar af­fec­tion on the home front. Her songs of love, long­ing and hope for the fu­ture struck a chord with ev­ery­one who heard them, win­ning her a unique place in the hearts of the gen­eral pub­lic. This love and re­spect for Dame Vera has con­tin­ued ever since, and as she cel­e­brated her one- hun­dredth birth­day in March this year we are de­lighted to pay our own trib­ute in the form of a new CD of all her most pop­u­lar songs.
