This collection features some 26 different orchestras and over 30 composers all with one specific aim in mind – to create great music with the strings to the fore. Newcomers to the Guild Light Music series include the talented French composer and conductor Gérard Calvi plus, from the other side of the Atlantic, Don Gillis, Florian Zabach, George Cates and Pépé Gonzalez (a pseudonym for an unidentified classical conductor from South America). Guild ‘regulars’ are also out in force, with Frank Chacksfield, Ray Martin, Clive Richardson, Trevor Duncan and Angela Morley represented in fine compositions that will delight light music purists. There are also some much requested gems from Kermit Leslie, Florian ZaBach and Roger Roger, making this a truly vintage compilation that will be welcomed by existing Guild ‘Golden Age’ fans, and newcomers to the series alike.
