'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)
Jack Strachey (1894–1972), born in Brighton, became known between the Wars for his theatre songs, among them ‘These Foolish Things’ (1936). Later he composed orchestral pieces for light-orchestral libraries, including the march Theatreland (1940) which provides testimony to his love of the theatre and is heard here in its original orchestration by Don Bowden (1906–1966).

Né à Brighton, Jack Strachey (1894-1972) devint célèbre, dans l’entre-deux-guerres, pour ses chansons de théâtre, dont «These Foolish Things» (1936). Plus tard, il composa des pièces orchestrales pour des collections de musique orchestrale légère, incluant la marche Theatreland (1940, entendue ici dans l’orchestration originale, signée Don Bowden [1906-1966]), preuve de son amour du théâtre.

Später komponierte er Orchesterstücke für Sammlungen leichter Musik. Der Marsch Theatreland (1940) kündet von seiner Liebe zum Theater und ist hier in der ursprünglichen Orchestrierung von Don Bowden (1906-1966) zu hören.
