This compilation represents a double celebration. Firstly it praises the talented conductors and composers who created a wealth of Light Music during the 20th Century; and secondly it recognises that this is the 100th Guild Light Music CD dedicated to the preservation of all that is best from “The Golden Age of Light Music”. Choosing the music to include in this landmark collection has not been easy, because there are so many conductors and composers who made valuable contributions to the world of Light Music during the last century. After much soul-searching it was decided to concentrate on the conductors who became household names at the time, through their regular recordings and broadcasts. Inevitably some who fully deserve to be featured on this very special occasion have had to be omitted, simply because they could not all be squeezed onto this small silver disc. Regular collectors will know that over 2,500 compositions have already appeared in this series, covering a wide variety of orchestral and brass and military band performances, so it is hoped that your own particular favourites have not been ignored for the part they have played in “The Golden Age of Light Music”.
