8 track CD EP
Composer F L Dunkin Wedd’s new CD “Sunset Over The Weald”. Priced at just £5 this CD features a wide variety of Laurie’s vocal and instrumental compositions. The composer writes:
“I am so happy to be able to share the recording of Clifford and Dilys Benson performing my World War One songs – a private recording they made in their music room and which has been prepared for this CD by Mark Fawcett. As well as being an internationally-admired artist, Clifford was a very dear friend. He died on the 10th August 2007, and I miss him all the time.”
