Description

Here in two nostalgia-packed CDs is British light music at its finest, created by such giants of the genre as Robert Farnon, Eric Coates, Ron Goodwin and Charles Williams, and played in stunning fashion by Britain's legendary light orchestras.

Richly familiar signature tunes from radio's golden age like By the 'Sleepy Lagoon' (Desert Island Discs) and 'Coronation Scot' (Paul Temple) mingle alongside such celebrated classics as 'The Warsaw Concerto' and 'Elizabethan Serenade' - every one a tried and true British light music favourite that will enrich, delight and relax with every hearing.
