Scepter'd Isle CD

Light music was once the staple fare of our country but was allowed to slip into obscurity when the need for signature tunes and recorded mood music nearly died with the expansion of postwar television. Happily, thanks to the dedicated work of a whole coterie of both amateurs and professionals, the tide has turned and there is now more of this wonderful music available on CD than ever before. So, sit back, close your eyes and enjoy the best of British Light Music
