A music-box of vintage treasures, beautifully sung by a remarkable woman.”

– Sir Michael Parkinson

A glorious compilation of nostalgic songs; evergreens that are still enjoyed by young and old, Our Lovely Day brings to life the sounds of a cherished era. Despite the continuing popularity of such numbers as Smilin’ Through, Come to the Fair, and the criminally catchy Nice Cup of Tea, many of these gems haven’t been recorded in several decades. Others, such as Love’s Old Sweet Song and We’ll Gather Lilacs, are almost standards. “It’s a distillation of my favourites and the favourites of the many people I’ve sung to,” says Patricia. “It’s wonderful when these two things go together!” A mixture of songs from Patricia’s childhood, her ongoing sheet music collection, and audience requests, this CD presents 13 specially-commissioned arrangements, using two exciting young talents, Matt Redman and Nick Ball, who also provide 16 of the 31 instruments used on the album. Drink To Me Only and I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls use a simple harp accompaniment, three songs are for piano and voice, and the rest range from a small early jazz ensemble including spoons, banjo and violin, to a lavish assortment of orchestral sounds.

  5. stephen brown Says:

    I reckon you should do Stephen Fosters Old Dog Tray which is a great song like all of his and will go down well with an English audience but as a cat person rather it may go against the grain ?!

    I first discovered you on Youtube and ordered the album from Amazon. Truly wonderful. I don’t suppose you’ve got any bookings in Paris?!

    Thank you so much for endless hours of listening pleasure.

  10. Lee Shipton Says:

    I first saw/heard Patricia on Neil Brand’s programme, “The Sound of Song”, on BBC 4. I agree with all the comments. I too like this era. It was like a breath of fresh air to hear someone sing so clearly. The clip on the programme was all too short. Thank you.

  11. Susan Sheward Says:

    Are you singing in London week commencing 4th December? If so where as we would love to see you again.

  12. JOHN HALL Says:

    Hello Patricia
    I have just bought my 3rd copy of Lovely Day. My Sophie and I have one each but now I am trying to convert my oldest daughter Jennie! She used to be into Techno so there is much work ahead.

    I do hope you have more UK dates before disappearing to BC again. Sophie and I miss you Patricia.
    God Bless and see you soon we hope.
    Kind Regards
    John and Sophie Hall
