Heart & Hereafter

From the seed of an idea in 2013, Elizabeth has researched, curated, and recorded this album of selected songs by the British composer, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor with the renowned pianist, Simon Lepper. The album showcases the breadth, delicacy, and imagination of Coleridge-Taylor as a song-composer, and is Elizabeth’s debut solo album, recorded and produced under lockdown in the UK.

The album has received 4- and 5-star reviews from critics, and was the Sunday Times’ “Album of the Week”.

“The soprano’s debut, singing 25 songs by the mixed-race Victorian composer, is a delight – she and pianist Lepper really mine their essence” – Guardian, 4-stars

“…this is an album all lovers of English music, or of unjustly neglected curiosities, will want to have.” – Mail on Sunday, 5-stars

“Llewellyn’s diction is excellent, you never really needs the song texts, and she combines this with a lovely creamy tone and, when needed, that sense of having more reserves under the hood. Throughout she is sensitively partnered by Lepper… Like the best such discs, each song they perform makes you want to hear more.” – Planet Hugill, 5-stars
