Notes and Editorial Reviews

Cole Porter was a musical genius who wrote both the words and music for countless songs that achieved great popularity during the middle years of the last century. One could be forgiven for thinking that the lyrics should not be divorced from the music in order to enjoy his creations to the full, but hopefully the glorious arrangements created for the fine orchestras in this collection will quickly dispel any such notions. His trademark was sophistication, and sometimes his ideas were slightly ahead of what was considered acceptable at the time, with tunes such as 'Love For Sale' raising many eyebrows in the 1930s. No longer do we need any hidden meanings in order to appreciate his beautifully crafted melodies.
