The best yet! Dutton Epoch’s sixth volume of British Light Music Premieres presents nine composers in some 29 tuneful tracks, nominally 10 works. The disc opens with Anthony Hodges’s bustling evocation of market day at the Yorkshire town of Beverley and encompasses two Welsh composers (Hoddinott and Mansel Thomas) in folk-song mood, Philip Lane’s tuneful and varied dance movements, fast and slow, and a potpourri of show tunes by Richard Addinsell and Noel Gay from 1926. Carey Blyton’s Cinque Ports the composer described as ‘music for an opera’ in which he set five different scenes that might have taken place in a harbour town. His tango – El Tango Ultimo – distils the essence of South American dance into a few hypnotic minutes. David Morgan’s group of charming pieces – Music for Children – is crowned by John Fox’s unique musical evocation of Princess Diana – Portrait of Diana of 1997. Who said light music was dead?
