Reviews

'Ronald Corp has few rivals in conveying one prerequisite element of this repertoire – charm' (BBC Music Magazine)

'respectfully and meticulously played … this impeccably produced program – like its three predecessors – remains a precedent-setting endeavour that is sure to elicit grateful appreciation from many quarters' (Fanfare, USA)

'The playing struck me as even finer than in the past and the sound … first class, as before' (Hi-Fi News)

'The playing is exuberant, the recording ripe' (The Evening Standard)

'This fourth compilation, in Hyperion’s hugely successful British light music is another winner … Some eighty minutes of sheer delight' (MusicWeb International)

'infectious stuff, delivered with corresponding relish' (Yorkshire Post)

'Le travail entrepris par Corp et Hyperion est remarquable, sans concession à la qualité instrumentale ou sonore' (Répertoire, France)
Jack Beaver (1900–1963) was, like Charles Williams, a member of the Gaumont–British Pictures composing team in the 1930s, and as such he often contributed music to British films anonymously. Born in Clapham in south London, he studied piano and composition at The Royal Academy of Music. He did much work for the BBC and between 1932 and 1947 composed music to some forty films including The Thirty-Nine Steps (1935) and The Case of the Frightened Lady (1940). For this last he provided what was considered the first ‘tabloid piano concerto’, anticipating later examples such as Richard Addin­sell’s Warsaw Concerto. Beaver’s later contributions to the recorded music libraries included his Waltonesque grand march Cavalcade of Youth (1950), which achieved wide exposure when used as signature tune for the BBC radio series The Barlows of Beddington.
