Notes & Reviews:

Guild continues its series within its Light Music series with this second volume of composers conducting their own music. These must be counted as historic occasions, when composers allowed us to hear their music, presumably just as they intended.

"There are some big names here, mostly culled from British light music maestri, and some excellent music. Labels include Chappell, Paxton, and Rex, in addition to Big Boys such as HMV, Mercury and Decca, and it’s always good to see such a balance being honoured. There’s an unusually wide spread of recording dates, too; 1930-60. Something for everyone, really." -MusicWeb-Interntational
