Reviews

'Ronald Corp and the New London Orchestra play with their familiar accomplishment and affection and, if anything, an even surer grasp of pace than before. The CD is gratifyingly full and excellently recorded. More, please!' (Gramophone)

'Throughout, Corp … has one great asset – charm, and I defy you not to sit listening to these appealing morceaux without a permanent grin on your face' (International Record Review)

'Corp’s performances are sumptuous' (The Sunday Times)

'An artfully cherry-picked selection played with affection and zest, which will leave you with a warm glow – and perhaps a feeling of regret that no one writes music like this any more' (Classic FM Magazine)

'If you've a soft spot for this kind of repertoire you'll love it' (BBC CD Review)
Archibald Joyce (1873–1963) was a popular bandleader before and after World War I and, like Ancliffe, a successful waltz composer. He enjoyed lasting success with the waltz Dreaming (1911), but this was only one of a series of internationally popular pieces, of which Songe d’Automne (‘Autumn Dream’, 1908) was only marginally less successful.

Archibald Joyce (1873-1963) fut un chef de fanfare populaire avant et après la Première Guerre mondiale, doublé, à l’instar d’Ancliffe, d’un compositeur de valses à succès. Bien qu’elle lui valut un succès durable, sa valse Dreaming (1911) ne fut que l’une de ses nombreuses pièces internationalement populaires et son Songe d’automne (1908) remporta un succès à peine moins marqué.

Français: Hypérion

Archibald Joyce (1873-1963) war vor und nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg ein populärer Kapellmeister und ebenso wie Ancliffe erfolgreicher Walzerkomponist. Bleibenden Erfolg hatte sein Walzer Dreaming (1911), aber dies war nur eines aus einer Reihe international beliebter Stücke, von denen Songe d’Automne (‘Herbsttraum’, 1908) kaum weniger erfolgreich war.
