Glorious (2012) is the second studio album from the British soprano Laura Wright.
The album comes after touring the UK with Alfie Boe, being handpicked to perform the official Jubilee anthem, "Stronger As One", for The Queen at Diamond Jubilee Celebrations and singing the national anthem at the Six Nations rugby.
The album includes renditions of "Jerusalem",  "Race to the end (Chariots of fire)", "White Cliffs of Dover" and "Danny Boy".

The song "Race To the End (chariots of fire)", is a vocal version based on the Chariots of Fire main theme: "Titles" from the Vangelis album Chariots of fire.

Race to the end lyrics (Chariots of fire)

There is but one freedom
Man running along
Each step that he's taking
A step to his soul

The passion and courage
It takes to be there
The spirit of freedom
Alive in the air

Whenever the running man awakes
To challenge to glory
He knows he can turn the key once more
To unlock the soul

The way becomes clearer
The way is complete
The need, that of winning
Admit no defeat

The circles together
Hold hands to the sky
The freedom of running
The freedom to fly


Let no man surround himself with pain
But use it to free him
The game is to learn to live again
To try to the end

A race to the end
To try to the end
A race to the end
