4 Vayne, Kyra with Palmer, Andrew Kyra Vayne: A Voice Reborn
Arcadia 1999 1900850273 / 9781900850278 Paperback New 
190pp, 8 plates. Foreword by Sue Lawley. ; Kyra Vayne was born in Petrograd in 1916. Her White Russian parents fled to London when she was a small child, amid scenes of great chaos. She became a singer and at the height of her career appeared with some of the greats of the era including Gigli, Gobbi, Bergonzi and the young Janet Baker. Disaster struck when her agent committed suicide; on his death Kyra quit the stage forever and became a secretary at the BBC. In the early 1990s Kyra's career blossomed anew with the release of three CDs of her music recorded at her peak and made from old tapes forgotten under her bed. They were an immediate success which led to a cult following. Latterly Kyra recorded a CD of new songs - at the age of eighty-one.
