This is a 75-minute treat, 23 sparkling tunes from the masters of light music. It starts with Eric Coates’s vivacious Dance in the Twilight and ends with his Dam Busters March. In between are favourites by Haydn Wood, Ernest Tomlinson, Robert Farnon, Ronald Binge and many more – including Elizabethan Serenade, Portrait of a Flirt and Montmartre. Add readings by the cream of the genre’s conductors: Dunn, Kilbey, Weldon and Coates himself – plus splendidly refurbished sound – and you have an irresistible bargain. Ian Lace
