'Should more than satisfy those who like a good tune! Many of the old favourites here will be forever associated with radio and television signature tunes … Nostalgia is the key to many of thse pieces, but a collection such as this reminds us that the thing which really binds this collection together is the quality of the music itself' (BBC Music Magazine)

Sanctuary of the heart 'Méditation religieuse'
composer
1924

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
One of few light music specialists whose name is universally recognized is Albert W Ketèlbey (1875–1959). Born in Aston, Birmingham, he was educated at Trinity College, London, where he studied piano, organ, cello, clarinet, oboe and horn. He was a church organist, theatre conductor and piano soloist before making his name with his own individual brand of exotically conceived descriptive compositions. Sanctuary of the Heart (1924) is described as a ‘méditation religieuse’ and typifies their extravagant orchestration and broad melody.
