In the Queens diamond jubilee year and with the Olympics on the horizon Russell wanted to celebrate all things British with his new album Anthems – Music To Inspire A Nation. A collection of considered, rousing, beautiful songs from around the country, sung deep from the heart, as only Russell can. A stirring vocal, an emotive song, think last night of the proms, it’s all here. Russell’s unique, interpretations ofsporting anthems Proud and Race to the End (theme from Chariots of Fire) alongside his epic take on the patriotic anthems of Scotland, England and Wales are all sung with enough verve to inspire a nation. Russell’s duet performed with Dame Vera Lynn using vocals from the original wartime recording when she was the forces sweetheart and barely twenty will touch the hardest of hearts. A guest appearance by the Fron Male VoiceChoir on Calon Lan, and a tear jerking version of The Londonderry Air (Danny Boy) all segue together to make up this extraordinary album.
