Notes and Editorial Reviews

This addition to the Golden Age series continues to feature a similar bunch of composers and orchestras as previous discs in the series. This time the theme is 'Childhood'. But childhood in what sense? This will be childhood memories of those, like me, who were children when the pieces were originally broadcast on the BBC's Light Programme. They were written between 1939 and 1955. Childhood is also their subject matter. Composers featured and not generally known are Armandola, Englemann, Charrosin, Croudson, Clair, Campbell, Brownsmith, Morley, White and Ferraris, yet fine pieces like the ones by White, Farnon and Charrosin may be familiar to the ears of listeners now in their fifties and sixties! - Guild Music
