Soprano Sophie Bevan's debut release on Wigmore Hall Live features a recital to commemorate the anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. Songs of Vain Glory draws from a wide range of songs in English, from the timeless, astral perspective of Finzi's "At a lunar eclipse" to the oceanic depths of Elgar's "Submarines" and the cozy evergreen "We'll gather lilacs." These pieces depict the excitement, disillusionment and resignation of those who must leave to fight and the love, fear and loss of those left behind.
