5.0 out of 5 stars Queen's Hall Light Orchestra 22 April 2002
By Graham Miles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the first in a series of CD's which re-issue some of the great Chappell mood music of the 1950's. Volume 2 is now available, and Volume 3 is in preparation with a release date of late 2002. The Queen's Hall Light Orchestra was the "house" orchestra of Chappell & Co., which provided "theme" or "mood" music to radio, motion pictures and television. The selections here are some of the most popular and recognizable of the Chappell library, having been meticulously researched and selected by David Ades of Britain's "Robert Farnon Society" There are several tracks by Mr.Farnon included, he having been a prolific contributor to Chappells in its hey-day. This series is a must buy for all lovers of British Light Music.
5.0 out of 5 stars Music That Was Bright and Bouncy 13 Feb 2014
By Michael J. Oldfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For those who grew up with rock, pop or rap music, the music recorded by the Queen's Hall Light Orchestra in the 1940's and 1950's will have little appeal. But...for those of us who were in the broadcasting business during that period, these timeless tunes bring back many happy memories. Most of this music was issued on 78 rpm discs by Chappel and Boosey & Hawkes to radio and later TV stations to be used as background music, fillers and opening and closing themes for various shows. Here you will find stirring sports marches, music for fashion shows and just plain bouncy feel-good music used to introduce radio and television programmes of the past. We are very lucky that someone had the good sense to capture and preserve this music. Let's face it...we're never gonna see those old 78's again but now we can still listen to some great music from past times.
