Patrick Hawes writes for Laura Wright
Novello composer Patrick Hawes has collaborated with Laura Wright for a disc of traditional folk songs, on the Decca label. Patrick has arranged seven of these folk songs for the disc, including Lavender's Blue, My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean, and Skye Boat Song.

Laura was named BBC Chorister of the Year at 15 years old and went on to study at London's Royal College of Music. She originally rose to fame as a member of the classical girl quartet All Angels, who had the fastest selling debut for a classical record, consequently selling a million albums. Laura is now 21 and has decided to move away from her classical roots, debuting instead as a traditional British folk singer.

Her debut album The Last Rose is out now and went straight to number 1 in the classical charts (beating new entry Joseph Calleja's The Maltese Tenor), as well as achieving number 24 in the overall album charts.
