SOFTLY AWAKES MY HEART
CELEBRATING THE MAJESTIC CAREER OF
LOUISE KIRKBY LUNN

‘Michael Letchford’s previous books on singers of the past have been distinguished by exceptional quality in terms of biographical and musical research, printing and presentation and accompanied by a CD of some of the artist’ famous recordings. This latest book is no exception, maintaining the quality for which this author is well-known....the book is illustrated with some rare photographs and posters, setting a standard which will be difficult to match and impossible to improve upon. This book is most enthusiastically recommended.’
Robert Matthew-Walker, Musical Opinion Quarterly

‘As Sir Henry Wood is quoted in the book as saying “Kirkby Lunn was a singer of whom England may be justly proud - a singer with a glorious voice and an even tone throughout a compass of well over two octaves.” She should be better known and appreciated. This book and it accompanying CD go far along the road to achieving that. Recommended.’
John Banks, The Record Collector
