'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)
Monckton’s collaborator on innumerable Gaiety shows, Ivan Caryll (1861–1921), was a bon viveur and larger-than-life character. Belgian by birth, he spent most of his mature years in Britain before moving to America. It was actually for America that he composed The Pink Lady (1911). This included the waltz song My Beautiful Lady, which London arranger H M Higgs (1855–1929) made the principal melody of the waltz on themes from the show.

Collaborateur de Monckton pour ces spectacles du Gaiety, Ivan Caryll (1861-1921) était un bon viveur, un personnage outrancier. Belge de naissance, il vécut l’essentiel de sa maturité en Grande-Bretagne, avant de partir s’installer en Amérique, où il composa The Pink Lady (1911), dont est extraite la chanson-valse My Beautiful Lady (Parrangeur londonien H.M. Higgs [1855-1929] en fit la principale mélodie de la valse sur des thèmes issus du spectacle).

Moncktons Mitarbeiter bei den Shows für das Gaiety Theatre, Ivan Caryll (1861-1921), war als Lebemann und theatralische Gestalt bekannt. Von Geburt Belgier, verbrachte er einen Großteil seines Erwachsenenlebens in Großbritannien, ehe er nach Amerika ging. The Pink Lady (1911) zum Beispiel war eine Komposition für Amerika. Darin enthalten ist das Walzerlied My Beautiful Lady, dem der Londoner Arrangeur H.M. Higgs (1855-1929) die Hauptmelodie für einen Walzer über Themen der Show entnahm.
