If the names Robert Farnon, David Rose, Sidney Torch, Percy Faith, Eric Coates, Stanley Black, Morton Gould and Andre Kostelanetz already mean something to you, then you will need no further encouragement to go back in time to a period when ‘popular music’ was simply a term that meant it was enjoyed by millions. Light Music is tuneful music, you hear the melody and you feel better for it. Although the world was blighted by war, the 1940s nevertheless managed to produce an amazing outpouring of many musical styles. In retrospect it can be seen that Light Music was at the crossroads: would the genteel sounds of the early years of the 20th century be swept away by a brash tide of mediocrity, or would new talents emerge to adapt and even improve upon what had gone before? Happily for us, Light Music would survive, and reach even greater heights.
 

"No light music enthusiast can afford to ignore this CD. An excellent selection of 1940s light music at its most evocative its age…. "
