"The untrained voices of the descendants add weight to the message of In Flanders Fields, which is not to forget."
- The Telegraph

“The poetry borne of the struggles of World War One captured so hauntingly the trauma experienced by a generation of young men. Poets such as John McCrae and Wilfred Owen express this tragedy in a manner that only those who have seen it first-hand can describe. This album will help keep these moments alive for future generations.”
- Charles Byrne, Royal British Legion director of fundraising

British actors including Sean Bean, Stephen Fry and Danny Dyer team up to record this spoken word and music album to commemorate 100 years since the beginning of World War One. The centenary album, endorsed by The Royal British Legion, also features contributions from ITV's Cold Feet star John Thomson, the cast of stage musical War Horse and British Prime Minister David Cameron. Following months of research, the Royal British Legion and the Victoria Cross Trust tracked down descendants of a group of Victoria Cross recipients, who join the celebrities on this unique collection of recordings. Poems include In Flanders Field, Dulce Et Decorum Est, The Soldier, Anthem for Doomed Youth and more and the moving music includes Abide With Me, The Day Thou Gavest, Pack Up Your Troubles and a brand new version of Only Remembered. Funds raised by the album will go towards meeting the daily costs of helping and supporting service personnel and their families.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
