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)
The Irish bandmaster Charles Ancliffe (1880–1952) was a light-music composer of particular accomplishment. He followed his famous waltz Nights of Gladness (1912) with others in similar style, of which Smiles, then Kisses (1913) enjoyed renewed familiarity after World War II with the craze for ‘olde tyme dances’.

Le chef de fanfare irlandais Charles Ancliffe (1880-1952) fut un compositeur de musique légère remarquablement talentueux. Plusieurs valses suivirent sa célèbre Nights of Gladness (1912), telle Smiles, then Kisses (1913), qui connut un regain de célébrité avec l’engouement pour les «olde tyme dances», caractéristique de l’après-Seconde Guerre mondiale.

Français: Hypérion

Der irische Kapellmeister Charles Ancliffe (1880-1952) war ein besonders fähiger Komponist leichter Musik. Seinem berühmten Walzer Nights of Gladness (1912) ließ er weitere in ähnlichem Stil folgen, darunter auch Smiles, then Kisses (1913), das nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg im Zuge der damaligen Begeisterung für ‘Tänze aus alter Zeit’ erneut bekannt wurde.
