A Best-Selling Album In Australia Returns In A Special CD/DVD Edition!

A true icon, Vera Lynn reached her 100th Birthday on the 20th March 2017.

To celebrate this milestone, this special CD/DVD version of Vera 100, features Vera Lynn's utterly distinctive original vocals set to completely new re-orchestrated versions of her most beloved songs. This technical wizardry has, for the first time, allowed full orchestral accompaniments to transform not only her most memorable and morale-boosting hits that sustained Britons through the wartime years, but some recently unearthed, rare recordings – all presented in sumptuous, up-to-the-minute sound.

Vera's vocal on the lead track, Sailing, has not been heard for 35 years. The album features several duet partners including Alfie Boe, Alexander Armstrong , Aled Jones and the RAF Squadronaires.

Also included is a DVD of a Vera Lynn 2-hour tribute concert filmed on 18th March 2017 in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen.
