Notes and Editorial Reviews

The title of this CD could almost apply to every release in Guild's ''Golden Age of Light Music" series so far, because our mission is to make available once again those recordings which have been neglected for far too long, and are no longer available from other sources. Famous composers of symphonies, marches, jazz and just about everything in-between can be found in this varied selection, mainly from the inter-war years, which surely qualifies for the adjective 'eclectic'. If anyone still needs convincing that the general term 'Light Music' covers a wide variety of styles and performances, then surely the proof is here on this CD. The featured composers range from Sir Edward Elgar and Vaughan Williams, to Ernst Fischer, Reginald Read more King and John Philip Sousa. Read less
