British Light Music Classics, Vol. 4
The Archive service is for CDs which have been deleted and where the musical content is not otherwise available.

(If a CD is scheduled for re-issue within the next 3-4 months, the message 'To be reissued on …' will replace the 'Buy Archive CD' button.)

This service offers a production-quality CDR with printed label, inlay (tray) card and, at the minimum, a 2pp booklet (including cover artwork and complete track listing), packaged in a normal jewel case.

In many instances we will provide complete printed booklets, but please note that this is not always the case. Pricing is £13.99 per CD, regardless of the original sale price of the disc(s).

Here's another CD to add to our ever-popular ‘British Light Music Classics’ series, again under the sprightly baton of Ronald Corp. The mixture is as before—lots of well-known melodies, the titles and composers of which we all have trouble remembering, except perhaps for Eric Coates's By the sleepy lagoon (forever associated with 'Desert Island Discs'), In a Monastery Garden, and perhaps Jamaican Rumba. Marching Strings will be familiar to all as the signature tune of 'Top of the Form'. A couple of the titles seem not to have been heard for many years, although once popular, such as The Doge's March from 'The Merchant of Venice' incidental music, and particularly the haunting Keltic Lament of John Foulds which it seems hasn't been recorded in many a long year. The CD also contains a complete performance of the Petite Suite de Concert of Coleridge-Taylor, containing the well-known Demande et Réponse ('Question and Answer').
