Reviews

'If these ardent renderings … do not find a place in your heart then you should wonder what your heart's made of' (Classic FM Magazine)
Wilfrid Sanderson wrote the stirring music to this quintessentially English song of The Great War. McCormack (who else?) made a thrilling recording of it in 1918 and sang it throughout the War, raising huge sums of money for the Red Cross.

from notes by Robert White 1995
