Once again it?s time for Guild?s ?Golden Age of Light Music? series to take another musical tour around Europe, prompted by so many appealing works created by talented composers from near and far. In the world of music you do not have to be a native to express the beauty in a favourite location: the saying ?the onlooker sees more of the game? sums it all up quite well. The first four tracks visit the home countries of the British Isles, before setting out for a varied selection of melodies either created in the places they salute, or else written and performed from far away as tributes to places worshipped from afar. With names such as Robert Farnon, George Melachrino, Mantovani, Michel Legrand and David Rose involved the result has to be a most satisfying and nostalgic musical tour.
