The selection of tracks is fantastic, with some great artists, although I wanted it particularly the Love theme to "A Summer Place" by Max Steiner. However, I have been playing it a lot over the last few weeks. This is a quality recording and the price for a two CD Set is amazing. Treat yourself, it is worth it. Would highly recommend.
This CD arrived in the middle of winter while I was nursing a heavy cold. I played it then to remind me of summer, the same reason why I love playing Rodrigo in the winter, but now that a well above average summer has arrived I can say that these CDs can provide a marvellous accompaniment to many a summer activity. It includes a number of short pieces like Butterworth's Banks of Green Willow and Elgar's Chanson de Matin, the most summery piece of music I know, Coates' By the Sleepy Lagoon, which sounds much nicer when it's not a radio programme sinature tune, and a whole host of other favourites including an absolutely exquisite Serenade by Haydn. I'm not madly keen on compilations but this one is definitely worth buying.
