Variety is the keynote in this extremely varied collection, ranging from the Broadway stage (the exciting opening number from "The Hot Mikado") to the golden age of Hollywood (Alfred Newman's atmospheric theme for "A Letter To Three Wives"). As usual in Guild CDs there are some classics of Light Music, so you won't be surprised to find a major Eric Coates 'Phantasy' - "The Three Bears", and pieces by the likes of Clive Richardson, Angela Morley (Wally Stott) and Ray Martin. Lesser known composers incude Horace Dann (his unfairly neglected "Worester Beacon") and Cecil Milner, who arranged for many top conductors from Charles Williams to Mantovani.
