Laura-Jane is honoured to have sung at Clarence House and St James’s Palace for senior members of the Royal Family. She currently sings with the Bach Choir in London.

Songs For My Daughter is a deeply personal album. I have brought together my favourite classical songs and lullabies which I sing to my daughter. I wanted to capture the natural voice of a mother singing to her child and I was really happy to record on location in the chapel of St Peter’s College, Oxford University. The soaring acoustics of the chapel combined with only a piano accompaniment have contributed to a very direct and natural recording.’ – Laura-Jane Foley
